Yarn Albums Showcase
Photo albums of some of the HeartStrings pattern sample models organized by yarn manufacturer
The Yarn Albums Showcase presents a selection of the HeartStrings knitted samples organized by manufacturer of the yarns in which the models were made. These photo albums present some, but not all, of the key yarn manufacturers with which Jackie E-S partners.
Although HeartStrings pattern instructions are and will continue to be yarn-brand-generic, these online photo albums allow you to navigate easily to patterns that have been made in some of the yarns from specific manufacturers. Keeping the albums continues to be a work-in-progress! Another good grass-roots source for seeing the yarn that other knitters are using for HeartStrings design is Ravelry.
If you are a knitter, this may inspire you to try a new yarn. Or to see how a yarn you like to use might look made up in various HeartStrings patterns.
If you are a retailer, this additional way of organizing around the yarns used in sample models will make it convenient for you to see how HeartStrings patterns extend the pattern support of yarns you stock. You might even become interested in bringing in a new yarn line because you see the appeal in it presented through a HeartStrings pattern design.
If you are a yarn manufacturer and are interested in the possibility of your yarns being showcased in upcoming HeartStrings knitting patterns, please write or call Jackie E-S.
