Taking advantage of those before-Christmas sales is loads of fun! I’m getting inspired to do new projects and stocking up for later. Check out the yarn and tools I got from JoAnn’s.
Lion Brand: Touch of Alpaca (in Blush and Cream), Amazing Lace (in Cranberry and Eggplant)
Paton’s: Delish (in Squash)
Bernat: Fleurettes (in Harvest)
Clover: Extra-Large Pom-Pom Maker
Chiaogoo: Flexible Tunisian Hook 4mm
So far, I’ve made good use of the Lion Brand Touch of Alpaca in Blush. I crocheted up this Artfully Simple Infinity Scarf and an ear-warmer as a Secret Santa gift. I would definitely recommend this free pattern if you’re looking for a quick, easy, and lovely gift. You can use any yarn, but I’m really happy about the way this turned out. The Touch of Alpaca yarn is soft and luxurious, but still machine washable (score!) and affordable. I love this soft pink color, too.
I have some ideas for the other yarn. Adding them to my long list…. 🙂
