Got Craft? is next weekend and you can to find goodies from local authors/designers/sisters Pip'n'Pin (AKA Megan and Katie) there! Both of their new books, Strand and This Must be the Place will be there as well as knitting needles and notions.
I have Strand and love it for its beautiful projects, clear illustrations and stunning photography. A knitting book for all levels of knitting, it has beginner knitting illustrations for those of you who are a complete novice, and features patterns and ideas about how to combine different yarns, knitting them together in a joined strand, to create bulkier and more dynamic yarns.
Go see Megan and so many other awesome local vendors at Got Craft next weekend:

Welcome to the Vancouver Yarn blog! This space exists to celebrate and spread the word about all events, new local patterns, products and businesses.
Submit the details of an event or new locally designed knitting/crochet pattern, or other local DIY news and I'll post about it here. Thank you! ~Janna Vallee

I created Vancouver Yarn in 2008 as a space to hold as much of the textile awesomeness that I could find in and around Vancouver. Here on the VY blog I mostly share about local events, pattern releases as well as share Community Highlights.
