It’s the eve of this very special world-class event and Vancouver is welcoming the world to our beautiful corner of the world. We’ve even got a special edition colourway to celebrate it! Our special edition colourway called “Wetcoast Winter” celebrates the true vision of Vancouver in February… greens and blues! No, it’s not a typo! And why yes, it’s raining today in Vancouver.
You will be able to find Wetcoast Winter in Tough Love Sock, Superwash Sport, Superwash Worsted and CashSilk Lace at both Urban Yarns and Three Bags Full in Vancouver and also at Pick Up Sticks in Ontario. We even have it as dye-to-order until February 28, 2010 online here »
See what some people have knit up already with the Wetcoast Winter colourway: Julia at Crispy Noodle and her Luscious Lace, Alexa the Gourmet Crafter’s 5-Hour Baby Sweater (which, I think, you can see in person at Urban Yarns).
And how about an Olympic knitters meetup? Some of the knitters on Ravelry have been discussing how we might be able to get together with guests and visitors to Vancouver over the next 16 days. Want to join in the conversation? Visit Ravelry for the full discussion. I’m thinking we might be able to organize a brunch at The Whip Gallery & Restaurant on East 6th Avenue and Main Street in Vancouver on Saturday, February 20th and then walk over to the studio afterwards so that you guys can have a look at how the space has changed since we first opened. Again, nothing is confirmed yet, but I’d love to hear if you guys would be interested in getting together!
