Portland, Oregon, Yarn Crawl

The Portland Yarn Crawl is Friday, Saturday & Sunday, March 4th, 5th & 6th. I didn’t have my act together and didn’t make the deadline. But I will be open extended hours that weekend for those of you who would like to come by.

I’m not your typical Portland Yarn Store. Looks like a darn warehouse in my place! Yarn stacked from floor to ceiling. None the less, the fact remains, I got yarn and an extremely expansive stock of knitting and crochet tools.
I carry these lines of yarns, plus a couple more that I just picked up last month.

I’ve extended my hours for the Yarn Crawl Weekend. Friday and Saturday 10 - 6 and Sunday 10-5. I’m in a small plaza with free parking.

Angelika’s Yarn Store
Portland Center Plaza (contains a Plaid Pantry, Hot Pot City, Oregon Liquor Store and more)
1975 SW 1st Ave, Ste L (cross streets SW Harrison and SW Lincoln)
Portland, Oregon 97201

Stop in and tell me all about your crawl. I’ve never done one!!

I *can* crochet!

I don't do it much, but I *can* crochet.

I really admire those lacey, delicate crochet shells. The kind that is worn over a silk spagetti strap top.

This little bootie is a "free with purchase" pattern using Plymouth's 100% Angora. I have it in crochet and a knit version. Plymouth's 100% Angora is one of many brand new yarns in the store. You will get sneak previews of them as Henry and I get web pages created and uploaded.

This page isn't quite perfect. Henry is changing some of my pages from "tables" to "divs". Says it is better. It is still in progress. But I can't wait any longer, so I'm giving you a sneak preview.


PS: oh, by the way...FINALLY got the Cascade 220 Superwash page all up to date. SOOOOO many colors!!! Gheeeshe! What a job!
