Let’s Buy Some New Yarn

Hello blog friends.  

Happy April and April Fools Day!

It's been a while since I've bought some new yarn.  I'd love to share with you my new haul.

I went shopping in the Michael's store last month (when it was safe to shop).  I bought four skeins of Caron Latte Cakes yarn.  The yarn was regularly priced at $9.99 a skein, and I got mine on clearance for $2.97 a skein.  🧶

The yarn comes in 15 different colors.  Below are the four skeins of yarn I bought.  

I was so excited to get started working on a project with my new yarn.

I started the knit scarf using size US 11 knitting needles and cast on 20 stitches.  I made a ribbing of Knit 2, Purl 2 for each row and the yarn is ROSE-SCENTED. 

UPDATE:  I ripped out the knitted scarf three times because I didn't like the way the scarf was coming out.  I decided to crochet the scarf instead.  Crocheting with yarn comes out so much faster than knitting.  When I crochet it doesn't make my wrist hurt for some reason as it does with knitting. 

In the photos below, you can see how I started the crochet scarf.  I can't wait to see how the color pattern will look.  :) 

I used a US size K crochet hook and crocheted the half double crochet stitch.

I will have the details soon and the pattern to crochet your own scarf.

Have you bought any new yarn lately?  Are you working on any new knit or crochet projects?
