I’ve donated quite a few baby blankets to several local charities, including Balboa Naval & Children’s Hospitals. I’m working on scarves, shawls and baby blankets for holiday time, and will celebrate yarn day/week doing this.

  202. Teri Miller says:

    I don’t have the needed technology to show any pictures of things I’ve made, but even if I did – the things posted here take my breath away and I’m no where near as good! I taught myself by just trial and error. I’ve looked at a few beginner books and been able to understand some. I love to knit and crochet, crocheting is easier since I lost 60% of the use of my left hand in an accident. Luckily I’m right handed! Good luck to everyone, but I have to say I wish I could win!

  209. Linda Smallwood says:

    My photo is of the twenty-two ruffle scarves which I donated to a friend for her Lupus fundraiser. I laid them all out on our office chair and it was one full chair! I’ve probably made over a hundred scarves since mid December of 2012 and I have photographs of them all. I’ve also made a few other types of scarves but these are super quick and easy to make and I absolutely love making them! I give them to my friends. It seems that everybody wants to be my friend. I wonder why.

    I’m really enjoying these photographs and comments. Thanks go all who have shared.

    Yay!! I love yarn Day!!

  321. I started celebrating I Love Yarn Day on Oct 10 by making a bracelet, which I shared above :-). I wore my new bracelet, a crocheted vest and crocheted rose to work on I Love Yarn Day, and today I’ve been organizing my craft room and making wristers to match a hat design I made. Happy I Love Yarn Day!

  322. Jo Ann Zavala says:

  323. Pauline Cowie says:

    As always i bow to all the other folks and their wonderful pieces of work and I’m happy to say
    that they all inspire me to carry on with my love of crocheting :D

  324. I have a yarn and plastic canvas book cover i’d like to enter. Would that count for the contest?

  325. Kathryn M Smith says:

    My picture is no. 784 which is an afghan that I made for a friend who lives in Oklahoma and it gets really cold where she is, I wanted something that she could literally wrap up in and cuddle and watch television. I shipped it to her last month and she loves it. The beautiful Red Heart yarn washed in my washer on the wool cycle and I dried it on the same cycle. It is fluffy and looks beautiful. She loves it. I use my Red Heart yarn for all my projects, I actually have two dresser drawers of all colors so I can make something I see in a hurry.

  326. I love yarn!!! My photo above is #792. Today I was at a festival, where i sold my silly hats! I ran out of the yellow and purple minions! They loved them! It was pure joy watching those kids run around in my hats! I love yarn!!

    Boy do I ever need a craft room. Would love to have the pattern for the afghan Love you to the moon, I saw above. My e-mail is Ida_amstutz@yahoo.com , Thank you .

  329. Paula Girton says:

    I celebrated by buying new yarn for a new project I won’t get to start for a week or so. My favorite project is probably the blanket I made for my Grandma’s 80th Birthday. It was a rose or mauve and cream granny square, single crochet square patchwork type afghan. I’ll post a picture if I can figure out how. It was my first real project and I didn’t follow a pattern other than how to make the granny squares. She loved it… Me? It was ok.

  330. Entered my photo. I think I did it right :-)

    *Crosses fingers* This is an awesome prize, I really would LOVE to win.

  334. Woo hoo! Yarn Day! Something for my grandson who is due in less than a month, that’s what I’d make.

  335. Darlene Warne says:

    I’m working on crocheted dish rags for Christmas stocking gifts for the girls in my family. I think it is “love yarn day”, every day I can use yarn and thread and sew.
