Are you ready for Bernat Yarn Madness? I’m looking forward to seeing what’s in store for us. I’m gonna be cheering for Bernat Mosaic, Softee Baby, and Handicrafter Cotton. They are my favorites from the competing yarns on the grid. Which ones do you want to win? I might have to go to my local craft store to buy supplies to make my own foam finger, so I can cheer like the pros. Until then, this will have to do.
Our Temperature Scarf knit-along/crochet-along is live! You’ll see the latest project photos in the March Discussion thread in the Bernat Forums. It’s not too late to join the fun! Some of us are using daily temperatures for the entire year, starting on Jan 1st, 2013, by looking online for historical weather. Some knitters and crocheters are using the weather from the year they were born, or the year of a special anniversary. Others have chosen to use the weather for a part of the world they WISH they lived in. ;) There are so many ways to be creative with this project!
Last week, I shared a report about some charity knitters and crocheters in my area, and some of you told us about your favorite charity to craft for as well. It is always so satisfying to create something special, and KNOW that it will be appreciated. If you have never knitted or crocheted for charity before, you can search on the BernatCares page, to find a charity in your area that NEEDS your time and effort. Just go to this page, and check the boxes that apply, to get started.
