A Scrumptious new year round throw
When Red Heart Yarns released their new Amore yarn, I HAD to try it. Just feeling the skein in the store made me clear the shelves (and I'm not joking!). Mind you, the shelves weren't very full of this yarn so I had to keep checking for more each time I went to town. It took some time to get the amount of yarn I wanted for a few different designs but the wait was SO worth it! If you haven't tried Red Heart Amore yet, don't wait any longer. It is so soft and flexible and comfy and feels like butter to work with.

The Wrapped in Ribbon Blanket is great for year round use! Using the Amore yarn, it drapes nicely and is comfy cozy for cool summer evenings. Using other 4ww yarns (as seen below) make this wonderfully warm for winter too.
