WELCOME TO THE 2019
YARNATHON - AROUND THE WORLD

INDIVIDUAL YARNATHON

Buy yarn, earn prizes, and we'll take care of the rest! Every time you buy yarn, we'll keep track of your yardage and add store credit to your account when you reach a new yardage level. Levels are represented by the countries on our world tour, beginning with New York City, USA. You'll also receive a small treat in your order each time you reach a new milestone.

Make it to Italy and become a permanent member of the 10K club! 10K club members enjoy extra lotto tickets in orders over $30, early access to new yarns, special sales during the year, and free shipping on one order every 30 days.

When you reach Eat.Sleep.Knit, you've finished your journey to find the best yarn shop in all the land! You'll also earn a total of twenty stars for your team along the way. But you don't have to stop there! You'll continue to earn an additional store credit and stars no matter how many times you decide to circle the globe.

New for 2019: Yarnmazing Race
We'll also keep track throughout the year of ALL of the yardage accumulated by every ESK customer as the kitties race around the globe with the teams. You'll unlock fun prizes or challenges for all ESK customers as the kitties reach the same countries on the world map that you will on your individual journey.

TEAM YARNATHON - COLLECT ALL THE STARS TO WIN!

Looking for a new crafting challenge? Want to meet other hand-dyed yarn fans, or simply enjoy a fun game? Take your crafting to the next level and help earn stars for your team by participating all year long in the following activities we've designed to be both stash-busting and -enhancing. The team with the most stars by 12/29 will win it all!

You can submit your projects and keep track of your accomplishments on your Yarnathon dashboard.

2019 AROUND THE WORLD YARNATHON INCLUDES:

KNIT-A-LONGS - Earn individual yardage and stars for your team by participating in one or more craft-a-longs throughout the year just by knitting the fabulous ESK yarn you already have!

BOOSTER CLUB - Earn badges for a variety of feats and foibles, like trying a new craft, knitting a pair of socks, or untangling that huge mess of a skein on your winder. At each Booster Club level you reach, you'll earn a prize. Prizes include store credit, stars for your team, and a swanky new tote bag.

WEEKLY PUZZLES - Earn yards for yourself AND your team by answering weekly puzzles from Walter the Sheep about the yarns we carry.

Get to know your fellow teammates on your team's Ravelry thread. This is a great place for knitting help, staying updated on what's happening at ESK, and fun chat. This year's teams are: the Elephelts, the Knitmunks, Swatcharoos, and the Turtlenecks. Visit your team's Ravelry thread to meet your new teammates!

Have fun this year and good luck earning those stars!
