I feel so honored to be chosen by Michael’s to tell you about their new yarn line! Because they are such a great company I didn’t have to think twice about saying YES! And I was even more thrilled when the yarn came for me to play with. They also know I have both knit and crochet fans so I get to show you projects in both crafts and everyone wins! Here is my first FREE pattern as part of a 5 month campaign to bring you Loops & Threads Colorwheel awesomeness.
