Growing up crafty, Caron yarns were always a staple in our house--one of my very first crochet projects as a kid was an attempt at a blanket made with Simply Soft® -- I don't remember finishing that blanket but I do remember making MANY more trips to the craft store with my mom to check out the latest colors and ideas for our next yarn-y project. I have to admit, back then that was my favorite part of the process!
Now as both a professional designer and a mother myself, I have a renewed appreciation for the quality, affordability and oh, I'll say it--the washability of Caron products. I can always count on the things I make for my kids to last through wear and tear, when I use yarns like Simply Soft and NaturallyCaron.com Country! This company was with me at the beginning of my stitching path so I'm thrilled to be Caron International's spokesperson now, hopefully helping them continue to inspire those of us with a love for yarn goodness!
