A Tale of Two Yarns – 2KCBWDAY1

If you are knitting or crocheting you will know already that on of the most important factor for your projects is what else, the yarn you use! I am literally in love with yarns!
There are so many favorite types, colors, feelings.. aaaah I could be writing for hours.!
There are yarns of soft hand and comfortable feeling or more hard and “clumsy”, I particularly love the fluffiness or bulkiness in yarns.
So the thing is I never really pay attention to what brand my yarn is, looking through all my yarns I realized that most of them (if not all of them…) are “naked” I don't really hold onto their tags.

So this is a story of this adored pink yarn with which I made a lovely cabled shaped scarf. I kind of remember it had a name like candy-pink candy something.
It was fluffy, for big sized needles and I simply haven't seen anything like it before!
It was a day with my sister when I first saw it and I was quite disappointed to know that not only was there only one ball left in the shop but it was also really ….expensive.
I was in love!
After a day or two , I went back and bought it!
As I always do, many weeks passed until I started thinking of what I could do with it.!
And finally I decided ! So i was searching for an easy scarf pattern for my lovely pink candy yarn and i bumbed into this great free project in Stich DC blog. (of course one ball was not enough for the size I wanted and is now in my unfinished projects…)

love-ly pink candy yarn

Another yarn I really love is the kangaroo flamet (30% wool, 70% acrylic) which is really nice to handle, it comes in many combination of colors but the one I used is the pink-blue-purple one!
It's really soft and bulky and it's size changes as you go!
