Happy Feet Splash Circular Scarf

Monday, December 22nd, 2014

Lately we see a trend of using interesting dye techniques with easy to knit patterns. The simple patterns show off the yarn in the best way- making sure that the specialty of the dyers handiwork is paramount.

Our Happy Feet Splash yarn is just that- a fun sprinkle dyed yarn with speckles of many different colors throughout. Shown below in a design by Sue Hilger. The color is best described as… blue oreo! Sue’s design is a nice garter and yarn over circular scarf, with a fun twist at the end- you get to drop stitches on purpose! Check out all the cool splash colors and designs we have in Happy Feet Splash… Then, download Sue’s free Happy Feet Splash Circular Scarf pattern.

We love Yarnboa!

Friday, December 5th, 2014

There is something very special happening at the Delaware Museum of Natural History! Designer Sharon Silverman has lead her team to create a beautiful and unique yarn bomb experience. Sign with leg warmers (small)
Our favorite component has to be Yarnboa!  This cuddly snake  is over 40 feet long and constructed mostly of Plymouth Yarns! Almost 9000 yards of yarn were used for this creature which was created to celebrate the museum’s exhibit Titanboa:Monster Snake.  The snake is filled with used newspaper and plastic bags.  Sharon plans to reconfigure the crocheted creations into blankets, which will be donated to the Friends Association for Care and Protection of Children in West Chester. You can meet her at the museum on Sunday December 14 from 1-3 pm.  The Titanboa exhibit will run until January 25th, 2015.Yarnboa on display (small) Yarnboa awaiting installation (small) Looking from the back end (Small)
Sharon has been creating beautiful yarn bombs for some time now, you can see some examples of her amazing work on her facebook page.  Here are a couple other creations you can see at the museum located at 4840 Kennett Pike, Wilmington, De., 19807.
