How many of you make gifts for the holidays? I’m one of those people who have plenty of people I gift that appreciate the items that are hand created and gifted with love. As my family has grown, it has become impossible to keep up with and gift everyone. In my immediate family, we try to make it all for the kids …. However, I do like to make items for a few of them. Tonight I’m going to work on the Gift Pocket Crochet Scarf.

Do you realize the date? I don’t think it really hit me until this past weekend … OMGoodness, its November already. There are those expecting a really cold winter, even here in the South. I’ve been working on holiday gifts, but tonight I’m going back to the throw I began early on, during Week 2 of the WNSC, The Big Octagon Throw. I’m thinking we may need a few extra’s this winter.

Sometimes a round can fit into a square hole!
Whether it’s a cherished heirloom or a knock-around sweater for your son or daughter, what you create is an investment of your heart. Isn’t it equally important to invest just a little more time to know how to take care of what your hands have created? Continue reading “Sometimes a round peg CAN fit into a square hole . . .”
Congratulations to all of our Yarn of the Month winners! Below are a list of the names of the monthly winners. Red Heart wants to thank everyone for the wonderful comments, and remember to check back often for announcements about other opportunities to win big!
We have only a few short weeks to go before Gnora and Gnorbert will be showing off their new babies. They will be having a boy and a girl. They can’t make the announcement to the world without names, so we need boy and girl gnome names. Continue reading “The Adventures of Gnora & Gnorbert — Gname the Gnomes”
Today is Halloween and I’m sure we’ll see lots of gobblins and scary little creatures running through the neighborhood. I won’t have as much time to work on a project tonight, but I do have a little something set aside that I started on Monday. I haven’t made myself anything in awhile, so tonight I’m going to work on the Painted Wool Vest. Continue reading “Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge Season 4, Week 6”
One of the best things about being involved in the designs for Red Heart is getting to know the work of so many talented people. Paul DuBuc is a great example. He has taken our beloved Red Heart Super Saver and created some of the most awe-inspiring art pieces I’ve ever seen. He told me how he first became interested in God’s Eyes while attending concerts by the Grateful Dead and other rock groups back in the sixties, and noticing that they placed God’s Eyes on the stage.
Elegant, stylish, sophisticated … Chic! Continue reading “Yarn of the Month Giveaway for November”
Team Red Heart attended Stitches East a couple weeks ago and while there we had a number of requests to come visit various Knit and Crochet Guilds in 2013. Those that saw the new yarns we had were so excited, they couldn’t wait to get back and show their other members. These are guilds with over 100 members that attend; we aren’t counting those members that do not attend regularly. This is a great opportunity for these stitchers to see all the new yarns and colors we are presenting, play with them and see what creation is calling to them.
