    Oh my heavens! I think the folks who can answer these questions are truly “yarnies.” I will say that #7 looks like something I used recently and if it is then the color is “Fruit Punch” but I’m clueless about the brand – I do think it is Red heart, but beyond that I am clueless. Now it is really bothering me that the wrappers are off of these balls of yarn, so can you just assure me that you’ve put the wrappers back on now. You might need to refer to that info later!

  24. Yarn 1 – looks like starbella
    Yarn 2 – looks like red heart soft
    Yarn 3 – looks like red heart super saver not sure of the color name
    Yarn 4 – looks like I know it but can’t think of the name
    Yarn 5 – looks like again I know it but I have not had the pleasure of getting to use it.
    Yarn 6 – is red heart neon I think
    Yarn 7 – I don’t know
    Yarn 8 – is possibly the super saver and the with love.
    Yarn 9 – looks similar to hometown USA
    Yarn 10 – not sure
    Yarn 11 – red heart team spirit
    Yarn 12 – I don’t know either

    Did not cheat and Google lol I don’t think I did very well lol

  25. Molly says:

    Yarn 1 -sashay yarn
    Yarn 2 – vanna’s choice
    Yarn 3 – a red heart skein
    Yarn 4 -this looks like cotton probably sugar and cream
    Yarn 5 – I remember this from the crocadile stitch tutorial umm boniquet or something…
