Yarn Giveaway December 2014

Yarn Giveaway December 2014

Yarn Giveaway December 2014LoomaHat.com is giving away 3 Skeins of a very, very special version of Premier Yarns Ever Soft for Yarn Giveaway December 2014. I’m excited about this one. It’s Yarn on a Mission !

Premier Yarns has partnered with one of the worlds largest humanitarian organizations to help collect 100,000 handmade items. According to the Premier Yarn Website :A portion of each purchase of Premier Ever Soft yarn goes to benefit Knit For Kids and their mission to provide warmth, hope, and joy to children living in poverty across the world . I thought buying and giving away 3 skeins of this very special yarn was one way of participating in this awesome campaign.

What else could I do? I could buy more yarn to add to the mountain I already have, knit a cute hat and Tell you about their efforts and how You Too can give to this worthy cause while you enter to win same cool yarn. And don’t forget to share this link with your friends.

Note: I purchased the give-away yarn at my local AC Moore .

    I love this site and it’s easy to use videos and patterns. It got me started and I have made hats for my friends and family and even a couple of dog sweaters. I am about to start on a hat for the charity, this is such a nice way to help others.
    I was thinking of making a tree skirt for our Christmas tree, but can’t find a pattern. Maybe I can piece together some triangle shawls. We shall see.

    • Denise Canela December 12, 2014 at 7:06 am

  63. MaryAnn December 1, 2014 at 7:52 am

    My church was part of starting World Vision so I know of the organization and their great mission. Had not heard of the knit for kids program and I’m excited about it. Would love to send some hats when I get done with my holiday projects. Thank-you for always helping us find new ways to give back.
    I discovered Premier Soft yarn a while back and it is great! What an awesome contest!

  66. Cristy Russell December 1, 2014 at 7:06 am

    I wish we had a A.C. Moore in our town so I could try this yarn. Most of the hats I make are for kids and I give 95% of them away.

  67. Cheryl December 1, 2014 at 6:26 am

    I have heard of World Vision, but I never heard of their knit for kids program.

  68. Teresa Matson December 1, 2014 at 5:31 am

    First I have heard of them! I have been busy practicing new stitches and learning how to make slippers and mittens, along with the usual hats and scarves! Great way to practice and have a wonderful organization to send them to! My family and friends are going to be warm this winter, and now some little ones will be as well! What a wonderful way to share! I have been looking for a good winter project, and this fits the bill!

  69. Teresa Lam December 1, 2014 at 1:13 am
