I come from a long generation of fiber artists: my great-grandmother crocheted, my grandmother knit, and both my mom and my aunt crochet as well. I remember being 5 years old and seeing these gorgeous, brightly colored afghans all around my great-grandmother’s house. She kept them on the sofa, on chairs, and at least one in each bedroom. Everyone in my family has used Susan Bates hooks, so it just seemed natural that I would gravitate towards them too.
We have two new amazing types of Red Heart Super Saver yarn: Super Saver Stripes and Super Saver Ombré. Take a look at these fantastic patterns our Joy Creators have designed using the new color effect yarns.

Warm Up America! was started by Evie Rosen whose dream was based on Neighbors helping Neighbors. Evie was a former yarn shop owner in Wausau, WI. In 1990, frustrated by the great need for blankets for the homeless and her inability to knit large quantities fast enough, she came up with the idea of dividing up the process and asking friends to knit and crochet small 7” by 9” sections. Now a nationwide program of the Craft Yarn Council, individuals and groups are encouraged to complete and donate afghans in their own community. To date, hundreds of thousands of afghans and accessories have been distributed to people in need by Warm Up America groups and through the CYC office.
