Overall, I did not enjoy working with this yarn for the first time. It was extremely awkward, slow-going and caused a lot of pain in my wrist. After getting used to it, things got less awkward and moved much faster, without pain. So if you have a little patience and like big, soft and squishy things, this yarn is for you! It really was a great choice for these pillows!
Congratulations to Glenda Irvin, the winner of the 4 skeins of Red Heart Sweet yarn and a copy of each pattern!
