Jan - I don't know how she does it - but its really neat. Its not an overpowering scent fresh out of the package...

I just can't decide what to make with mine.... and picking just 2 scents was SO HARD...

I was really :?? for awhile.

You probably meant "can't" - but you're halfway talked into trying it *giggle*

Aaah, but does carrot cake EVER smell like carrot? I don't think it would be as popular if it did! :rofling:

I read the about me page and it seems like she's using already dyed and skeined yarns and adding scent to them? A couple of them look REALLY close to Homespun and Divine, and the ones that look like Homespun are sold in exactly half the yardage as one storebought skein. Does anyone know? I'm only a little bit yarn snob, I just like to know what I'm buying. ;-) I am fortunate to have a little herb store locally that sells an enormous array of scented oils and aromatherapy products, and I think I might just have to try this myself anyway. Totally cool idea!

Thanks! :)

but you might drop her an email and ask? Can't hurt to ask, I guess 8)

i'm sure she would provide more info if i asked. i don't want her to think i would be stealing the idea to profit from, though, i would just do it for myself. You'll have to let us know if the scent disappears when it's washed or just subsides. I know she says it's for the knitter moreso the recipient. I can't imagine how they could get it in there that it stayed through washings, but I'm curious anyway. Thanks! :)
