Caron Super Soft Shadows
I managed to make a run to Hobby Lobby late this afternoon. I've been doing the Irish Hiking Scarf in a cheapo practice yarn and I like the look of it so much I wanted to buy some nicer yarn to make one as a keeper.

After looking at and fondling what they had, which wasn't much as the last sale had cleaned them out of a lot of stuff, I settled on the Caron Simply Soft Shadows in a nice green color.

I've already started a new scarf with it and so far I really like this yarn. It feels really good and is easy to work with. I also think it's going to look really good.

I really like Caron Simply Soft. I've made two Irish Hiking Scarfs, one with black, and the other tan (one for my husband, and the other for my dad), both with the Simply Soft yarn. They turned out really nice.

I've not tried the Shadows, but I love their regular Simply Soft. I've made several projects from it, and they've all turned out well & been greatly appreciated.

Let us know how it works out, Mason. I was going to use SS to make a few for Christmas presents.

Shadows is a little thicker than the regular SS, but very nice to work with and the colors are great too.

I can't wait to see a photo of this one, when you are done!
That yarn is pretty intriguing to me, I may attempt this one myself. I've been admiring that pattern for awhile now...

Also, why don't more men knit?

Caron SS is a good choice for the scarf.

The Irish Hiking Scarf was my first cabling experience. It was done with CSS in Autumn Red.

I've got the Caron SS Shadows in green, too. Still don't know what I'm going to make with it. And it's in a box back in Jersey, so it's a bit of a moo point for now. ("It's like a cow's opinion. It doesn't matter. It's moo.")
