Smiling at Sparkles

Ball of Yarn

Okay, if you have been reading my blog for any length of time, you likely know I have a thing about sparkly yarn. I love it! So¬†I am thrilled¬†that I’ve been asked to design something in Red Heart’s “Shimmer” yarn.

This is a lovely yarn with a subtle color-matched sparkle that is so fun. It’s available in a variety of solid colors and subtle color-changing heathers.

Close Up of Color

I really like the colorway “Lipstick” that I’m working with. Strands of different colors from purple to fiery reds to hot pink give it loads of punch. And this yarn feels amazingly luxurious for a 97% Acrylic yarn (the 3% metallic polyester is what gives it the sparkle). What is really great is the sparkle isn’t scratchy feeling.

Of course, I can’t show you the design I’m working on, but I’ll let you know when it is available. I’m very sure this won’t be the last design I make in this yarn.
