Yes, I do love yarn, and I love fine mohair best of all. The Craft Yarn Council created this celebration to encourage crafters to stitch it forward by teaching someone to knit or crochet, and to celebrate the gift of yarn.
In my house, celebrations usually go on for more than one day, so I am having an I Love Yarn week. In addition to some other goodies I have in store for all of you this coming week, I am running a promotion in my Etsy shop. If you use the code ILOVEYARN2016, you can get 10% off your order, plus $5 shipping on each kit. The $5 shipping is only for domestic orders. Most I Love Yarn Day promotions only run for 24 hours, but in keeping with the theme of my week, this coupon will run until next Saturday, October 22. 🙂
These kits include all the yarn you need to make the shawl, plus the printed pattern in a sheet protector, naturally. This is the purest, top-quality mohair (which is very soft and lustrous, unlike cheap mohairs that are mixed with nylon), and you will have a beautiful heirloom piece to keep or give to someone special. And since treasured pieces need to be treated as such, I will wrap it in tissue and ship it priority mail. Some of the colors are selling out, so if you were considering a certain palette, this is a great opportunity to get it before it’s gone.
I hope you all have a great weekend, and a happy I Love Yarn Day. For some more fun, check out I Love Yarn Day Facebook Yarn Bomb.
