♥ Heidi Bears Designs Ravelry Group Launch ♥



I have finally launched a Ravelry group for Heidi Bears Designs! In order to celebrate this, I am having a group launch promotion on Ravelry for my patterns...50% off the usual price. The promotion will require you to enter a coupon at the checkout stage (keep a look-out for a small tag icon with the legend "use a coupon code" at the checkout point, and enter the coupon code HEIDIBEARSLOVE, which should automatically deduct 50% from your purchase price! It's a small way for me to share the ♥ with everyone :) The promotion will run from Monday the 7th of January 2013, starting at 19H00 GMT and will end on the 9th of January 2013 at 19H00 GMT....so go and diarise it now folks! :)

I am very excited about the group...I will be launching new patterns, promotions and generally hanging out and living the yarn addiction life with all of you...

I have been working hard on several new designs, that will be rolled out over the next few months...today I spent some time dyeing a specific color set for one of the designs...here is a pic...can you guess from the colors what it will be? (Hint*: this little person can be found lazing about in parts of Africa...)



The yarn is a wonderful squishy, soft 100% superwash merino in a DK weight...it's my favorite yarn at the moment to knit with...


The reddish pink color is for a different design, and will be used most likely for shoes :)

  

It's a beautiful day here at the coast today and perfect weather for knitting and spending the last days of our holiday with family...

What are you knitting at the moment?

Hello Heidi,
I live in South Africa and was wondering if you could advise me on which wool to use when making Lollo Bear, I understand that I should use 4ply but which brands would you recommend?

Hi Shane :)
The best place to get the yarn I use for my designs is from Colourspun. Dana (the owner) can dye up any colors you would like and posts locally...here is her website:

www.colourspun.com

She knows exactly which yarns I use...it's the sock-weight supertwist. It's a 100% merino, locally produced, superwash yarn...really soft and lovely and easy to work with...
