I love living in my rural small town. We have just enough conveniences to feel like we aren’t missing out, but still have a lovely small-town feel. I admit, I prefer the city with its hustle and bustle and things to do everywhere, all the time, but we are definitely happy here. That being said, we don’t have a Hobby Lobby, which is not great. When we lived in Arizona several years ago, there was a Hobby Lobby down the street and I was very happy to spend a lot of time there (hubby –not so much). When they contacted me about trying out their Yarn Bee line of yarn, I was exited (to say the least) to have an excuse to make a special trip to Hobby Lobby in “the big city”. This yarn worked out perfectly for my new Crocheted Pocket Scarf. Can’t wait to try it out when we go look at Christmas lights next week!
Can a photo show how squishy yarn is?
While editing, I was looking for the “enhance deliciously soft” filter and couldn’t seem to find one! So you will have to trust me on this one because my photos aren’t quite doing it justice.
I am a bit of a sucker for Robin’s Egg Blue, (Yarn Bee is named Aqua), so I had to use it to make my scarf. It goes beautifully with the Mango and Gray, don’t you think? (I am also a sucker for a grapefruit-ish coral color)
This pattern worked up easily and quickly (you know I love that), and I had a new, cozy and comfy scarf in just a few hours. Check out this gorgeous sheen. Are you drooling yet?
Get the pattern in the Hobby Lobby Think Big project book!
As I was working with it, I couldn’t help but think that ALL my chunky patterns could (and probably should) be make with this silky and lux yarn. This Almost 30 Minute cowl would be wonderful made in Yarn Bee True Colors! And of course this Chunky Ribbed Scarf as well, mixing two colors. I bought extra yarn, so I am deciding which pattern to go with. Even this Chunky V-stitch would be gorgeous made with Yarn Bee.
