Design Wars 6: The Yarn

Can you believe it's already Design Wars SIX??  Time is flying by!  This cycle of DW brings us 9 amazing challengers & a new yarn selection.  The yarn was chosen by the fans for this round, and at first I have to admit I was a little disappointed.  I was really hoping Red Heart Unforgettable would win, but the fans decided Red Heart With Love was what they liked best.  To be honest, I didn't particularly want to work with "another boring worsted weight yarn"... but after the box arrived, I quickly changed my mind.


Pretty, huh?  I was quickly inspired by the bright colors and knew exactly what I wanted to make.  This yarn worked out VERY well for my design, and I'm VERY happy with the results.  I'm able to purchase RHWL from Walmart and JoAnn stores in my area.  If you haven't tried it yet, it's worth it.  The skeins are generous, and it's a very nice all-purpose yarn that would be perfect for just about any of your knitting and crocheting projects.


Here's the sneak peek of my DW6 design.  I couldn't resist making it rainbow-colored.  Those of you that know me probably weren't surprised at all.  I've made several samples of my design in lots of different color combinations, and I'm excited to share them with you SOON!  Here's a quick intro video I made for DW... I talk a little about myself, the yarn, etc.


The DW6 Final Reveal will be announced Thursday, February 27th (or one day sooner if you're a newsletter subscriber).  You'll then be able to start voting for your favorite designs & you can enter to win an amazing prize back donated by Red Heart Yarns!  For more information about all of this, please visit the Design Wars Facebook Page.
