Thank you to Red Heart yarns for sponsoring the Yarn Bomb project at the Knit and Crochet Show.
They sent all kinds of great yarn that I used to create most of the projects shown in the gardens in the previous post –
Unforgettable – Looks like wool but is 100% acrylic and soft. Each skein has a lot of yardage and comes in beautiful color combos.
Vivid – Super chunky yarn in super bright colors – work up quick – perfect for yarn bombs!
Reflective – Bright colors with a reflective thread throughout.
Gumdrop – Super soft and comes in bright colorways that are great for projects for kids (or yarn bombs – 🙂 ).
Swanky – – Oval color-matching sequins add a ton of sparkle to all the gem tones and it’s affordable!
(Visit www.redheart.com to order these yarns or visit your local craft store.)
Here I am in the Red Heart Booth in the Expo Center filled with all of the great yarn vendors.
This large art piece was made with the Reflective yarn in a rainbow of colors and then stretched across a large hoop. When photographed with flash, the reflective thread in the yarn shines.
Here is the same project without the flash:
This giant Celtic Knot Heart sat on a table in the booth – I crocheted with the Vivid yarn for this project and mounted it to a piece of cardboard.
Be on the lookout for these patterns to be made available here!
