Love this yarn !! – A Quick Caron Cakes Review

I can’t remember where I first read about this yarn but when I found it at my local Michaels I was thrilled.

It works as beautifully as promised and the texture is wonderful !!! So soft and inviting.

I am a little behind on my posting. I made this scarf when I purchased my first ball of this delicious yarn Fall 2016.

I have several other projects on the go; one of which I have a deadline for so I must be strong. I want to go buy lots more of this yarn and just create. I don’t know what yet but the yarn is such a pleasure to work with that I just look forward to having it in my hands and on my hook!

It is a special yarn available only at Michaels. I’m hoping they continue this yarn and offer it everywhere. Just in case I may have to go buy a few balls for future projects. I am kicking myself for not doing that when it was on special last month!!

 

edit: This yarn due to popular demand is continued into 2017 (It was a special Caron “birthday” yarn.)  The colour for this scarf, Lemon Lime, is one of the shades that were discontinued.

#CreativePeopleProblems ~ The error

While I enjoy challenges and variety in my crochet projects my all time favourite projects are baby blankets. No matter how straight forward of a design they always feel special.

I was happy to create this blanket for a lady at work who is eagerly expecting her a sister for her son.  Having lots of blue and neutral blankets already, she asked for a pink and white blanket. She was thrilled when I gave it to her last week.

If she wasn’t due soon I wouldn’t have given it to her. I was that tempted to either undo the whole thing or make a new one.  As I was taking photos so I could share my work I saw IT.

Arrrr I must have used a different hook when I started this blanket. That’s all I can see every time I look now.  #creativepeopleproblems
