The yarn that I absolutely love for loom knitting is Bernat Softee Chunky. You probably have noticed that I use it on just about every project. However, it is getting harder and harder for me to find locally. WalMart was carrying it, but now only 2 of the 3 local WalMarts still have a craft section. And the last time I checked they were not carrying very much of it. Michaels carries it, but they are very, very limited on the color selection. I have tried some other yarns along the way and they have just been okay. Most recently I tried the Vanna’s Choice yarn and although it was good, I still wasn’t 100% satisfied. I noticed on the Michaels website that their stores are just starting to carry Bernat Berella 4. I went to Michaels today to check it out. Not only was it priced pretty well at $2.29 a skein, they also had a decent color selection. I also had a 20% off my entire order coupon so the skeins only cost about $1.83 each. I tried it out and although it will never reach my love for the Softee Chunky, it comes in a very close second! I was thrilled at the color and feel of this yarn! It also worked up very nicely on the loom without any splitting. I will definitely be going back to stock up on more colors!
Here is the wee little pumpkin that I made using the Berella yarn. He is only about 2.5 inches tall. I gave him to my son for a little Halloween decoration for his room. I am going to use some of the larger looms to make some for myself.
