The Craft Yarn Council has declared October 14 I Love Yarn day! Not one to miss a celebration, especially one involving yarn, today’s post is in honor of fibery goodness.

My yarn of the day is Madelinetosh 80/10/10 Lace, a luscious Merino Cashmere Nylon laceweight, in what is probably my all-time favorite colorway, Composition Book Grey.


Light and airy, yet with an element of luxury; and at 650 yards, just the thing for a laceweight Lumina.

The Craft Yarn Council suggests:

Show it off, tag with it, carry it, gather with friends. Declare your LOVE! Get involved.

  • Create an I Love Day Yarn badge
  • Teach someone to knit or crochet
  • Do something for charity
  • Wear a knitted or crocheted item
  • Give a gift of yarn
  • Take your yarn to work day
  • Host a yarn-a-bration party
  • Knit, crochet and craft in public

Although they dont mention “Buy Yarn,” that’s exactly what I intend to do tomorrow at Rhinebeck, thus extending my own personal celebration.

Yarn – what’s not to love? Happy I Love Yarn Day!
