It is once again time to gather all your knitting buddies together and join in the fun that is Shop Hop 2014. This year we have 7 shops participating and some new twists. Instead of a free pattern at each shop you will now be receiving a piece of instructions to our Shop Hop Shawl, called Hex-a-go-go, designed by Jenna from The Whole Nine Yarns. Visit each shop and collect them all for a beautiful design. There will be provisions made if you cannot get to every shop. You will be able to purchase your pattern pieces from Ravelry but there will be a nominal charge for it.
You can also double your chances of winning prizes by making a $25.00 purchase at each shop and getting a second set of stamps on an additional passport. Passports go on sale August 1st.
See www.shophopatlanta.blogspot.com for participating shops, hours and pictures of some of the prizes you can win. Hope to see you out hopping.
