First Ever Shipment of Yarn!


Dear fellow crocheters,

I just received my very first online shipment of yarn ordered from Lionbrand.com

You might not know this, but I've never actually ordered from an online yarn store before!  I'm accustomed to getting my yarns in-person at physical stores, where I can see and feel the yarns before purchase.  However, there are only so many brands and colors that physical stores can carry, and I really yearned for the beautiful variations of yarns that I saw on Lion Brand's website that I couldn't find in stores!

Thus, I was totally ecstatic to receive this big, Lion Brand box of yarns!!

I was so pleasantly surprised to see how beautiful these skeins were in-person!  I thought they were plenty pretty on my monitor, but they're even more gorgeous sitting in front of me! 

Of course, photos won't do them justice, but I want to show you the types and colors that I selected!

Colors: Vanilla Bean, Bubble Gum, Strawberry, Cotton Candy, Blueberry

Color: Carousel
Color: Providence Pink

What I also love about these yarns is that they're so incredibly soft and plush.  They feel simply heavenly.  I'm in love!!

And as always, I'd love to hear from YOU!
  • Do you typically buy yarns in-store or online?
  • What are your favorite brands/colors to work with?
  • Have you tried these awesome "Ice Cream" yarns from Lionbrand?! 
  • Got ideas on what I should make next? Let me know!

Wishing you all a blessed day!
