As we all know, Valentine’s Day is this coming Sunday. It’s a holiday that’s become associated with so many things – romance if you’re in a relationship, bitterness if you’re single, and chocolate no matter what your relationship status (hopefully!) It’s also a holiday that gets a lot of hate – after all, shouldn’t you appreciate your significant other every day of the year? It seems like an excuse for companies to capitalize on the power of love!
This year, we at Stitch and Unwind wanted to bring a little more meaning to Valentine’s Day than just roses and conversation hearts. All week, we’re encouraging you to #StitchWithLove and see how you can make a difference through knitting and crochet! We’ll be bringing you all the info on yarn-related charities, organizations to support, and ways that you can show you care through your craft (all while bringing you plenty of free patterns, of course!)
If you end up working up any of these fun projects, share a picture with us on social media by tagging #StitchWithLove – we’d love to see what you come up with! The schedule of posts is as follows:
Day 1: #StitchWithLove: Spread the Love with Knitting and Crochet + GIVEAWAY!
Day 2: #StitchWithLove: 16 V-Day Gifts for Gals
Day 3: #StitchWithLove: Prayer Shawls for a Cause
Day 4: #StitchWithLove: Empowerment through Knitting and Crochet
Day 5: #StitchWithLove: Charity Afghan Pattern
In addition to all of these love-ly posts (get it?) you also have the chance to win this amazing prize pack: three skeins of Red Heart With Love yarn and a copy of Mochi-Mochi Land by Anna Hrachovec!
This giveaway has ended! Congratulations to our winner, Deb Rowley!
Who in your life are you thankful for this Valentine’s Day?
