LA Yarn Crawl Here We Come....

One of my LYC members and I trotted off Thursday the 12th [the 1st day of the yarn crawl] on the LA Yarn Crawl...we had 10 stores lined up that we wanted to stop at up the coastline, [next time I will drive up to the farthest and work my way back] but by the time we hit Santa Monica the traffic was against us and we only made it to 6 shops, not bad for one day's "crawling" I think. 

I have to be honest and say I was a bit disappointed in the some of the shops as I had thought that this was going to be a bit more of a celebration and tuned more towards the "crawlers" traveling by offering prizes, goodie bags, and munchies??? I know that the there are lots of chances to win during next week but I just thought the individual shops would offer a bit more "fluff" oh well...

We only found one shop that gave a goodie bag [Concepts in Yarn in Torrance]  and one shop [Alamitos Bay Yarn Co]that went all out with special parking,hugh yarn basket give away, and gave us our "crawler's" bags....all and all we had a grand time chatting and touching and feeling all those lovely yarns. :)
