~ good morning ~

 
There's a new board up on 'Did You Make That?' - stop by to add your link and maybe find a new blog to enjoy.
Remember, you can add any craft project that you have made.
It can be knitting, quilting, sewing, plastic canvas, wood working, jewelry making, gardening, baking - anything really - just as long as you made it. 
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
Does anyone know what brand of yarn this is?  I picked it up at AC Moore from their mill-ends section - it cost $6.99.
I've started working a baby blanket with it last night, and it is very soft and easy to work with.
 
 
Thanks for dropping by - I hope everyone has a great day.  :)

  1. Hi Debi! I don't know what kind of yarn that is (looks awesome, though) but my own favorite yarn ever was from that mill-ends bin at AC Moore! It is still a mystery to me what it is....but I am so glad I spotted it! :)

    1. Hi Amy - thanks for dropping in. I visited your blog and I'd like to follow you, but I couldn't find the 'follow' button. Could it be hiding somewhere and I just missed it? :)

    1. Hi Vikki. AC Moore is a favorite store of mine to wander around in. They cover all kinds of crafts and their yarn section is pretty big. Not like the Michaels craft store where they only have one aisle of yarn. :)

  3. That yarn is really pretty - wish we had AC Moore here in Arizona. How do I get to that "Did You Make That" place??

  4. Happy Sunday Mrs. Debi....nice looking yarn,I guess is not from USA.....may be that's the reason the package does not have the brand.Also could be leftovers from factories and then packing them like that....I like it , has a little look like some of the Red Heart for babies.It happens with ribbons also.
    I like your yarn.I wish I could find the store you are going,here in Texas ,where I live they don't have one....I wish.

    Happy Crocheting ! :)

  5. I wish we had an AC Moore here, too. The yarn is nice, the colors soft.

  6. Hi Debi, the yarn looks similar to Italia from Yarn Bee (see it here: http://www.ravelry.com/yarns/library/yarn-bee-italia). It was one of my favorites from them. I've made countless scarves with it, and still have a few skeins left that have been earmarked for some sofa pillows. Unfortunately it's been discontinued for a few years now. :(

  7. I just took another look. It's not what I thought it was. Italia is a roving type yarn and what you have there looks stranded... so now I'm stumped. If I come across anything like it I will let you know.

    Is there any manufacture info on the bag?

    1. Thanks for the help April. There's no manufacturer info on the bag - it just says that it's acrylic and polyester and it's made in Turkey. :)

  8. Lovely yarn. The blanket is going to look so colorful almost rainbowy.
