I’m very excited to bring this edition of the Yarn Discovery to you! I attended TNNA a week ago and had the opportunity to meet Marcy from Delicious Yarns. Her booth was adorable and immediately grabbed my attention! Marcy (pictured to the left) actually won first prize for the Most Creative Booth! I can certainly see why!
You really need to check out her site because it’s absolutely genius. She has 4 different categories of yarn with the names being Sweets, Sprinkles, Frosting and CB Sweets. The name of the yarn I used in this pattern is called Icing. Are you seeing the trend? Even down to the yarn label is perfection. See what I mean?
It’s so much fun to just read through the site looking at all the names. The Delicious yarns are sold in local yarn stores. If you want to check out if there is one near you, click HERE and it will take you to the listings broken down by state.
I really wanted to try the Delicious yarn and was excited when she gave me 2 skeins! On today’s Yarn Discovery, I’ll use one of the skeins and tell you a little about the yarn. You’ll love everything about it… (The second skein will make its way to blog at a later date) Before we get into the pattern, I would love for you to pop over to their Facebook page and tell them HI! Let them know you are visiting from ELK Studio!
I wanted this blog post to be as informative as it could be, so I asked my ELK Studio Crocheter’s Group some of the questions they would love to know about a yarn they had never used. Let me start with the specifications of the yarn first:
- 100 % Superwash Merino, Available in 5 different weights such as Fingering, Sport, Worsted, Aran and Chunky (I used Sweets Sport)
- 100 grams/310 yards
- Sport Weight
- Care Instructions: Handwash and lay flat to dry.
Now let’s talk about some of the other things you really want to know.
- Can you tell me about the texture of the yarn?
The texture is soft and the yarn is incredibly lightweight
- How far will one skein take you in a project?
I’m not used to making most projects with only one skein of yarn, so I needed to be a little creative. The project measures 60″ x 4 1/2″ which is a really great length for a scarf!
- What do you think is the best type of projects for the yarn?
Wow! Of course you can see the yarn works up beautifully designed in a scarf, but it would also be wonderful with any type of sweater or cute tunic too!
- What did you like best about the yarn?
I loved the feel of the yarn. It’s so soft and lightweight that you will hardly know it’s there. It’s perfect for a really feminine look especially the yarn color I was given. The perfect blending of the yarn keeps the eye wandering throughout the pattern too. Overall, I was very pleased with the finished project and would definitely use the yarn again.
Now…..let’s get on to the pattern right?
