When I think of Easter it takes me back to a happy place when I was a child. I remember being so excited to shop for a new Easter dress and brand new white shoes, because it was okay to wear white again. I remember baskets, bunnies, egg hunts, flowers and warmer temperatures. It always seemed like everyone was just a little happier and it still makes me smile just thinking about this time of year.
Thank you to everyone who named Red Heart as America’s Most Recommended Yarn Brand in the Women’s Choice Award research survey! Below is the official press release.
The color grey was not picked as the “color of the year”, but I think it has surpassed all other colors in the past two years. For instance, it has a book deal, movie deal and most importantly plenty of free patterns on RedHeart.com. I wanted to bring a few together so you could enjoy the beauty of this color and the wide variety of yarns that feature this alluring color. There is something in this list for almost any adult. Whether you need an accessory, garment or something for your home, we have it here. We should embrace the color because it is not going anywhere anytime soon. Enjoy!

Almost immediately after completing my yarnbomb installation at Lizard’s Mouth in the mountains of Santa Barbara, California, where I wrapped 18 massive boulders in fiber art, I went to work on what would become the Alien Campsite. That was 7 months ago.
