Baby Yarn Doesn’t Have To Be Only For Babies
It occurred to me one of the reasons I love knitting for babies is the yarn. I mean really have you thought about this? It is soooooooo soft and squishy, hold it next to your cheek and you feel calm and gentle and you think babies. So what am I saying here, we all know baby yarn is great. Well here it is, wait for it…
Baby yarn should be used for us adults too!!
Yes! I mean it. What stops us from using this incredible yarn for some little something for ourselves? Oh I am not suggesting you use it to knit an ensemble. We know that it would take dozens of balls of yarn to make an adult outfit. But it would not take too much to make a scarf, can you imagine that up against your neck and face on a cold wintry day? I can.
So I had to try it. A few posts ago, I told you about that phenomenal deal I got on some fabulous baby yarn on my day trip. It was fantastic! But I didn’t really have a plan for the yarn. I’m sure you have done that yourselves. You see a beautiful color, or wonderful texture and you impulse buy it or the contingency plan that you will, of course, have an opportunity to use it eventually.
So I decided to use it for me. I made one of those little neck kerchiefs that really hug your face, one tail of the scarf slides into a loop on the other end and it snugs up to your chin. I love it. And it is so SOFT!
