Celebrate I Love Yarn Day!!!!


This Friday and every October 11th, we celebrate- I LOVE YARN DAY. Today is the day to show your passion for yarn. There are many ways to share your love of yarn.

1. You could crochet a small gift for someone.

2. You could crochet something for charities.

3. You could take the time to teach someone else the wonderful world of crocheting. Have your first lesson on Friday.

4. Crochet in a public area – a park, senior home or a library etc.

5. Take your project to work and crochet while your eat your lunch.

6. Post on Facebook something your have just finished or are in the middle of working on.

7. Get together with someone else that loves to crochet as much as you do.

8. Buy a new yarn that you have always wanted to try. There are so many different yarns to try today.

9. Wear something that you crocheted, displaying the wonderful things you can do with yarn.

I would love to hear what you are doing to celebrate I LOVE YARN day. My husband needs a coaster for his coffee when he works at his desk. To celebrate I will be surprising him with a much need coaster for his morning coffee that I plan on making him. In addition to this, I plan on wearing a scarf I recently crocheted.  

Until next time, keep those hooks flying.


About crochetwithpassion

I have been certified through the Craft Yarn Council both in teaching and Instructor. I also have been teaching people to crochet for over fifteen years. This is what I will be doing through this blog. In the Crochet Master Class there are 18 projects. Some of the projects will be familiar to me such as Hairpin Lace; Tunisian Crochet; Filet Crochet; Double Ended Crochet; painted Crochet; Aran Crochet and Irish Crochet. However there are several in the book that are new and have peaked my interest and that includes the following: Woven Crochet; Tapestry Crochet; Entrelac Crochet; Fashion Crochet; Tassels; Bullion Stitch; Overlay Crochet; Bead Crochet; Bruges Crochet; Free-form crochet and Wire Crochet. Since Crocheting is a time consuming craft I will only be posting once a week. If you are like me and love to crochet but would really like to challenge yourself to go beyond what you are now doing, come along with me and move to the next level. Although the actual patterns will not be posted (copyright law) I will take you through each project and go through the process of each one. This is not a blog about free crochet patterns or selling crochet tools. What I would like to do is take you with me on the journey through this book as I learn and crochet each of 18 projects. I will attempt to crochet each project in the book, and in the process recording in detail my progress and the problems I encounter along the way and the process I went through to accomplish each project. I am hoping that you will not only learn from my experience but that it will inspire you to push yourself to the next phase in your crocheting skills. Until next time; keep those hooks flying.

    I didn’t know there was an I love yarn day. I have a pretty good size stash of yarn and usually crochet when I am waiting for appointments or when we are traveling and my husband is driving. I almost always have at least one crochet project going, or some other type of craft using yarn.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Oh, I always seem to be celebrating I Love Yarn Day, lol. I will be crocheting on the train on the way to work, working on Christmas presents, and perhaps working on test pattern I have.

  4. I am so excited that you are Participating today. Wear that special crochet item then get out you yarn, get out your hooks and have a wonderful day.
