They come in 18 beautiful color combinations.
They are all gorgeous so it was hard to pick one colorway but I just *had to* buy one in the color called Faerie Cake.
I only bought one because it is worsted weight yarn and I usually find worsted weight too heavy for our Texas weather. But 1 skein was just a little short of finishing this beautiful pattern, so back to the Michael’s I went.
But, surprisingly but not too surprisingly, they were out of some colors already, including the Faerie Cake color!
So what is a girl supposed to do? Pick other colors, right? And this time I had to buy more than 1 skein.
Caron Cakes Specifications:
I used a Clover Armour 5.5 mm hook and the yarn slid smoothly. It is a very soft yarn without being too flimsy. I almost wish it was 100% acrylic so I don’t have to handwash it. I pulled from the center and it pulled out nicely. But in retrospect, I should have studied the color order and worked in a way it crocheted from a darker color to a lighter color (so from outside to inside for the Faerie Cake color). Also, colors change abruptly (not gradient color change). This was not a huge issue for me as the pattern called for fastening yarn off on some rounds and I just made my color changes then. So I guess the real advantage of Caron Cakes for me was having the colors preselected and I didn’t have to buy different colors separately.
I am thinking of doing another Moon’s Shadow in the blues (called Blueberry Cheesecake – yum!) and turn it into an Around-the-Bases afghan. I might try the upcoming Demezla crochet-along with Esther in the pink one (called Cherry Chip).
What are your plans for this fun and gorgeous yarn?
