  5. Mary Meachum says

    I made this fantastic afghan several years ago and it is still my favorite of the many I have made over the years. Right now I am working on the Faeries-Sampler Baby Afghan by Elizabeth Moreno. It is a wonderful explosion of color and design.

  6. Mary Meachum says

    I made this beautiful afghan several years ago and it is still my favorite of the many afghans I have made over the years. It is the Quilt Motif Crochet Afghan (Item #1255A) from Lion Brand Yarn. Right now I am working on the Faeries-Sampler Baby Afghan (by Elizabeth Moreno, (c) Bizzy Crochet 2012). It is a wonderful explosion of color and design. I am looking forward to finishing it to give to a new mother for her new baby.

  7. Elizabeth Busch says

    Yarn is the best for crocheting afghans, I am going to start my granddaughter on her for time to crochet a chain just like my mother did at the same age of 6.

  8. Linda Dennis says

    I’ll Celebrate I Love Yarn. I have crochet six hat for winter for my grand children. I have also crochet them mittens. I Love Yarn,

  9. says

    I have many different “favorite” patterns and it was hard to choose just one, so I settled on the pattern that I have made the most often. I have made 30 or more, most often as gifts for new babies, and some for lapghans. I started crocheting when I was 7, taught by my grandmother. At the age of 28 I taught myself to knit.

  10. Marilyn Forsyth says

    I am now knitting Christmas gifts for friends to start with. I am now doing cowls and fingerless gloves for four ladies that I have been to Bible Study with. I will Celebrate I Love Yarn with you guys.

  11. Gwen Druckrey says

    I posted a picture of a blanket I made for my son. Last year I made 16 blankets for my adult kids and had a bunch of skein ends, so I used a Tunisian stitch and made this blanket out of all the left overs.

  12. Micki Ireland says

    These Christmas Stockings were made for my son and his fiance. I will celebrate “I Love Yarn” by making more baby blankets and booties.

  13. Amy Kulesza says

  15. Andrea Quintero says

    One of my all time favorites is the corner to corner pattern. Love to make it and is super easy. It makes blankets so warm and cozy.

  16. Theresa Aldridge says

    I drive a school bus but in between hours I sit in my car and crochet. Working on an afghan and Barbie doll dress.

  17. Carol says

  19. Sadie Perez says

    I am new to crochet. I have been crocheting now for about five months and I can’t get enough! ๐Ÿ™‚ I find websites like these very encouraging since I am teaching myself how to crochet and have no one to ask when I don’t understand a pattern. I love the photos shown here. they are a great inspiration. I decided to crochet scarves for a local women and children home less shelter . I’m 12 down! would love to post pics but don’t know how. wish me luck! ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. Lori J. Thorne says

    I’m celebrating I Love Yarn Day by working on another slouchy beanie for my daughter! She really loves to wear them in all sorts of colors! ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. Roxie Lewis says

    I’m almost done crocheting a Red Heart > Rose Parfait scarf in which I am going to ” pay-it-forward ” as a gift giveaway. It’s also Breast Cancer Awareness month – so that will be a nifty item for someone to give to a friend, raffle it off, wear in memory of, etc … That’s how I will celebrate ” I Love Yarn Day ” ….. not only today – but, on numerous days!

  22. marie says

  24. Cheryl R says

    On I Love Yarn Day, I’ll be knitting socks to help fight the cold, harsh winter we’re supposed to get.

  25. says

    I seem to have too many friends diagnosed with cancer lately. This hat has been a hit with each of them and provides lots of nice conversations when people compliment them on the caps.

  26. Andrea Craig says

    I have enjoyed rediscovering the love of knitting this year. Taught myself as a teenager and did a few things over the year. Someone donated a huge amount of yarn to the church and I have spent the year making things for charity……learning all sorts of new stitches and techniques.

  27. Michelle McCrillis says

    I celebrate “I Love Yarn Day” every day when I knit, crochet or spin. I’m working on socks and a sweater at the moment.

  28. Neva Beaver says

  29. Cathy Durbin says

    I’ll be celebrating “I Love Yarn Day” by finishing up my first attempt at a complex cable scarf I’ve been working on. I love to learn new techniques and trying out new yarns and textures. I love it when they all come together in a very unique way.

    I am celebrating “I Love Yarn Day” by working on an Entrelac wrap for a Christmas present for my Mom! Among other UFO`s. LOL I am going to try some little Christmas stocking, tree decorations.

  31. Neva Beaver says

    OK, it was the right one this time. #86, Chris Godwin, I LOVE it. One of the cutest dolls I’ve ever seen.

  32. Karen York says

    I learned to crochet from my left-handed mother-in-law, who only has the use of her left arm/hand. I sat across from her, and what she did with her left hand, I did wih my right, a mirror image sort of thing. She started me off with knitting, then crochet, to be honest, fourty-two years ago. I’ve donated quite a few baby blankets to several local charities, including Balboa Naval & Children’s Hospitals. I’m working on scarves, shawls and baby blankets for holiday time, and will celebrate yarn day/week doing this.

  33. Ann says

    I like making hats as they are simple, easy to take on the bus and then donate them to our local domestic violence shelter…shawls work also…have too many wip’s:) I love yarn every day!

  34. Lois says

    I Love Yarn Day is every day at my house!! I knit most every day of every week and have many projects going at present, AG doll clothes, Minion Hat, Sweater, Fingerless Mitts and just finished a skirt with Sashay Yarn!

  35. Sandi Schultz says

    I have been in knitting mode for the past few weeks as I get ready for the holidays by knitting up some gifts for family. I will be spending I Love Yarn Day finishing up some projects that have been neglected. =)

  36. Dawn says

    Ugh! Uploaded a photo but it is upside down. Anyhow, I’m knitting a Christmas stocking for my new grand bay and then stockings for his mom and dad!

  42. Margaret Cleland says

    I am a true Yarnholic. I can’t get enough, always searching for new colors, new patterns, new types, what can I do with it love to try to be different from the norm. Never enough time in a day, why do we have to sleep when we can be constructing with yarn?

  43. Marsha Gaillard says

    I made myself an agreement not to buy any new yarn til I’ve finished ALL the yarn I currently have. Thankfully a new first granddaughter helped use up alot with blankets, booties, headbands and dresses. Still having yarn left over, I had that much, I just found out a wonderful Sister at church is expecting their first little girl so I’m back to making more of my favorite crochet patterns and trying a few new ones.

  44. Marybeth P. says

    I have been knitting for 48 years and crocheting for 27. i knit or crochet 12 to 16 hours a day, every day. It’s my passion in life.

  45. says

    I Love to crochet and want to try knitting again sometime. I have just finished crocheting baby items for a friend, in the process of crocheting an appliqued princess throw for my granddaughter and have lots more to work on after that. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  46. H. DArling says

    I celebrate “I Love Yarn Day” every day! Above is the NY Giants blanket that I made to fit our queen size bed. My current project is a blanket for our new grandson who is due in January! I feel totally lost without a hook and yarn in my hands. Went through withdrawals once when I ran out of yarn!!!! THAT will NEVER happen again!

  47. Pam Wells says

    Love to crochet! (I accidentally uploaded my photo 3X – sorry about that. Not sure how that happened. Please delete 2 of them. Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚
    For years I did very basic simple afghans and I am now (in my 50’s) learning new things. Having fun experimenting and trying all the wonderful patterns available on-line!

  48. jennifer says

  49. karen boivin says

    I’ll keep on knitting infant hats for my local hospital. I’ve been doing this for a couple years and still haven’t used up my stash of baby yarn, I think it’s multiplying.

  50. Linda Beasley says

    I have been crocheting since I was a teen and I am now 50. I love crocheting things for my family and now my grandbabies. I also crochet items for friends of mine for their babies. I just love working with yarn and I keep busy at it. Trying to crochet gifts for this years Christmas.

  51. P Suzette Orr says

    I have just started classes to improve my knitting skills – I have been mostly crocheting for the last 30 years. Right now I’m working on a reading shawl for my mom for Christmas, but my basement is full of patterns and projects. Now that I’m retired I intend to keep busy stitching. ๐Ÿ™‚

  52. Amy Tandon says

    This is my first EVER attempt at crochet! I am in my 2nd week of learning, and I REALLY could use free stuff to kick off my efforts!

    I do not see anything (on iPad) about posting my photo.

  53. Gwen Hernley says

    I will celebrate “I love yarn day”, by making Christmas gifts for family! I love crocheting and knitting! I love yarn! I even dream about yarn, lol! Most importantly, I love making things for my family!

  56. says

    Just FYI … I tried to upload the picture of my crocheted hammock last night via my phone but got no message saying it had been uploaded, so I thought maybe it was a slow connection so the process had been stalled, so I tried uploading it again and the same thing happened. So I thought it hadn’t been uploaded and just came here today via my computer … to find that it had been uploaded twice, lol! Whoops! You might want to look into that.

    Anyway … being an avid crocheter, I also love yarn! And because I have a job where I work on the phone, I’m able to crochet while at work, which is more than a little bit awesome. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  57. Robin Ludwig says

    I’ll be celebrating “I Love Yarn Day” by bringing my knitting with me to visit my MIL in the rehab facility where she is staying. Hope I can start a new project. I’m almost finished with my daughter’s cowl.

  58. Betty says

    I love making lace shawls, sock, chemo hats…just about anything knitted!! Right now my daughter and I are making minion hats for my grandson’s 2nd grade class!!

    I have been crocheting since 4-H a very long time ago, but I started knitting about 2 months ago and I love it. I have finished 2 1/2 scarfs. I have 3 1/2 to finish before Christmas. It would be great to win some yarn, because I already have people asking for other things.

  92. Billy Lanier says

    I am a 68 year old man who has been crocheting over 40 years. I always have at least 2 projects going at one time. The picture (no. 471) is a cleric stole I made for my Pastor.

  93. Connie King says

  94. Rebecca D. says

    I don’t have a link? I have photos of my work but I don’t know how to put it up here.
    Maybe you are only giving away to people with a link?

  95. Theresa says

    Right now I am crocheting pumpkin treat holders, then need to make some poinsettia tealight holders for Christmas gifts.

I won first place and Best of Show with her hummingbird doily pattern at the fair this summer.

  101. says

  102. Mary Jane says

    This is my DD modeling a sweater I made for a her friends sweet 16 birthday, the friend is 20lbs heavier and 4 inches taller than DD, that is why she is swimming int. I love to knit and crochet, too much, I am recovering from knitters elbow for a few more weeks then it is off again. LOL

  103. Corine St. Jean says

    I’m currently working on a tablecloth made mostly of scrap dishcloth cotton, a bunch of squares sewn together, no pattern. I don’t usually follow patterns like my entry #447, shawl, no pattern, made with #10 crochet thread and 6878 beads.

  104. Teri Miller says

    I don’t have the needed technology to show any pictures of things I’ve made, but even if I did – the things posted here take my breath away and I’m no where near as good! I taught myself by just trial and error. I’ve looked at a few beginner books and been able to understand some. I love to knit and crochet, crocheting is easier since I lost 60% of the use of my left hand in an accident. Luckily I’m right handed! Good luck to everyone, but I have to say I wish I could win!

  105. Hollyann Phillips says

    I love yarn! I am making crochet projects for all my family members. I am also crocheting scarfs and afghans to go in to the food bank I run and started to help those in stay warm this season.

  106. Connie Hendricks says

    I so totally wish I knew how to post pictures to the site because I would love to win this, If it helps, I’m on the final row of a Lady Eleanor Entralac Shawl done in Noro Silk Garden & it is beautiful.

  107. says

    I can not say I have a favorite pattern since I am new to the fiber world and have only made 39 projects according to my Ravelry page ๐Ÿ™‚ I do love my current wips though. I am knitting the Honey Cowl and Easy Folded Poncho and crocheting the Alfo Monster from freshstitches..

  108. Renee says

    I love to crochet. It is my favorite craft. My mother taught me how to crochet when I was a little girl. I have been working on this crocheted bedspread for several years now. It is almost finished. I, like everyone else, would love to win.

  109. Linda Smallwood says

    My photo is of the twenty-two ruffle scarves which I donated to a friend for her Lupus fundraiser. I laid them all out on our office chair and it was one full chair! I’ve probably made over a hundred scarves since mid December of 2012 and I have photographs of them all. I’ve also made a few other types of scarves but these are super quick and easy to make and I absolutely love making them! I give them to my friends. It seems that everybody wants to be my friend. I wonder why.

    I’m really enjoying these photographs and comments. Thanks go all who have shared.

  110. Carolyn F says

    I love crocheting. I am always making something. I love yarn so much that I told my children to give me boxes of yarn for Christmas when they ask what I want. I usually give away most of the things I make. I love making baby clothes and hats. I also like experimenting with afghan patterns. Can’t get any pictures to up load but I LOVE YARN !!!!

Have to make a scrap yarn project one day to use up the scraps and single skeins of certain color yarns.

    This Fan Afghan is one of my favorites to crochet. It was fun to do because of the various colors of the fans. Also, because there were many pieces to join together it kept my interest, I found it hard to put down my work until I was finished. It recieves many โ€œoooos and aaaahsโ€ when I have visitors.

    I started celebrating I Love Yarn Day on Oct 10 by making a bracelet, which I shared above :-). I wore my new bracelet, a crocheted vest and crocheted rose to work on I Love Yarn Day, and today I’ve been organizing my craft room and making wristers to match a hat design I made. Happy I Love Yarn Day!

    that they all inspire me to carry on with my love of crocheting ๐Ÿ˜€

  155. Kathryn M Smith says

    My picture is no. 784 which is an afghan that I made for a friend who lives in Oklahoma and it gets really cold where she is, I wanted something that she could literally wrap up in and cuddle and watch television. I shipped it to her last month and she loves it. The beautiful Red Heart yarn washed in my washer on the wool cycle and I dried it on the same cycle. It is fluffy and looks beautiful. She loves it. I use my Red Heart yarn for all my projects, I actually have two dresser drawers of all colors so I can make something I see in a hurry.

  156. says

    I love yarn!!! My photo above is #792. Today I was at a festival, where i sold my silly hats! I ran out of the yellow and purple minions! They loved them! It was pure joy watching those kids run around in my hats! I love yarn!!

  157. Paula Girton says

    I celebrated by buying new yarn for a new project I won’t get to start for a week or so. My favorite project is probably the blanket I made for my Grandma’s 80th Birthday. It was a rose or mauve and cream granny square, single crochet square patchwork type afghan. I’ll post a picture if I can figure out how. It was my first real project and I didn’t follow a pattern other than how to make the granny squares. She loved it… Me? It was ok.

  158. Joy H says

    Entered my photo. I think I did it right ๐Ÿ™‚
