I love yarn. And you love yarn. Otherwise, you wouldn’t be here now would you? Of course not. Well, what if i told you that there is an amazing contest going on right now – about how much you love yarn? You’d freak!
Here’s why: The Craft Yarn Council kicked off the I LOVE YARN DAY Facebook photo contest on September 28. You can submit a photo showing how much you LOVE yarn and you could win a year’s worth of yarn – 365 skeins in all, one for every day of the year!
Oh. My. Goodness. 365 skeins of yarn? And not just any yarn, but yarn from Lion Brand Yarn, Coats & Clark, and Spinrite. Some of the best yarn there is!
I wonder how many crochet afghans that would make. Or how many knitted sweaters. Or how many pairs of gloves. Just think of how AMAZING 365 skeins of yarn would be! Better have that craft room ready, because that is a heck of a lot of yarn to store.
There will be 10 finalists, and those finalists will recieve an I LOVE YARN DAY tote bag of prizes from Craft Yarn Council members. The bags have prizes valued at over $300 each. I bet those tote bags have some nifty yarn things in them.
To enter, submit entries by 11:59 p.m. EST on October 15, 2012. You can upload photos to the contest via Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook! If you enter from Twitter and Instagram, be sure to include the hashtag #ILoveYarnDay. Facebook entries will be accepted from the official contest page. After you post your photo, get your friends to vote for you! All votes must be in by 11:59 p.m. ET Oct. 29, 2012
To celebrate I love YARN DAY! you can knit or crochet one of these free project ideas from designers. These are all fun projects to make in a day to wear and show your love of the craft. Here is one project – a lovely I Heart Yarn Badge by Linda Perman. You can check out more of the I love YARN DAY! celebrations on the Craft Yarn Council page.
