Smiley's Yarns are here!

Our yarn arrived today!

This is Carol's fashion toes yarn.  It is 90% superwash merino and 10% nylon.  She will have happy feet!
This is the Aran Marl yarn that I got.  It is 100% wool and very soft.  The tough part will be deciding which of two patterns I should use!  At $1.49 per 50 gm skein, I figured I wouldn't be out too much for a first time sweater for myself!
My photography is not the best, but you get the idea.

I think the worst part of ordering over the internet is choosing a color.  Sometimes it's not quite as it looked in the picture, but I am thrilled!

I got only 3 skeins of this "easy wool" in a dk weight.  I can't remember why.  It may have been for another baby sweater like the tan one I just finished.  It is machine wash and dry, so being easy care would be handy for  that purpose.


  1. Beautiful yarns. What are Smiley yarns? The price sounds great. I need the link. :-)_

    1. Lynn sent out an email for me to everyone in our group a couple of weeks ago. It had a link to Smiley's yarn. This is the second time I have ordered from them. I found good quality at bargain prices. Just google Smiley's yarn. The Aran Marl was only on sale until the 18th of October, and is now $3 instead of $1.49 a skein. They have eyelash yarns, boucles, Mohair, cotton,wool and wool blends at prices that are usually more than 50% off. Minimum order is $50, but the shipping is a flat rate of $13, so it would be sooo cheap if a lot of people put an order together.
