Yarn for Beach/Market Tote and Chevron Blanket

Monday, July 14, 2014

I am SO excited to make these two projects! One reason is because I bought some really pretty colored yarn for them, and two, I have never made anything with cotton yarn! Is that weird?! I went searching online trying to decide between Lion Brand Cotton-Ease or Lily Sugar n' Cream and I came upon a GREAT deal for Creme-de-la-Creme by Red Heart.

Aren't they so pretty?! The best price I could find on them was at Walmart and what I love about Walmart is that you can ship-to-store for free! I mean, can you really beat $1.91-$2.12 for 125 yards? I did get suspicious so I read some of the reviews, and there were some negative ones. Most of them were having knots in the skein, thinner yarn than they thought and people thinking there was going to be more yardage.. I then thought to myself, "That's why it's so cheap!" When I started looking at other cotton yarn brands, I did not like the colors and got discouraged. So I started looking up other reviews on the creme de la creme yarn. I found these two sites(MadMadMeBeverly's) and I felt excited about the yarn all over again and bought it! I bought 4 skeins of each color hoping I'll have some left over for more projects to come :) I really hope I have a good experience with this yarn(fingers crossed!) Have you tried this yarn? Let me know your thoughts on it.

These are the patterns I am going to make out of my new yarn!!!

The only bad thing is I have to wait for a week to get the yarn which is the time I should be having my baby boy :( But while we wait, which two colors should I make the tote out of?! I can't decide!
