Hot Knit!

I *finally* had a chance to drive out to a JoAnn Fabric to check out the new yarn. Can you say “yippee!”?

The new JoAnn Sensations yarns are really, really great. I bought some Confetti to make a Christmas gift for a younger, female family member. I also bought some Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick and Patons Cha-Cha (an eyelash yarn like the LB Fun Fur) for another gift, to be knitted up on really big needles. I really like the Wool-Ease, and would love to have a big ol’ sweater made out of it, or (gasp) a trendy poncho. I have to hand it to JoAnn and Lion Brand — these days there is a great selection of excellent yarn for fairly reasonable prices. I love the yarn at honest-to-gosh yarn shops, but some of it is just soo expensive.

Anyway, it was a successful outing. Now I just have to knit like a fiend to have the two (admittedly easy) projects done by Christmas…

    I have checked at Jo-Ann Fabrics for Sensations Confetti yarn but it is not available. Where can I find this yarn?

    As far as I know they have discontinued it. Leaving me totally high and dry to finish the project I was working on! I’ve emailed Jo-Ann to ask that they bring it back!

    I made a scarf out of the sensations confetti for my mother this christmas. She loved it and wore it EVERYDAY. When her sister came to visit from out of town, she loved it SO much, that my mother asked me if she could give it to her, thinking that i could make her another one since she lives by me and my aunt doesn’t. My mother was CRUSHED to find out that the yarn is discontinued… and we would also LOVE for it to come back :-) so i hope it does. :-)

  4. [...] Hey, you remember my whining about JoAnn discontinuing their totally awesome Sensations Confetti yarn? Yeah, it was a real blow. [...]

    Purchased the Sensations 11 oz skein of yarn (Rainbow Boucle). Trying to find patterns for this yarn. What is the weight – worsted or bulky?
