January rolled around and talk of the 2012 crawl started. I excitedly pulled out my calendar to start planning my crawl route. Then I thought - how amazing would it be if I could be part of the event? So I rang up my faithful fibery partner Ady and we drafted a proposal: a hand-dyed yarn trunk show as one of the Yarn Crawl features. I sent it to Courtney, crossed my fingers and waited for her to tell me they were already booked and didn't have a place for us. Instead, I got an incredibly friendly and enthusiastic response saying she would love to have us. I could hardly believe it!
Two months later, we found ourselves setting up our tables as customers lined up outside, waiting for opening time. Then the doors opened - and a wonderful day started. Hundreds of people came to Seed Stitch. Everyone was amazingly friendly and super enthusiastic about our work. I can't remember the last time I smiled so hard! We met wonderful knitters from all over, made new friends and talked about upcoming knitting projects. The day ended too quickly, but I will always have wonderful memories.
