Each year, we choose a painting from a Hoosier artist to serve as the inspiration for our special edition yarn. This year, we commissioned a piece from Columbus artist Susie Gregory!

"The Kiss"- Roving Indiana 2020 inspiration painting

You will find Susie Gregory’s art in galleries & shops in Columbus, Bloomington, Valparaiso, & St. Simon's Island, GA. Her work has been displayed at the Indiana State Museum, the Governor’s Mansion, and in corporate and private collections
throughout the US, Canada, Great Britain, Costa Rica and Australia.

Susie began drawing and painting as a child. She works in watercolor, pastel, mixed media and oil, drawing inspiration from her surroundings whether she is in the hills of southern Indiana or the marshland of southern Georgia. She and her husband, David, have 3 grown children, 5 grandchildren and 2 golden retrievers. They provide many painting opportunities!

Susie painted “The Kiss” for this year’s yarn crawl! Prints will be available for purchase at some of the shops and on Susie’s website.

Check out this year's yarn, inspired by Susie's painting!

Anticipating the Yarn Crawl!

A little planning goes a long way!  We are full of ideas and suggestions!

  1. Have you made a passport pouch yet?  Click it and make it if you didn't--it is a handy way to carry your passport and validation form.
  2. Look through your pattern "queue" print out patterns that you want to find yarn for, then when you buy the yarn at one of the shops, drop the pattern in the bag.
  3. Save $1 dollar bills or $5 dollar bills (or both) for some spending capital!
  4. Plan a yarn crawl project--using a skein from each shop, check out the ideas page!
