I Love Yarn Day is coming!

I Love Yarn Day, which is always the 2nd Friday of October, falls on October 15, 2015.  How are you going to celebrate? Here’s some ideas if you need them:

  • Take your yarn/project to school or work
  • Crochet or Knit in public
  • Teach someone to crochet
  • Wear a knit or crochet piece
  • Give a yarn crafted gift
  • Display a yarn bomb on your property
  • Post about it - tweet about it - update your facebook!
  • Get a crochet/knit group together
  • Change your social media profile pictures to a handcrafted item
  • Visit a local yarn shop!
I've given up on enforcing my own yarn ban.

Ordering yarn from four different people/companies in the last three days, may or may not have had anything to do with this new development. lol.

In my defense, one of the orders was all yarn for my Men - for me to play with (make something from it for them).

I cannot wait for all my new pretties from Jimmy Beans Wool ( @jimmybeanswool ); WoolverineYarns ( @maidev ); MsMonsterCreations ( @msmonster ); and LoloDidIt (_lolodidit on instagram), to arrive.

Until then, all tracking numbers will be checked religiously, and I’ll be twitchy from new yarn withdrawals.

If only I could snag some more of @expressionfiberarts yarn; unfortunately, I think I’d be pushing my luck there.

A Day In The Life Of A Knitter...

1. You Get The Whole “Isn’t That For Old People?” Question….You’re reaction might be: 

2. “Can you knit that” You can’t but what the hell nothing ventured nothing gained right? 

3. Then there’s that one kill joy “You aren’t knitting that right and omg you dropped a stitch you’re horrible at this, you should totally do it this way- blah blah blah blah blah" 

4. Spotting Yarn that just makes you sigh…

5. Having to explain WHY you went over your Yarn Budget…That Malabrigo ain’t cheap huh? 

6. Having random people ask you to make stuff…..after they’ve teased you for knitting.
