Craft & Design Home Yarncraft

For the past few days, I’ve been doing demos and soaking up crafty awesomeness at the Craft & Hobby Association Winter 2012 Conference and Trade Show in Anaheim. Per usual, there have been tons of amazing events on the show floor. But, on Monday, Lion Brand Yarn rocked my fiber-loving socks off with their Lion Brand Winter 2012 CHA Fashion Show. There, the models walked an honest-to-god catwalk and sported a combination of Lion Brand Yarn patterns and creations from emerging designers, like this gorgeous dress from Elissa Eriksson.
Here are are a few more of my favorite designs from the show:


Sweater by emerging designer Gareth Brown.
Dress by emerging designer Lucy Faulke.

Gown by emerging designer Paula Cheng.

Dress by emerging designer Heather Orr.
There you have it, folks. I’m submitting this as definitive proof that yarn can be high fashion!
