It's Mardi Gras!

I have had this Question asked me several times lately, 
so I decided to do a little investigating.
"What is the difference between The Caron Cakes Yarn, 
The Sweet Roll Yarn, and the Bernat Pops Yarn, and
 the New Mandala yarn cakes?"

How to make my own "Yarn Cakes".
I have been making these cakes for many
 years using my left over yarns. 
It's a great way to mix and match your yarns 
and come up with new color combinations.

See a Video Demonstration on my Youtube Channel at This LINK
Choose 3 or four colors of yarn, and 
separate them into .50 oz. balls.
If you have a yarn winder begin winding the first color.
 When you are almost to end of the first color,
join the new color by using the Russian join, 
and continue winding.
Repeat this until you have made your cakes.
My Yarn winder only makes small cakes, 
so mine are more the size of the Sweet rolls.

If you do not own a Yarn Winder, 

you can do the same thing, only wind it into
 toilet Paper Rolls.
