It’s that time of year again! October kicks off the holiday season, and it starts with one of our favorite holidays: I Love Yarn Day! A few years back, the lovely people at the Craft Yarn Council declared that the second Friday of every October would be I Love Yarn Day.
Whether you knit, crochet, or are an all-around fiber enthusiast, this is the holiday when you can shout your love of fiber from the mountain tops! Obviously, us here at AllFreeCrochet, AllFreeKnitting, and AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns have a passionate and all-consuming love for yarn, and we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than with all you other yarnies!
This year, I Love Yarn Day lands on October 10th, and like last year we’re going to be celebrating with a week of daily giveaways and free patterns from companies like Red Heart, Lion Brand, and Spin Rite.
Starting tomorrow, we’ll unveil a new pattern and prize from these amazing companies, all of which lead up to I Love Yarn Day. We’re talking free patterns and skeins upon skeins of yarn, all up for grabs! On top of all this, we’re having a grand prize giveaway! Wouldn’t you like to win all of the items in the picture below?
Make sure to visit Stitch and Unwind everyday this week to discover new patterns and enter to win fantastic prizes.
As if all of this was not enough, we’re bringing our love of yarn to Facebook and Google Plus! Check out AllFreeCrochet, AllFreeKnitting, and AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns Facebook Pages for mini-contests, and join Maria Segares on October 9th for a special Google Hangout!
Happy I Love Yarn Day, fiber enthusiasts!
