All Finished!  I blogged a couple weeks ago about my new iPhone case from Connect Design; here is the finished design.  It came out great; if anyone is interested in the pattern or thread colors, please let me know…I’ll scan my scribble scratch.

New Yarn Line From Martha Stewart

September 7, 2011 § Leave a comment

I am super excited over Lion Brand Yarn’s partnership with Martha Stewart Crafts, creating a new (and beautiful) line of yarn!  It is now available at JoAnn’s and should become available where ever Martha Stewart Crafts are purchased.  Take a look at these lovelies:

Glitter Eyelash Bulky: 78% Polyester, 22% Metallic

Alpaca Blend Bulky: 40% Acrylic, 40% Wool, 20% Alpaca

Extra Soft Wool Blend Worsted: 65% Acrylic, 35% Wool

Lofty Wool Blend Super Bulky: 75% Wool, 25% Acrylic

Mambo Super Bulky: 75% Acrylic, 9% Nylon, 7% Wool, 3% Angora

Merino Worsted: 100% Merino

Roving Wool Bulky: 100% Wool

Cotton Hemp Worsted: 65% Cotton, 35% Hemp (not available yet)

Now to decide what to use first and what to make…decisions, decisions, decisions!  You can read more at Martha Moments or at Lion Brand Yarn.  Also, these yarns are now searchable on Ravelry.
