October 11th is the perfect time to get-together with friends to celebrate crochet, knitting and crafting with yarn. Plan a special activity:
Start a CAL (crochet along) or KAL (knit along) project on ILYD
Here’s all you have to do. Select a project and yarn type. You’ll be surprised how the different yarn colors and techniques will change the finished project completely. Also, you can share tips and techniques as the project progresses. CAL and KAL throughout the fall and winter months but set a deadline for finishing.
Plan a group yarn bomb!
Whether it’s to decorate a neighborhood eyesore or to create street art, covering objects with crocheted and knitted fabric is a rewarding group project and a great way to make a statement on ILYD. Here are links to some of our favorite yarn bombings:
Yarn bomb favorites/suggestions:
Yarn is knowledge
Is there an experienced knitter/crocheter whose work you admire? Consider asking her/him to teach you and your friends a technique on ILYD, such as tips on joining seams or basic color work.
Get a group of friends together and go shopping at your local yarn shop (LYS) and craft stores. Start a project together with your new yarn and cap off the evening with a yarn-themed party!
