There is no better feeling than seeing a family member succeed in their dreams.
Okay, Vickie Howell isn't exactly a blood relative of mine, but she is my cousin in craftiness! From her eight seasons as host of the DIY Network's Knitty Gritty, six books, dozens of magazine columns - consider her yours too.
This week, this mom of three launches her new yarn line, Stitch.Rock.Love. Sheep(ish) with Caron Yarns. Seriously. You can walk into any JoAnn store in the country and find her display. For craftypreneurs - that's HUGE!
The color story has a retro spirit, yet works for contemporary designs and patterns. Well, here, I'll Vickie explain.
To celebrate the launch, Vickie is holding a blog tour!
Every day for 2 1/2 weeks, check out a new post across the blogosphere from some of her fantastic friends and colleagues. Collectively, they'll be doing yarn reviews, interviews, sharing projects they're working on, designing free patterns for you, doing giveaways, and more! Here's the schedule:
