Pub Knitting Report

Thanks to all who attended the Yarn Garden Pub Nite on Friday, February 19th and a big thank you to the staff at Barley Mill who kept the food coming and the pints full!

Friday was the first time we did a prize drawing and it was well received so we will make that a normal activity for each Pub gathering. Looking forward to seeing all of you coming to the shop with your coupon for a little St. Patty's "shopping for the green" adventure.

See you next month, March 19th 7-10pm at the Barley Mill.

Pub Knitting This Friday Feb. 19th!

Grab your knitting or crochet project and join us at the Barley Mill at SE 17th and Hawthorne, this Friday, February 19th from 7-10pm. Everyone attending will receive a ticket when they arrive for a drawing to be held at 9:30pm (must be present to win). RSVP via email at or 503-239-7950 by Thursday, February 18th so we have a head count.

"The Yarn Garden Staff knows Barley Mill is one of my favorite places. My sister, Linda, and I ate lunch there once a week for years and when I lived down the street, I would have dinner there three or four times a week. Several people have asked for my Barley Mill favorites so here they are: Hawthorne Chop Salad, Black & Tan Brownie (great for sharing; one desert, four or five spoons), Moroccan Coffee (my cold weather drink of choice), Ruby Ale, their Greyhound (best I have ever had) with vodka and fresh squeezed grapefruit juice, and of course the fantastic staff. - Jo "
