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!
