I Love Yarn Day is technically a month out — Oct. 15 — but the people behind it (that’s the Craft Yarn Council, by the way) are starting the celebration early this year with a lot of fun content meant to inspire knitters, crocheters and other yarn crafters to Stitch it Forward, aka to teach a yarn craft to others.
Through the month leading up to I Love Yarn Day, they’ll be releasing conversations about yarn and design with some of our favorite designers and bloggers and they’re hosting a scavenger hunt where you can win some great prizes such as gift cards, interchangeable knitting needles, subscriptions to CreativeBug, subscriptions to magazines and more.
The contest runs from today through Oct. 23. Answer 21 questions for a chance to win.
You can also participate by using the hashtags #stitchitforward and #iloveyarnday on social media, or print out the I Love Yarn Because template (it’s a PDF) and share your answer on social.
Have you ever taken part in I Love Yarn Day? Who can you teach to knit or crochet this year? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
