Some of the collection includes this Christmas Glitter yarn.
A few years ago, during an after Christmas sale at Michaels, I picked this yarn up in red, white, and varigated Christmas colors. The yarn has a strand of silver metallic "yarn" that runs through it and when it catches the light, it glitters.
I'm using the red to make a Christmas hat and matching scarf.
The brim of the hat uses Paton's Cha Cha in white.
I started the hat during a class demo at Michaels last Sunday. The yarn caught the eye of one of the customers and she asked where to find it. I had to tell her that we no longer sell it....but I had a suggestion of how to replicate the glitz and glitter of the yarn. This knitter loved the suggestion, so I thought you might like to know too.
Purchase a spool of DMC Metallic Thread
...or DMC's Light Effects Thread
Hold a strand of the thread with your yarn while knitting. You'll get the same effect.
I hope this little suggestion is helpful to you too.
