    I am blessed with the husband I have. He to can come up with color combinations I would never have put together but the project looks awesome when done. I discovered his gift the year I was stuck in the house due to cancer treatment and I would send him to the store to get me some yarn telling him to get something that looked good.(. I just celebrated 4 years without reaccurance! Our 7th anniversary this summer.)

    I just love Dan’s color combos. I work mostly with variegated yarns because I don’t like my combos, but Dan always has a set that I like. Thanks for your creativity

    Yes, Caron Simply Soft (my second favorite yarn) and Lion’s Homespun (my favorite). I like making afghans, but I get bored with just one color. Homespun is great for afghans, but I have so much trouble figuring how to mix & match the tweeded colors. Diva Dan, please help!

    As Kathleen said, Amazing color coordinates. Love them. I’m always very critical of my colors. Red heart yarn is my #1 choice when crocheting, but I tend to change once in a while to Vanna White’s yarn. It’s softer for babies/ The colors Diva made are spectacular. Nice matches. I just printed the “chart” out for my reference when I go to different projects. Thanks Diva Dan.

    Thank you Diva Dan!!!! Love all the color combos. I can see them being used in not only in crocheting, but in redoing a living space. I like purples. I can see my bathroom in the Lilac Garden or Lavender Fields or Lavender Potpourri. All are so very nice. Thank you too Mikey and Cathy for all your hard work for the Crochet Crowd This site/group is very inspirational in my crocheting and in my life.

    The color combinations are great once again! Question: is there a way the picture of the color combos can be larger? I can hardly see the names of each color. Just asking. Thanks!

    Lion Brand Heartland. Each individual color is beautiful, but there aren’t many light colors, so it’s hard to see how to mix multiples other than any color with the beigey color.

        Thanks for the link! They don’t carry this line at Walmart and I hardly ever go to Michael’s. It’s pricey but I can use it for personal projects. It has gorgeous colors.

    We will all be suggesting our favorites, but Bernat Super Value and Vanna’s Choice would cover a bit of ground in yarn feel, not pricey, and generally available.

      Oh yes! I meant to say Caron Simply Soft but said Super Soft instead. I guess because I always think “this yarn is so super soft”.

    Red Heart with Love would be great. There are a lot of colors, it’s affordable, and feels much softer than the Super Saver line.

    Caron Super Soft would be great too for the same reasons. The yarn is very soft,
