Lots of Blue going on around here right now...
Just a note here..... this Blueberry version is a slightly different pattern from the original Fruit Salad version 


  1. Will try this one again...see if I get it right this time because I really like it 🤗🤗🤗🤗

  2. my word! I found ANOTHER page of Caron Simply Soft in Blues and Greens! I LOVE the waves pattern in these blues! The blue and green flowers are amazing! I hadn't thought of those combos after 3 years of Caron Simply Soft being my go-to yarn, so I never would have.
    One question; Did you get a skein of a dark blue/green called "Pagoda"? It's a fave of mine and I don't see it..
    Thank you, Sue!
