I Love Yarn Day!

I guess they have a day for everything now, but I admit , I love yarn so I am happy to celebrate it. I discovered yarn at an early age and I admit I can spend hours looking at it , touching it and dreaming about how to use it. Last year  a friend and I went to the Southeastern Animal Fiber Fair. We spent an entire day looking at fibers from the live animals to finished yarn and woven, and knitted projects. This show will be near Asheville, NC again this month Oct.26,27,28. They have numerous specialists there to teach people everything from dyeing , to weaving , to the needle arts. I hope to go enjoy it again.

Today was also the day I finally got it in gear and photographed more than 20 items I have been knitting and crocheting for the past few months while healing. These pics are crossing cyberspace as I type this and when they arrive  I will spend several hours listing them on my ETSY shop.

To honor Cancer Awareness Month I am making a treasury each day and posting it. My aim is to remind people to get their appropriate tests and support research and support groups. One of the treasuries is made up completely of items created by survivors and patients.

Click on a few of these treasuries . You may find a holiday gift you can strike off your list early.

I also cooked/baked for my foodie friend in Texas today. It was fun but I am finding packing and shipping to be the hard part. Remember I will be revealing both what I am sending and what I receive on Oct.31.

As this "I Love Yarn Day " comes to a close I intend to spend some time crocheting or knitting.
