now look at this you yarn lovers! the new Catania Grande yarn came in... and isn't it gorgeous?
it has the same shine as the regular Catania, but is much thicker. crocheted or knitted on size 4-5 mm it is really chunky compared to the regular version. But it is lovely at first sight.
I am very much looking forward to designing and making projects with this pretty yarn. However... before I will sell patterns and kits with this new yarn, I want to try it out with a blanket and these coasters. Quality before anything; it has to be washable and durable just like the regular Catania yarn, otherwise I won't sell it. and for that testing I could use a little help.
and that's where you come in
are you up for a challenge?
* if you have and idea for a crochet or knit project with this yarn,
* that you can finish before the end of March,
* and will use and wash regularly after that,
* I would love to hear your idea for a project!
* if your idea is chosen I will send you the yarn free of charge
* and you get to keep the item you've created.
how is that?
at this point I have six colors available as you can see in the pictures. you can choose up to 5 balls of yarn for your project, and you are allowed to include more balls of 1 color. nevertheless your idea has to include at least 3 different colors, so we can test how they endure usage and machine washing.
during the process of making your item, I would love to get some pictures to post them here on the blog. that way we can all enjoy the progress with you. if you have a blog yourself, you are of course very welcome to post them there too. I will be working on a blanket at the same time, and both projects will be part of a weekly Wednesday feature here on the blog
to submit your idea, you can leave a comment to this post with your project idea until Monday February 11th
can't wait to read what you will come up with!
