For the past month I’ve been happily hooking away on a supercool project. I kept it secret until now, I can finally say it out loud: I’m going to be a design warrior! This week, my design runs against a wonderful glove design from Jonna from Frayed Knot! I’m super excited to see what she came up with. Our patterns will be available as soon as a winner has been chosen.
For the design I was kindly provided with a yarn that I’ve never used before: Red heart Midnight Boutique. I know Red Heart is a big deal in the USA, but I was never able to touch and feel their yarns in the yarn stores here. So you can probably imagine my excitement when I opened my box of yarn and these beauties came out:
I used the colourways Misty and Moonlight. The cool thing about this yarn is that it has a little metallic sparkle. Awesome! I had seen it on the pictures, but to really feel the yarn was quite a surprise. I figured because of the metallic thread that’s incorporated the yarn would be a little bit stiff, maybe even a little bit scratchy. But it’s actually really, really soft and fluffy! Definitely a great introduction to Red Heart for me.
Now I come to think about it, this yarn would also be awesome for the Flower power pattern (Ravelry). Sparkle shimmer flowers, doesn’t that sound like a great plan? As a broche, as a hair tie, yes, I can definitely see possibilities here! Big plus, the Flower power pattern is now on sale: you get a 25% discount up until next sunday!
So that’s it! I’m an official Design warrior now. I’m excited to see how everything turns out! And if you feel like it you can go and vote for your favorite design!
