Upcoming Lion Brand Summer Yarns Contest Answered

Summer isn't typically the time we think about taking up needles and wool, but the availability of light-weight and gossamer yarns these days, it's the perfect time to whip up some new projects.

We're teaming up with our friends from Lion Brand to bring you the Summer Yarns Contest!

Show off your lace techniques, craft up new totebags, make some summer shawls or sundresses. Think beach, bbq, and long, hot days, and get your needles, hooks and looms ready to go.  We'll be launching this one soon!


Damn you guys keep throwing contests at us :D 3 are still open and the dadandme one starting soon to (any confirmation on date yet) and now this one opens to... You guys really make me spend my vacation in my basement building stuff and behind my computer writing the ibles :p

No, it just means he has some "balls"....of yarn.

Two names to start with: Franklin Habit and Jared Flood. They're men. They knit.

the guy on that website you posted looks more creepy and less man.

He was a football player, unless you are a Brit and consider American Football a pansy sport. The point being real men can do anything. And ladies too.

football manly, sitting in a lazy boy wereing a christmas sweater knitting not manly.

wearing the Christmas sweater knit by your wife, manly.

no wereing your favorite sports jersey while whatching the game or playing your favorite sport manly.

vacuuming up the chips off the floor, using toxic cleaners to get the pizza stains off the couch, figuring out how to pre-treat your muddy pants after the game-winning slide into home plate without asking your mom, manly.

A few weeks ago, there was a paracord contest. The prize was a Leatherman. https://www.instructables.com/id/Paracord-Contest-Winners/

But yes, we hear you!  More stuff coming your way soon.  Is there anything you'd specifically like to suggest?

I would like something that has to do with extreme sports, machanics, or carpentry.

Does it have to be traditional yarn? May I use plarn?
