Preemie Hat Update

Abigail, from Girl Scout Troup 1640, stopped by the shop last Thursday for Knit Nite to give us an update on their Preemie Hat Project. So far they have collected 94 hats from The Naked Sheep Knit Shop, and I know that we can get it above 100 by the April 4 deadline!

Thanks to all who have participated! I will give you the final count early in April. Keep on knitting!

Scavenger Hunt

Just 2 days until the Portland Yarn Crawl! Part of the festivities for the weekend will be a Scavenger Hunt. The theme of the Scavenger Hunt is “Hat’s off to Portland’s Knitting Designers.” As you visit each store, be on the lookout for a handknit hat with a numbered tag. The first two people to email with the name of the designer, store name and item number for all 16 shops will win kits from Blue Sky Alpacas. Good Luck!

I've designed a hat for The Naked Sheep Knit Shop using The Naked Sheep Colorway from StitchJones Dyepot Worsted and Venezia Worsted from Cascade Yarns.

See you this weekend!
