New Michaels Yarn!!!
So last month Michaels did a reset on yarn, meaning the new stuff came out, unfortunately I have been avoiding that section because I can’t afford to buy any yarn until I start selling some things or booking more classes LOL. However, I needed a pillow form for a sample project for class and… well… okay, hey the pillow forms are right by the yarn ya know! So needless to say I peeked and was so excited to see the new Loops & Threads Elegance and Glamorous, both so very cool (see pics 🙂 ) each in their own way. Oh, and these are Michaels Brands so booyah Michaels! Living here in Florida I would have screamed if I saw another Thick and Chunky added without introducing a warmer weather friendly counterpart.
Of course I also had to check on the Patons Metallic to make sure it didn’t go anywhere (it’s also on my wish list and has been for a while). Still there! This stuff makes me think of Lion Brands Microspun (which I love so very much and is perfect for Florida’s heat). Metallic has a silky smooth, non-fuzzy feel and is in these crazy cool metallic looking colors that would be perfect for the Fall-Winter Holidays coming up. Of course I would prefer it to be made into a lacy sweater for over a tank top because that’s how I roll.
