Grab a hot dog, put on your party hat, and maybe lather on the sunscreen while you’re at it. It’s finally July, yarnies! If you are anything like me, you are all about that summer heat. That’s why Fourth of July can be one of the most fun holidays in my mind.
I don’t know about you, but we have a big farm where the whole family gets together, eats a lot of food, shoots off some fireworks, and throws around some cornhole or horseshoes for the entire weekend. The men play golf, the women cook and chat – it all works out for the best on this super fun summer holiday weekend. This year, think about incorporating some of your knit or crochet skills into your holiday. Most companies give their employees the day off on Friday, so think about picking up a project to work on before the fireworks start.
There are also a lot of great events happening all over the country this month. Everyone is finding their own ways to celebrate by hosting big fiber festivals and yarn events. It would be really awesome to get to go to any of these and share your yarn experiences with people who care about it just as much as you do. Make sure to let us know if your vacation this summer includes any of these events, and definitely comment to us if we missed one. There are so many going on all the time it gets hard to keep up!
Have a great summer and let us know where you’re headed!
