I had decided, as part of my celebrating, to recycle a crochet project: a pillow cover using "designer" yarns, that I had created a long while ago. It was starting to show a lot of wear and I felt it was time for it to go. After I removed it from the pillow I discovered the reverse side still "had some life to it" and would look cool as a mailbox cozy.

I think the project came out pretty neat looking, sprucing up my weathered mailbox. Even Mr Dee likes it. The crocheted flower is actually a pin that the mail carrier is welcome to take/keep. :)

They also have really cool gear you can order from CafePress; I got the reusable bag, so I'm always toting a project around, technically celebrating "I Love Yarn Day" throughout the entire year. How will you be celebrating?
