Maybe it makes me a total geek, but I swear, having a big bag of the most scrumptious, soft, fluffy Caron yarn…
well…it makes my heart pound right out of my chest. In fact, I get a little endorphin rush every time I walk past it, and see it all just sitting there, waiting for me to do something with it.
No, it didn’t take long. I fell into the smooth wavy ripple again, only this time, the project is twice the size as the last one. A grown-up blanket that needs to be finished before a certain girly-girl does that…wedding thing.
So, along with all the lists and assignments and check marks and schedules and crazy excitement that comes with a daughter getting married, this gift of mama-love has a ticking clock attached to it.
Lucky for me the peaceful, soothing rhythm–the waves of 4 up and 4 down, over and over, times a million–make this the perfect de-stressing therapy for my silly little soul.
So, in those taking-a-break moments—and sometimes they are just moments–you can be sure that this pretty thing will be in my hands, warming my lap, not to mention my heart.
After all, it’s for my baby girl.
And I have a schedule to keep.

I LOVE mine. It’s on my bed nearly every night lately. xoxo
We should take a picture of it. That one was a longggg time ago but it was so fun!
Beautiful yarn. Is it cotton or acrylic? It’s shiny so I am assuming acrylic, but then what do I know?
It’s 100% acrylic. The Caron Simply Soft Eco uses recycled bottles in their processing–which I didn’t know. I’d like to see how it feels because I haven’t found an equal to how soft the regular “Simply Soft” is. They aren’t kidding–it’s incredible.
@Launi, Do you order the yarn online or do you get it locally?
JoAnn’s and Walmart for the regular. JoAnn’s for the Eco type. I LOVE it. :}
I just love this pattern and the colors as well! You do such awesome work! 😀 I love all the prizes you’ve made me and I’m always amazed to see what creation you’re working on now!
Thank you Mom for doing this! I love it and am so excited to see it when it is done! Love you 😀
