CHA Yarn: Lion Brand

Lion Brand’s booth is always a show stopper (remember last year’s zoo?), and this year is no different. Bright, bold colors everywhere; it was a yarnbomber’s paradise!

This dude had the right idea… CHA is tiring!

We’re betting the concept designers just got back from St. Petersburg

We’re stealing this as soon as no one is looking.

Lion Brand has a couple of new offerings this season:

Tweed Stripes is a self-striping, bulky-weight yarn that is very light and soft. This would be perfect for afghans because it’s not too heavy.

The Superwash Merino Cashmere has a wonderful hand, SO soft, not itchy at all. This will be available in 14 colors.

They’re also releasing Vanna’s Glamour in a few colors for 14 total, Nature’s Choice Organic Cotton in 7 new print colors, and Fun Fur in 9 new wearable brights.

Dana Vitek is a craft-‐‑supply hoarder with an obscenely understanding husband. She works full-‐‑time as a geologist, and spends her free time sort of paying attention to her two kids, reading a lot, and crafting. She's a crocheter, but not a knitter because knitting seems way too complicated. She's a card maker, but usually only 10 minutes before a birthday party. She cusses at her sewing machine. She has at least 12 different types of glue, but can never find the scissors she wants when she wants them. Dana started writing and editing for Craft Critique in 2008. She is perhaps best known for her Mother of All Black Ink Tests, and her annual April Fool's posts. She blogs extremely irregularly at Stamping Science.
