Big News!!

OK, quick bit of news here. Yesterday the girls and I stopped by the craft store, and what did I see next to the Cascade 220??

Cotton Ease.

I know I have been out of it for a while. I am busy crocheting the world's most tedious baby blanket. Taking forever...but the baby could come any day now, so onward we crochet.

Still, you think I would have heard some fanfare about its return. I am not in that much of a bubble.

The official site: http://www.lionbrand.com/cgi-bin/yarnInfo.cgi?yarnPage=1694582 At the store it was about $4.50. I don't remember the old price, but the colors seem better.

I really wanted some of the lime and violet, but held off. I am behind on projects as it is.

Has anyone else spotted it?

Oh, and a total side note...someone asked about the color of our dining room walls...it is one of the Behr colors-“rain washed”. We love it, matches everything. They have a fun paint matcher online:


It is so much fun to play with colors...I actually use it a bit to match up yarn colors...why don't any of the yarn companies offer something like this for their lines?? I could spend hours playing with the colors.

Thanks for all the kind comments about the Piggle Hat on Knitty.com...this has been one of the most exciting things to happen around here lately.
