I can't believe that this is my fourth Design Wars that I have participated in. The last one was the Back to School Challenge in which my Marek Vest was voted Favorite Design! Thank you again for all who voted! It was so much fun!!!
This time around we are once again sponsored by the incredible Red Heart Yarns. We are working with a brand new line called Heads Up. This yarn feels like a cloud in your hands. The feel is yummy, the colors are vibrant and the items created with it have a texture that you can't get from most other yarns. There are a couple things to note when choosing this yarn for a project. Even though the yarn itself is classified as a #5 Bulky, it does work up and feel more like a heavy #4. Almost like Read Heart With Love so make sure you check your gauge before starting a project! Also, the way the fibres are spun causes it to split more easily, so you do have to be careful when working with it. But please, don't let that stop you! In fact, I enjoyed working with this yarn on my Design Wars project so much, I already have a companion piece ready for release and something else in the works!
If you are looking for a new yarn to try for the cooler seasons ahead, I really encourage you to grab a skein or two and have fun! This one doesn't disappoint! And with 8 designers competing in this Challenge, there will be no shortage of stunning designs for you to test it out on. Want to know who the Challengers are? You can read all about it here.
Happy Hugs and Yarny Dreams!
