Yarn Encore!

July 13th, 2009

A few weeks ago my friend Lynne passed through town on a visit, and brought along a big bag of yarn for me to post on Cluttercast.  As the first guest cluttercaster, Lynne’s yarn was a big hit with the winners—a group of women who knit blankets for wounded soldiers.

So how’s this for an encore?  Out of the blue, yesterday a box arrives at our house.  Inside is even MORE yarn than Lynne gave away last time—more skeins and balls than I could even count—gorgeous yarns worth hundreds of dollars.   What’s pictured here is just a tiny sample of the first batch. 

If you like to knit,  you just hit the jackpot.  Because the box full of yarn is almost—but not quite—as big as Lynne’s heart.  Thank you!!!


(first batch: various colors, acrylic and wool, more will be offered in future posts)

HOW TO WIN:  If you would like to have this item, please  let me know in a comment.   If you know someone else who might like it, I hope you’ll share this and let them know.

    Knitting keeps me sane! I would love to give this yarn a home. I knit or crochet squares that I assemble into blankets and we drop them off at womens’ shelters. Someone receives a warm ‘homey feeling’ blanket…and I can relax better! Thanks so much.

    I have made hats for the homeless and blankets for the Linus project (blankets for needy children.) I have made items for the local Crisis Preganancy Center. My husband is a teacher, so we can’t really afford my love for yarn and knitting and then giving the items away.

    What a wonderful lot of yarn. I would love to use this to make items for preemie babies or blankets of the underprivileged. Of course I maybe tempted to use some for one of my craft projects! One has to be honest – right.

    I love to crochet, but my budget is too tight right now to buy yarn, so this would be a blessing to win. Thanks!

    Great giveaway!! It will just keep on giving–such great posts here! I would use some of the yarn to start crocheting again for gifts and donations to charities as well. I’d also share with fellow knitters and crocheters! Thank you, and good luck to all.

    I have been knitting since I am 7 years old…my nana & mom taught me and I used to knit & crochet Barbie doll clothes. Right now, OPERATION GRATITUDE (www.opgratitude.com) is having a drive for folks to knit/crochet scarves for the brave men & women fighting in Afghanistan, and I would love to use the yarn to make & have others make as many as we can.

    Thank you!

    I would love to win this!! THREE of my very close friends have all announced their pregnancies in the last month… so I need to get busy knitting! Baby blankets, tiny hats galore… I also knit dog accessories for greyhounds in adoption programs (they’re skinny and bony, and get VERY chilly in winter). I hope I win!

    I belong to a group of ladies that originally started as a craft group for the simple joy of getting together to eat, visit and craft. This year, we’ve added craft days dedicated to knitting and crocheting for charity. We have made over a hundred scarves that are being used to raise funds for breast cancer, to donate to a woman’s battered shelter, to support a child advocacy group and my 80 year old mother is making hats for the war veterans! Last year she made 60 hats and this year has already made 95! She has also made hundreds of baby hats that have been donated to local hospitals. On behalf of our Crafty Ladies group, we would love to have this yarn to continue our charity work.

    I am a Program Coordinator at a secure treatment facility for adolescent girls in MA. One of the girls’ favorite activities is crocheting. It is not only very therapeutic, but allows them to make/give gifts to their family. I would be very interested in this type of offer! What a great website!!

    I’d love to win this, too! I’ve done a bit of charity knitting in the past, as well and I’d share the love with other people in my knitting group.

    My mother-in-law would love this! She crochet’s tiny beanies & sends them to the Marshall Islands for the babies that are born. Her husbands brother & sister-in-law are living there for a few years & they say the women LOVE receiving the beanies (as normally, they would go home with nothing….to the little that they have). She could certainly use this yarn.

    Wow…I just found this site today. Great concept!
    If you ever get any more good yarn, we have a “grannies to grannies” group who knit and sell items with all proceeds going to grannies in Africa who are bringing up their orphaned grandchildren, having lost their own children,the parents,to AIDS. If anyone can trash their yarn our way, we would be most appreciative.
