Where Do I Get the YARN for This Project???

This is one of the most frequent questions I am asked. And I'm sorry to say, the bottom line answer to the question is: You can't. It took me 3 months searching every catalog and yarn store I could get my hands on to find exactly the right colors to get the effect I wanted for this creation: the effect of sunlight streaming through ancient stained glass. For a number of years you could still get the main colors needed using Red Heart yarn. But as of the date of this writing (summer 2020) I can no longer find their “wedgewoods ombre” available anywhere. So, I am constantly re-evaluating what is available that would give me that sunlight-through-old-stained-glass look. Of course, there's nothing to say that you can't pick out your own set of colors, to match your decor! I recently saw a FABULOUS interpretation of my pattern in turquoise and coral. Check it out: I *love* it! Good luck, and let me know how they turn out!
