Bravo for Brava Yarn

Blogged under Crafty Products by Tammy on Wednesday 20 June 2012 at 1:14 pm

I have heard endlessly about Knit Picks, and as it happens, a friend of mine recently asked me to make a hat for her soon to be born grandson using “gator” colors of orange and blue. I searched high and low for soft acrylic yarn in the right shades. Orange was especially tough to find. Luckily, Knit Picks has started carrying an acrylic brand of yarn called Bravo, and it comes in lots of different colors, including orange and bright blue. And, as promised in the web site’s description of the yarn, it was nice and soft, and at $2.99 for 218 yards of worsted weight, I am pretty impressed with the price too. Unfortunately, I was in such a rush to make the hat (actually ended up making two for her) I spaced out and didn’t photograph them! I have a lot this yarn left, so I’m thinking of using the orange to make some monsters for a toy donation drive I plan to participate in soon.
