I am excited to be part of The Crochet Crowd team. I have been crocheting for 40+ years. I am also a big geek and an internet addict. I met Mikey and Diva Dan while onboard a crochet cruise in March 2015, and the rest is history. I hope to help inspire fellow crocheters.

    I’ve seen a couple questions about substituting different yarn, but I’ve found to get the best result you really want to use the Bernat Blanket yarn. When I tested these balloons out (https://youtu.be/DCZBI5VXnpc), I found even a knock-off polyester yarn similar to Bernat Blanket was far inferior when it came to absorbency and softness. Another thing I’ll add, in case anyone is wondering, is older kids seem to enjoy these too. In the link I’m sharing, I tested these out with kids ranging from 3-12, and even the older ones had fun playing with them. Hope this helps anyone who still had some questions!
