Today I have good news and bad news to share.
The good news is that a couple from my Bible study has sold their home. Allen and Carole have been praying about this for over a year now, and God has answered their prayers! It was their great desire to move closer to their children and grandchildren that led them to put their home up for sale, and now they are completely ecstatic that they can finally make the move!
The bad news is they will leaving us, and we hate to see them go. They are such an inspiration to my husband and me, and we’ve grown to love them. Although we are happy for them and their family, we can’t help but think of how much we will miss them.
OK, I have more good news, though! Carole has been so generous at providing me with excellent crafting resources since she is downsizing for her upcoming move. Hooray for me! Thanks to her I have tons of ideas and items for new crafts you’ll be seeing on the blog in the upcoming months. I am so grateful she’s passed these wonderful goodies along to me, and in turn I get to share them with you!
I thought I’d start off by sharing this beautiful ribbon yarn she gave me. I was excited to receive three balls of this beautiful yarn, which is exactly how much I needed to create the scarf pattern listed on the label!
Have you ever made a project with ribbon yarn? This stuff is absolutely beautiful, and the colors are stunning in this yarn by Lion Brand. Unfortunately this particular yarn has been discontinued, but there are other brands of ribbon yarn available for purchase. Just go to your local craft store and you’ll be sure to find some.
Ready to see the beautiful scarf this yarn created? Here goes!
Ribbon yarn really does create a beautiful project. The colors are so vibrant, and the texture is silky.
Would I use ribbon yarn again? Hmm… Although it is lovely, it was tricky working with it since the yarn is thin but wide. I had to turn my needle just right to make sure the yarn was hooked onto it. But considering the beautiful end result, I probably would use yarn ribbon for another project.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and taking a peek at this lovely scarf! If you are interested in trying a ribbon scarf of your own, here are a few ribbon yarns for you to consider for your project.
