One of the things we do every year is try to compile all of the blog posts that are written up about Great London Yarn Crawl and list them on the Media Shout-Outs section of the website both before and after the event. It's a nice recap of the day, and for future Yarn Crawlers we think it helps them see what kind of event it is and can help them decide if it's something that they want to participate in.
It's also a really great way to show our sponsors the London knitting community that we're celebrating, and for them to see how much the participants appreciate the treats that they donate for the goody bags, as well as the amazing after-party door prizes.
But on the day, Rachel and I have a blast watching it all unfold on Twitter and Instagram and share in that excitement while we're checking in with the shops and our volunteers. This year we wanted to find a way to capture that and hopefully we've done the next best thing by creating a Storify about the event.
It's been fun tonight seeing the day unfold all over again, and oggling people's stash acquisitions, so we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
And of course, if you want to really experience what it's like in person, why not join us for our road trip to the Bath Christmas Market? It's going to be an excellent, crafty time!
