Tis the Season to be Knotty & Nice

 In Anders Ruff Workshop News, DIY Projects, Home Decor, Lifestyle

We’re being knotty again this winter with Lion Brand Yarn!

Y’all, I’ve got puns for days and I’m not even sorry about it.

If you were a part of our ever growing DIY family last year, you’ll recall the excitement over our Chunky Knit Blanket workshops and you probably even made your own. Even if you’re new here, you’ve seen the posts from your local AR Workshop and everyone else sharing their own blankets!



Partnering up with Lion Brand yarn was a total no brainer. It was the perfect way to make this season’s chunky knits that much more amazing. They even let us pick our colors! It’s a super cozy chenille that’s perfect for a warm & stylish blanket. The best part? You don’t even need knitting needles or a crochet hook!

If you’ve never knit before, I get it. It looks more intimidating than it is! But, have we ever steered you wrong when it comes to DIY? We’ve got this fool proof method down to a science!


This time WE got to choose the colors!

Which color is your favorite?


I’m in love with the Eucalyptus, but I made a candy cane stripe blanket with Pomegranate Seed & Feather for Maureen that I might have to replicate for myself.  I’m of the opinion that I need at least one chunky knit for every room in my house!

Keep an eye out for your favorite color combos on our VIP Facebook page!



If our Chunky Knits have convinced you to take up knitting a little more seriously, make sure to check out all of the other amazing Lion Brand Yarns! I just got THIS BOOK yesterday from one of my favorite makers and she’s got me obsessed with Lion Brand’s Go For Faux!
