The end of summer is bittersweet; for those of us who love yarn, it’s time to start dreaming about chilly weather projects as well as plan ahead for holiday gifts. If a yarn basket full of UFOs (un-finished objects) is taking up too much physical and mental space, we’re here to set you free! Last year’s sweater project that just needs blocking and a neckband? Single skeins in search of stash-busting patterns? That second sock? Tidying up brings plenty of rewards when you participate in Finish It! for Fall. The idea is simple: before August 31, bring in any project you’ve finished since March using Uncommon Threads yarn, and we’ll heap admiration, recognition and yes, prizes on you for a job well done. Specifically…
- We’ll take a picture of you and your finished project for our Wall of Fame (real and virtual: in the shop; on Ravelry, Facebook, Instagram and our website. You can opt out of the virtual Wall if you wish.)
- Your name will go in to a prize drawing to be announced in September at Open Knit Night. The grand prize is a $100 gift certificate to Uncommon Threads!
- If you’ve finished a sweater, you’ll also receive a coupon for 10% off a future purchase.
- If you’ve finished your FIRST sweater ever, you’ll receive the 10% off coupon and a special gift.
