I was so excited when I arrived at our local Michael's last week to see they had gotten a shipment of the new Caron Cakes in stock.
For those of you that following on social media, they have been releasing new yarns this year in celebration of 100 years of yarn! I was SO excited to see the Cakes line because, 1. Who doesn't like cake? and 2. The colors are just beautiful!
I grabbed a ball of Funfetti and started a small granny square blanket. I was surprised of how soft the yarn was, it was cushy and cozy to work with. I was even able to crochet and watch my daughter play in the sandbox.
I realized fast that I was going to either need more yarn OR I could let this be a small carseat blanket for a baby. So I decided to leave it at one ball of yarn and a cozy small blanket for a baby that is due to arrive any day.
What I enjoyed the most about it was how bright and fun the colors were as well crisp and easy transitions between the colors. Although sometimes the transitions were in the middle of a row, when you look at the blanket you can hardly tell that is the case.
All in all. If you have not had the chance to try out the new Caron Cakes yarn please do! Its totally worth a trip to the craft store!!
