It turns out the rumors are true—the Patternworks shop is indeed haunted! After years of hearing reports of strange occurrences, such as balls of yarn flying off of shelves by themselves (and we’re not talking about the summer sale here) and sightings of spooky shadows, our photography team has obtained concrete evidence of the existence of the Patternworks shop ghosts. It took many attempts, but these haunted souls have finally revealed themselves!
Below, we present to you the proof. Now it’s your turn to do the investigating. We want to know what you think the backstory of these haunted souls is. What dire events cause them to linger here after death? What is their connection to the Patternworks shop, located in Senter’s Marketplace (named for the Senter family, who were owners of a large amount of property in this area beginning in the 1700′s).
There’s no way to know for sure what the true story is, so all ideas are welcome! Leave your explanation as a blog comment by 7:30 AM EST on Thursday, November 1st. We’ll hold a company-wide vote to see which tale our employees find the most compelling, and the winner will receive our Three Kit Grab Bag #4, which includes the yarn and patterns for a pair of women’s brioche cabled socks, a baby sweater, and three pairs of baby booties.
