Tweed for this Yarn Addict

I recently noticed some beautiful tweed yarns available at my local craft store, and lo and behold, it's from one of my favorite yarn brands ever -- Caron Simply Soft!  I was elated to find both a brownish, taupe tweed, and a creamy off-white tweed.  Some of my favorite colors are earthy tones (umber, ochre, sienna, beige, cream, tan)... So of course, I had to splurge and buy a couple of skeins that day. ;)

Here's what was in my shopping bag!

Boy, was I thrilled to begin a project with these!  I knew I wanted to use both colors together, and decided on designing a stuffed animal.

As always, I love working with Caron Simply Soft, because they sure are simply soft (hehe).  It doesn't hurt that they come in so many different colors (great for designers like me who love to experiment!) and are one of the most affordable acrylic yarns for the amount of yardage that you get!

I'm still working on this little guy, so I hope to follow up with some more photos later.  Thank you so much for reading!

Warm wishes,
