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.

One for him

I finally made a scarf for my hubby. When I was buying the yarn for his the beautiful green yarn just “fell” into my cart. So I made ‘just one more’ scarf for myself. I made my hubby’s with Caron Simply Soft. It feels so silky and I love the texture that placing the stitches in the back gave this ripple pattern.

I enjoy making scarves because .. well.. I love scarves! Also it gives me a chance to try out different stitches.
