We’d like to thank everyone who made it out to the first annual NYC Yarn Crawl! Thanks to you it was a smashing success! It was so much fun to see old friends and meet new friends too. It’s truly inspiring to see all of the enthusiastic knitters out there – people of all ages from all around the world! We feel so lucky to have such vibrant and creative customers.
One of the most exciting parts of the Crawl at Purl were our raffles! We gave away some great prizes to some great folks. Here is a list of the winners and what they won (they’ve been notified and are all very excited!)… drum roll please…..
