I received A Box of Yarn From 
 It contained 
awesome, squishy and soft,
 Bulky yarns called
Go look at all the color combinations!
 I want them all.
This is one of 
Red Heart Yarns New yarns.
Check out this
that explains all about it.
And in a few words,
 I Love working with bulky yarns.
But this yarn was so 
wonderful to work with.
Soft yes, Squishy, yes, 
but also it had a silky feel to it.
It make a warm and 
comfy item to wear, 
but not heavy at all.

I absolutely loved how the colors
 blended together, also.
They are mix and match yarns that 
the colors and textures work together.

After, playing with this fun yarn for a bit,
 I decided to make a warm comfy hood.
And I Love the hood I designed too.

Wrap C3 around your four fingers 20 times,
With a 10 inch piece of C2, slip yarn through the loops,
And firmly tie the center of the loops.
Trim pompom even and attach to the end of the tie.

Oh and.......

If you slide the hood down on your shoulders,
 it becomes a lovely warm cowl.

but not this time.
I Love it too much.
I hope you will too.
