Facebook and I fall in and out of love on a daily basis, but it was definitely a love moment when it ping’d me to let me know Vanna’s been busy cooking up new colors for her Glamour line – Lion Brand Yarn Studio’s yarn of the month (so sad I can’t take advantage of the 15% in studio discount). I’ve loved this yarn from the minute I saw it however the available colors were basic and boring, I never had enough interest to actually purchase any. For me the louder the better, so when I saw the new color assortment I nearly died! Loving all the new colors and their lux names, I put some in my digital shopping cart and merrily skipped to the check out. I picked up some Jewel (my fav color), Gold and Onyx… very Betsy Johnson! Once I receive it and whip an accessory or two I’ll post my thoughts about the yarn. So far many of the reviews I’m finding are positive; most metallic threaded yarns tend to be scratchy and hard to work with, Vanna’s Glamour yarn has “a soft hand to it”.

What I also love about these yarns is the new wide range of colors makes it possible to create interesting and beautiful color stories. Below is a few samplings of the yarns in our Rewind Knits and Crochet color stories.
Unique: Ruby Red/Bronze/Copper
Sweet: Topaz/Jewel/Copper (very cupcake…yummy!)
