Last year, they covered the Craft and Folk Art Museum with Granny Squares.
This year, they're asking you to Put a Ring On It!

"Do you remember the childhood saying, “if you love it so much, why don’t you marry it?”
Inspired by the Beyonce song, Put a Ring on It asks what do you value so much that you would want to put a ring on it? What do you want to highlight in your life, that usually goes unrecognized?
It can be any person, place, or thing. Is there a great old building you’d like to see preserved? A favorite food only your grandmother made? The sunset over the ocean? Don’t just knit a literal yarn engagement ring – we want to see the unexpected and the under-appreciated!
YBLA wants you to put a knit or crochet ring on what you love and take a photo of it. YBLA wants photos of knit & crochet (yarn art, whatever) rings attached to the objects of your love. YBLA wants YOUR story about why you love what you love.
Make a ring, attach it, take a photo, send it to us. Looking for inspiration, or a place to begin? Check out our pattern library.
The introduction of Put a Ring on It will be in a gallery exhibition at the Manhattan Beach Creative Art Center, June 2014. Please send us a picture of your ring by May 1, 2014 to be included in the exhibition."
By the way, my ring-themed link-up is still live. I'm extending the deadline to May 1st, just like YBLA.
It's not just about patterns. Any sort of visual that is ring-like will do!
