I Love Yarn Day? What?!

I just learned that today is I Love Yarn Day. What???? How could I have not known about this day until now? I suppose it’s possible they just created it this year . . . ?

Whatever, I decided the best way for me to celebrate the day was to post pictures of the best yarn pics I could find. So here they are. Enjoy, my yarn-loving friends!

Carolyn has worked with animals for most of her life (prepare yourself, the list is long): cats, dogs, horses, cows, goats, sheep, rabbits, turkeys, ducks, chickens, guineas, and geese. She was married to a cowboy for twenty-five years and during that time lived on seven different cattle ranches. She learned how to give shots to cattle, brand cattle, castrate bull calves and close the head catch in time to capture the beast that was flying through the working chute like a streak of lightning. She also learned to back the truck up to the trailer hitch and get it right the first time. When a teen, she attended horsemanship clinics and schools, and competed in horse shows that included dressage and jumping. She owned and trained seven of her own horses. After having two children, both of whom she homeschooled until they passed the SAT with flying colors (which is absolutely no credit to her as they both reside in the genius category and continually leave her wondering what the heck is going on) she dove into homesteading, learning how to make her own bread, make soup stock from scratch, butcher chickens, rabbits, goats, sheep, and cows, and one year had so much fun canning everything in sight that when she counted the full glass jars in the pantry, she was shocked to discover there were over a thousand. Her knowledge of settings used as the basis of her stories is diverse due to the fact that she has lived in many different states including Idaho, Montana, California, Texas, Missouri, Virginia, Indiana, New Jersey, Washington, and Arizona. She now resides near Seattle. Her hobbies include knitting, crocheting, soap making, and, of course, writing. Oh, and her favorite author? P. G. Wodehouse.

  1. Lots of pretty yarn and some yarn bombing! That’s definitely a great way to celebrate this fabulous day. I did a little investigating and the celebration was started by the Craft Yarn Council in 2011, and it is observed on the second Saturday in October.

      1. No problem! Hahaha, I’m kind of the same. I had the same question in my head and ignored it, but because you were wondering about it, I actually made the effort to find an answer. I won’t do it for myself, but I will for someone else 🤣
