Red Heart Sweet and Yarn Off Winner!

How much fun was the second round of the Yarn Off challenge? Thank you all for taking the time to vote!

Before we talk winners, lets talk GORGEOUS yarn!



Red Heart Sweet is a #7 Jumbo yarn made up of 100% polyester. There's 7oz (200g)/89yds (81m) per ball, which goes a long way. It only comes in 8 colors, but they are all beautiful! This yarn is really thick, but very soft and squishy. Projects work up fast, however, this yarn does require a larger hook (P/Q).
**Note: The yarn label says this is a #7 Jumbo yarn, but the website says #6 Super Bulky. 

This yarn can fall apart easily, so here's a tip to prevent this: 
After you fasten off, slide some of the chenille off the tip, until there is approximately 1.5" of thread exposed, tie a double knot into this thread (one knot over the other) as close to the chenille as you can get, and then trim the excess thread.
