When I was in Walmart last week, I visited the yarn section to check for new yarn possibilities as I always do and found these cool Caron Cakes.
I'm a sucker for variegated yarn anyway but these are just delicious. I got several. They aren't perfect for bears because there is a little wool in them and machine washing/drying might not be the best for bear health but... I'm going to make a couple anyway.
Here's the first one. I'm now making another and the dark purple is up next it will go dark purple legs up to light purple head. As a bonus, the yarn is also very soft. (And was pretty darned cheap, too!)
There are a couple of errands I need to run today but nothing critical so I'm thinking none will actually get done. Plus, I can't leave now, my new computer may arrive at any minute! (Reality says it will be more like 7 or 8 pm tonight.) I have crafty things to keep me entertained while I wait.
