I Love Yarn Day is October 12, 2012

If you love yarn then we have the perfect day planned for you! This is second annual I Love Yarn Day and to participate all you need is your yarn and maybe a couple of friends. You can do anything that involves yarn – knit, crochet, yarn tag, shop for yarn, etc. Celebrate in big and little ways with all your friends.

There are many designers that are involved with making patterns to inspire your creativity this day and everyday. Find inspiriation from Olek, Brett Bara, Vicki Howell, Kristen Omdahl, Debbie Stoller, Double Stitch Twins and many more!

Here are a few ideas to get involved and help celebrate.

  • Go shopping at your favorite yarn shop – you can never have too much yarn!
  • Wear your favorite knit or crocheted sweater or scarf to show your needlecrafting spirit.
  • Bring your knitting or crocheting to work. Share your love of yarn with all your co-workers and friends.

Visit the I Love Yarn Day web site for more ideas and information. They’ll be offering lots of excitement, including I Love Yarn Day gear. Any money generated from gear sales will be donated to the Warm Up America Foundation, a 501C3 charity that has been providing warm clothing and afghans to people in need for more than 20 years.
