Reflective Yarn!!!

Hi Dynamos!

Whew, our Spring Cleaning has turned into a house renovation.  We've spent the last 2 weeks cleaning and painting and re-imagining what our living space is.  I can't wait to share some pictures with you when we get all done!  OMG, y'all, I'm getting a craft room!!!!

In the meantime, I've got to tell you about an awesome giveaway going on over at All Free Crochet!  Last month I got an opportunity to try out some of Red Heart's new Reflective Yarn and create some patterns with it!  It's so much fun to work with!!!!  And you could win some for yourself if you enter their giveaway (and a cool Red Heart tote to carry it in!!!)!!

The reflective yarn is so cool!  It's perfect for safety items, like the helmet cover I created, because there's a reflective filament in the yarn that makes the yarn appear to glow as light flashes against it.  The picture above was taken in normal light, but the flash from my camera makes it look almost fake!  I like that Mims will be more visible to cars when she rides her bike or scooter!  (And moms/grandmas of boys, the ears on the helmet cover are totally optional, if you wanted to add some extra reflective safety to your little guy's helmets).

I also designed a little shrug for Mims to wear on summer evenings. It will be perfect for nighttime walks to keep her extra safe, and it will be so much fun in pictures because it looks crazy cool when it's reflecting light!

If you'd like to see my full review of the yarn, grab my patterns, AND enter the giveaway go HERE!!!  Ugh, break time's over, I've got to get back to cleaning. LOL!!!



  1. Those are fab patterns, and Mims is such a good sport for modelling them - Miss Photogenic! Good review, what a shame the competition isn't international. I think I've seen something similar on sale here in UK though (Red Heart has only just started selling here) at Hobbycraft.
    Thanks Jaime, your posts always cheer me up!

  2. A bike helmet cover?! So creative!! I never would have thought of something like that. What a great way to get a kid to WANT to wear their helmet! :)

  3. How exciting! Reflective yarn!

  4. It will be good to use the reflective fabric to make the fashion prodycts.

  5. Gosh! This little crochet shrug is too cute. I just hired a professional writer to do my dissertation for me and now that I’m done with that, I’ve got the time to see what’s new on your page. By the way, I’m so excited to see your new living room settings as I might steal some ideas for my lounge as well.
