Part of the fun of taking a passenger steam train trip is talking with your fellow passengers. This year, we’re providing two locations where our passengers can get to know each other. We’d love to hear about your favorite things you’ve discovered on the tour and see photos of your current crochet projects. You’re invited to join us daily for virtual cocktails/appetizers and dinner. (We’ll be sharing links to some fabulous recipes!)

  1. This yarn is so beautiful.
    I am truly enjoying this NatCroMo Crochet Express.
    So many amazing and talented yarn artists!

  2. Not often have I seen a skein this large, but a few times I have at yarn shops. The colors in this yarn are gorgeous and calling out to be hooked up into one extra large or two smaller Summer Fruit Shawls!

  3. What a generous amount of yarn….. would love to make a shawl with the beautiful color… Thanks for your gift to someone….

  4. I Loooovvvvveeeee Interlacement yarns! I buy more than one skein at a time. I made the Fiesta Skirt from Margaret Hubert and her daughter’s Racerback top with Rick Rack yarn and wore it at a CGOA conference. You can’t beat the price for that yarn quality & quantity.

  5. This yarn is so yummy. I recently purchased my first Tunisian hooks and would love to use this yarn for my first pattern. Thank you for opportunity.

  6. Delicious looking and, I’ll bet, delicious feeling yarn! And another hot-climate-friendly yarn! The shawl pattern is so elegant, and I recently order a set of tunisian hooks to start learning. Thanks so much for this opportunity!

  7. I have – it was one of the first hanks I ever purchased. I had no idea how to wind it and stupidly attempted to do so. I had a HUGE mess and it took me hours to straighten it out. I won but the dogs learned some new expletives!

  8. Yes, I have seen a skein of big yarn before but it didn’t have a label so maybe I was wrong. The colors of the yarn make me think summer.

  9. Oh, yes! I have some yarn I bought from a weaving organization – hand dyed rayon/silk that was 1200yds. Crochet uses so much more yarn than knitting I am always on the hunt for XL skeins.

  10. Actually I have seen this particular yarn in person but don’t remember if it was this colorway. Also YE used to carry some rather large skeins. Fun to work with such large skeins because you can get a whole garment or several accessories from one skein. Great for people like me who like to do accessories in matching sets.

  11. No! Wow! The biggest skien I have ever used was a little over 800 yards . . . and this yarn of such a large yardage is so so pretty . . . I love the bright cheery color way!!!! A shawl would look so lovely!

  12. Yes, I have occasionally been able to find very large hanks of yarn. I love crocheting a big, intricate shawl pattern and then only having two ends to weave in when I’m done.

  13. The largest skeins of yarn I’ve seen are those one pound balls of craft yarn you can get at the big box or chain craft stores. However I don’t know if there’s 1200 yards in those balls; that’s a lot of yarn! I’ve certainly never seen this much of an art yarn in one hank. The color is pretty, too.

  14. WOW! I’ve never seen a skein of yarn that large! I’d love to be able to see it close up..*hint , hint*..

  15. Oh my goodness! The longest I’ve seen is the pound of love and caron pound yarns but they arent nearly as pretty as this ! This yarn is absolutely stunning!

  16. I can’t imagine how big that size of skein is compared tothe smaller ones I usually buy. Hope I win so I can find out for myself. Picture is a beautiful color.

  17. I can’t imagine what 1200 yards looks like – you need something in the photo to show scale! It’s gorgeous yarn!

  18. I have never seen a skein that big and love the color of it. Would love to try it. Thank you for a chance to win it.
