Take to the streets
Yarn shops the country over want you to know how much they love you by hosting a treasure hunt that will get you jumping into your car (or onto your e-bike) and exploring what regional yarn shops have to offer. Whether you like to give your yarn a squeeze before you buy, or get some helpful advice, local yarn shops are well worth a visit. Headed up by Louise Sheward of The Fibre Lounge, the Keep Yarn On Our Streets campaign is challenging crafters to collect badges from 10 of the 42 participating shops, to be in with a chance to win a £100 voucher. The hunt is running throughout October. Find more info at www. keepyarnonourstreets.co.uk and hashtag any piccies of your visits with #keepyarnonourstreets.
