Let get a holiday

I have taken this moment to ask you to pass this along we have many holidays to show the love everyone has for the people of the world let make sept 12th international crochet day.. On this day we will make something with our own hands and time and give it away to a complete stranger .

here is a post by a very popular person from Crochetville you may know him from his website were he makes and sells wonderful wood hooks if not check him out at
Bid on a hook

and here is his post
Lets all get together and declare and International Crochet Day! The ball's rolling already with folks who are entering a hook giveaway contest on my blog by promising to promote the date, (Sept. 12) however they can. Several have put posts up in their blogs, passing the word, and we even have a post by Andy of "Crochet Depot" forum fame! If enogh folks spread the word, and that's not really difficult with all this internet stuff.. We'll end up with a genuine International Crochet Day that will spread goodwill around the world! Famine and wars will cease and EVERYONE will share goodness and kindness everywhere! Ok, that might be just a wee bit of an exaggeration but what harm could it do? A day for crochet!! Take a knitter to lunch! Who knows... maybe this time next year you'll see Hallmark Crochet Day cards!!Mark your calendars and spread the word!!!jimbo
