I never thought this day would come! I have been thinking of dyeing yarn at home for quite a while now, but kept putting it off and making excuses for myself. I don’t know WHAT happened but the other day I just got off my butt and went for it and i’m so happy that I did!

First off, I am a whim kind of person when it comes to creativity. I know that if I have the motivation to create something, that motivation can fizzle out quite fast if I don’t do something with that energy immediately.
Today I am going to be reviewing Lion Brand’s Ice Cream Big Scoop Yarn! If you have seen some of my usual projects, you ay notice that this yarn is waaaay out of my usual comfort zone, but I have been feeling rather adventurous lately so I figured I would just go for it and see what happens!

So I have two main goals for this year as of now, 1) Do more yarn reviews and 2) Complete other designers patterns more often. In this review I am doing both of those things! In one of my previous reviews, I decided to post pictures of a completed projected made with the yarn being reviewed and people seemed to enjoy that concept, so I am going to try to continue doing that!

Naturally, reviewing yarns is fun because it’s really kind of an excuse to try a bunch of new yarns (and feel a little less bad about buying so much). Additionally, part of the fun of shopping online for yarn is trying to find more “obscure” brands of yarn to try every now and then. In reality i’m sure the brands aren’t really that obscure, but some of them don’t seem to be as well known in the US.

So you know how I am always talking about how much I love cotton yarn? (well I still do) I thought the day would never come, but I finally found a non cotton yarn that I love just as much! The biggest shocker ladies and gentleman, IT IS WOOL BASED.

I think most fiber artists find that one of the first yarns a large majority of us begin experimenting with is Acrylic yarn, due to its durability, accessibility, and affordability (all of which I will go further into in just a moment). Therefore it felt quite fitting to start this series off by talking about Acrylic yarn!

I have talked about this brand briefly in some of my patterns, but here is everything you need to know about it in one place! I happened upon Gazzal yarn, when I found myself wanting a light weight cotton fiber. I really love making lace like patterns that are spring and summer friendly, and in my experience the only easily accessible cotton that I could find was Lily Sugar and Cream, which is always available at Michaels and Joann. Now don’t get me wrong, a part of me will always love Lily Sugar and Cream yarn, but my only issue with it is that it is weight 4 yarn. Worsted Weight yarn is amazing for a great number of projects, but I don’t think Spring and Summer projects fall under that category.
