New Shawl

So here’s what you can make with Caron Cake yarn (yeah, my picture takin still sucks :-P)…


Youngest dd has already swiped this one, so nope, it’s not for sale! But I do have another skein just like this one, so there may be a chance one might be for sale by Thanksgiving or so.

So,how I made this… Here is the pattern.  The Caron Cake color is Rainbow Sprinkles. One ball Alllllmost made a full shawl. That purple on the edging is Red Heart in the color Amethyst. I was thinking of maybe doing the edge in white or black, seeing how rainbow color would go great with both of those. But then looking in the yarn bucket I saw the deep purple and just went with that! No need breaking into a whole nother skein of Cake yarn when I only had eight rows left to do.

Now I’m working on one in Lemon Lime colorway. This morning I saw that JoAnn stores have a new yarn line called Sweet Rolls! Just like these, but so many colors! I don’t think they did as great a job as Caron at their colors though. Theirs go like peach, pink, cream, and not as much of the wild range in the colors as Cake. But still a wonderful bunch of new choices of color combos!

Anyway, off of here to cook dinner. Cream of broccoli soup tonight! The weathers gettin cooooooold! Not going out of the mid 60’s for the next five days, and a couple of nights in the low 30’s coming up! Glad I have my yarn and pointy sticks! 🙂
