What do you call your yarn balls? Do you know of another ball or hank type that I’ve missed? I LOVE hearing from you guys.

For my part I was surprised with donut-ball and cake – even I realize that there are some difference ;o)

My beautiful orchid in a bloom… such inspiration and pure eye candy!!

I wish to find a yarn company that would offer such a choice of shades of green and pink, or better to say – a palette as DMC threads have ;o)

Have a wonderful and lovely weekend!!

Yarn Talk | Premier® Yarns Cotton Fair®

 s-l1600

If you new to my blog, I want to introduce you Yarn Talk (formed “Featured Yarn”) category. Yarn Talk is a category about everything about yarn… favorite kinds, new yarn finds, weights and substitutes, storage, etc.

I recently had the pleasure of trying Premier® Yarns Cotton Fair® Solids Yarn for the very first time and it is fantastic to work with. This is a fine weight yarn and the fiber content is a mix of cotton and acrylic; making it durable, soft and light weight. Cotton Fair® Yarn is very easy to crochet with and the stitches slide smoothly along your hook. Can’t wait to show you my newest blanket and some fall/winter accessories made with this lovely yarn!
