I love love love your latest creation, Judy! And I love love love WIGGLES yarn! Where in the world did you find it?
Well, I'll google it later! I think the little bits of WIGGLE colorettes add all the charm in the world! At first, I expanded the photo to look closely at what you'd done! I thought, "OH MY, has Judy added hand-embroidery, too? If so, I wonder what special stitch it is?" (I'm not an embroiderer!)

Well, all in all, the little bits of color look like a field of itty bitty springtime flowers!

This is a MASTERPIECE! I'm in love!

Now, off to google that yarn.....

Thanks ArtLady. The little 'wiggles' do look a lot like embroidered bullion stitches in different colors. I notice the skein says hand wash and it is acrylic. I hadn't noticed that. :-( Maybe it is because the 'wiggles' can get snagged on things. Maybe if it was washed in a lingerie bag it would be all right.

I got the yarn several years back at the variety store near Safeway in Chelan. Does TLC still make it? Were you able to find any?

I found some online, but the WIGGLES I found is Red Heart.
Found some on Ebay, too. Joann.com, too, but they say it's sold out at this time.

Yes, putting it in a lingerie bag, washing on gentle cycle with coolish warm water, lay flat to dry, that should be ok.

ArtLady,

The Wiggles I have is TLC but I think that is the same thing as Red Heart really. The skein says Coats and Clark, and when I did a search for "Coats and Clark yarn" the page that came up was for Red Heart, TLC and Moda-Dea. I think they are all made by the same people. Here is a link to a page with the TLC Wiggles, just like mine. LINK

Thanks for the vote for the lingerie bag for the washing.
