Yarn Madness

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

But I discovered that Michaels is carrying a yarn that is EXACTLY the same!! The colors are different, but if you loved that totally cool Confetti texture, this is it.




It’s Patons Pooch. I love it!! Michaels has quite the yarn selection these days. That’s awesome.

    Hi…I noticed you like the Patons Pooch yarn. I just bought a lot..it was 2 bucks each at Michaels. I want to make a beanie cap/hat for a one year old…actually 2 of them …twins. I have pink and blue. But I don’t know how many stitches to cast on what size needles. I have torn it out 5 times! Can you help? I am a beginner ka-nitter!

    Jean – what I found with this yarn was that it makes a VERY loose fabric on its own. You will probably want to pair it with a worsted weight yarn to tighten up the fabric or else you will have a very stretchy hat. As for casting on… I would find a pattern for a hat using bulky weight yarn, as that is essentially what you will have with one strand of pooch and one strand of worsted weight. Good luck!

    Not sure if people are still missing this yarn -BUT I just found another company selling this exact yarn in MANY MORE COLORS than before.

    http://www.trims-things.com/products/fancyknittingyarns.html

    Click on STYLE ANGOLA and then about 12 colors come up. Runs $3.00 per ball and balls are only about 27 yards so be sure to buy enough just in case.

    Hope I made someone happy !!!

    Hi,

    I am a Pooch addict! Am on my third sweater. Knits perfectly on its own on 7.5mm needles. Looks adorable as childs hoodie/cardigan. Wish there were more patterns – It was a bit tedious coming up with my own (lots of frogging). But knits up superfast! Jen

    Don’t know if you know this but Michael’s has reduced tons of yarns by Bernat and Paton to $1.00 a ball. Check it out. (Yes, I work there. I applied becase of my yarn addiction.)

    Happy stitchin’!
