WELCOME TO THE 2016 YARNATHON & BEYOND: A SPACE RACE

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 planets in our Yarniverse, beginning with the sun. You'll receive ESK swag or space-themed goodies in your order each time you reach a new planet.

When you reach Neptune, you've completed your exploration of the Yarniverse! You'll also earn a total of ten stars for your team along the way. You can submit your projects and keep track of your accomplishments on your Yarnathon dashboard.

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 12/25 will win it all!

2016 YARNATHON & BEYOND 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 can select from prizes that include gift certificates, individual yardage, and stars for your team.

YARNATRON PUZZLES - Earn yards for yourself AND your team by answering weekly puzzles from Yarnatron 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 Penguinauts, the Rabbiteers, Starsheep, and the Whaliens. Visit your team's Ravelry thread to meet your new teammates!

Have fun this year and good luck earning those stars!
