This year at CHA (Crafts & Hobbies Association’s convention) we were all about the bulk, ’bout the bulk, ’bout the Bernat-Mega-Bulk-y. Ouch, that one even hurt me as I typed it. I apologize.
Big knits are on-trend right now with a huge presence on the runway, Pinterest, and fashion blogs alike. Bernat‘s super-sized yarn, Mega Bulky is like a ball of BOLD — for you, dear knitter, crocheter and crafter — to create something that’s both en vogue, and uniquely you. This was the gospel that Yarnspirations.com (via Web Marketing dude, Rob Aoki and yours truly) brought to share with the room full of designers who attended Prime Publishing’s (parent company of FaveCrafts.com, AllFreeKnitting.com, and AllFreeCroche.com to name a few) annual Blogger Networking Event. We came armed to the teeth with a bevvy of finger-knit, Mega Bulky bangles to hand out. Our message was simple: creative types think big! Wear it with pride.
Here are some of the many faces of designers we chatted with about what they might do with Mega Bulky yarn — knit, crochet, macrame, yarn-wrap, latch hook? I can’t wait to see what these crafty minds come up with!
A few of my buddies stopped by (clockwise): Crafty Chica, Kathy Cano-Murillo; Yarnthing’s Marly Bird; The Impatient Crafter, Margot Potter; The Crochet Dude, Drew Emborsky; Modern Surrealist’s Marisa Pawelko; Prime Publishing gals; Craft Gossip & Craftside’s Stefanie Girard; Rad Megan, Megan Andersen-Read; Terri O.
