Of course inquiring minds want to know, how many yards were on that huge gold cone at the Yarn Crawl last weekend??
A whopping 7,988 yards!!
Granted, this was a bit of a toughie, because the yarn on this cone is pure rayon, a remarkably heavy fiber when it's wound up this thick, which affects how many yards it yields per pound.
Astonishingly, out of hundreds of guesses that were turned in, the three closest winners all put exactly the same answer: 8,000. Nice work!!
So congratulations to Renate Yerkes, Given, and Jeanne Salt, our three winners, who get their pick of the three books that were generously donated to the prize pool: Modern Top-Down Knitting, Last Minute Knitted Gifts, and A Knitter's Home Companion.
And a big congrats as well to Susan Cackler, the winner of our truly spectacular raffle basket!
Thanks so much to everyone who came out to support the Portland Yarn Crawl last weekend; it was such an awesome mix of old familiar faces and brand new ones stopping in for the first time!
