The Hill Country Yarn Crawl returns for 7th year

Many knitters began counting down to this year's Hill Country Yarn Crawl as soon as the last installment closed. Now they can start their planning in earnest, as passports for the 2013 Crawl are now on sale at local yarn stores and online.

Over seven years, the Crawl has evolved and grown. While the spirit of the event, venturing across the heart of Texas to favorite local yarn stores and socializing with fellow fiber lovers, remains intact, several changes have been made in the format of this annual extravaganza. Just like Austin itself, the knitting community has grown, with more knitters, crocheters, spinners, weavers, needlepointers, and more stores to serve them. Logistics have become more complex as yarn stores hope to keep the event fun for all.

From the participating businesses to the goodies and transportation, knitters will want to know everything before planning their fiber pilgrimage. For details about this year's Crawl, view the list. Share your thoughts on the changes in the event's Ravelry group.
