October 9th – I Love Yarn Day

It’s the second Saturday in October and time to celebrate yarn! It deserves a day – because, well, what can’t we do with yarn! We can craft with it, tie up packages, make ponytails, and create sweaters, booties, and hats. It is very versatile and can come in an array of colors. If you don’t see the color you want, you can always dye it to be any color in the rainbow. Wikipedia’s definition of yarn reads like it was taken straight from a patent…”Yarn is a long continuous length of interlocked fibers, suitable for use in the production of textiles, sewing, crocheting, knitting, weaving, embroidery, or ropemaking.” And did you know that thread is actually a type of yarn.

How to celebrate – Learn how to knit or crochet. Make a picture by gluing pieces of yarn on poster board (also called yarn bombing), practice tying bows to be prepared for your holiday packages.
