Working on finishing the Granny Squares Jill put me up to.

Then I will dabble in making an afghan stitched scarf in a puzzle pattern for a friend....
Ravelry: Autism Awareness Scarf pattern by Issa Garrison

Contemplating if the Super saver yarn is worthy for this...or 'with love' since it is a little bit softer (not by much though)

Use the "With love", it is a little softer, plus it worked or will for the hat I just finished. I just started another one using a different brand, and it's a bit thinner of a 4, but it's super soft. I check tonight and let you know the brand name.

There is one brand at the store (not yarn store nor craft specific), I think Caron? That stuff seems super soft, but also quite pricy. I would love to find some more natural selections, but I think I would have to go and find the one yarn shop in the county.

Or I could by the reflective yarn! :) I bet that would be striking!

We have some amazing yarn shops here in Spain (I love the brand Katia), but I've seen a lot of blogs and forums where people order their yarn online. It's apparently even easier and cheaper to do from the US. :) I love both projects!

I just found the wrapper from the yarn I was talking about. It's Lion Brand Yarns: Heartland. It's really soft, and pretty easy to work with. I have already started my second hat with it. I hope this helps.

Ohh, that's super soft! Maybe a little fat though. :)

Caron Super Soft....'The Store' by the house sells it for over 6 dollars a skein...the Craft store (that isn't close by) has it on sale for 3....what is WRONG with that picture!:mad:

I like simply soft but it gets fuzzy easily (not that all yarns don't), and I have also had LOTS of uneven skeins, either fraying or large texture issues within the skein. Not always a great yarn. I like red heart soft a lot better than simply soft :)

I think I will visit the yarn shop. Need to find some nice soft yarn for some beginner projects for my girl scouts. I want them to learn how to crochet (maybe knit as well) and have some easy projects with charitable goal for them: Making small blankets for infants, then maybe more involved stuff like hats or booties...so far we are still working on chain stitch though....anyhow, I want something as fat as Super Saver, but softer, and in baby colors....you would figure that would not be such a tall order!

I can't wait to weave in the ends.
No, not really.

I found what to do with the two extra squares: A purse! :cool:

Pictures to follow.

The blanket:

(like I said: 'I can't wait to weave in the ends' said no one ever...)

And the leftovers



I am going to make a liner, can't decide between button or zipper yet though

The varigated yarn with the red makes it a little busy, but all in all, it looks decent! Now I need to weave in those million ends :smow:
