I received a skein of yarn for the purposes of this review. All opinions are my own. I always strive for complete honesty.
I had so much fun working with this yarn courtesy of Tinted Tangles. Krysta, the shop owner and creative genius, is just a girl following one of her passions. I love that.
Catherine and I went for a walk for our photo shoot. (Dominic came too, but had little interest in posing with us.) I think the above picture is my favorite from our session.
Basic yarn details:
- Color: Coral (April Color Crush)
- For best results, hand wash cold, but occasional machine washing is fine.
- Reshape and lay flat to dry.
- 75% Superwash Merino Wool / 25% Nylon Fingering Weight
- 462 Yards
- Knitters: #1-3 needles (2.25mm - 3.25mm)
- Crocheters: B - E hooks (2.25mm-3.5mm)
As soon as I saw this yarn I knew exactly what I want to make. I wanted a light and airy scarf that could be worn all year round. I decided to use the Infinity Loop Scarf Pattern (again). I used a size E crochet hook. (Exactly like this one from Clover Amour.) I made the large size, but I could have made it a bit larger.
Like all of the Color Crush line, the color of this yarn is simply beautiful. The coral is between a pink and an orange, which is just perfect for me! Krysta dies all the yarn with professional grade acid dyes, in her own little kitchen. This also means that you will get a truly unique product, because no two skeins are alike.
Tinted Tangles ships world wide, so everyone can experience the pleasure of knitting or crocheting with this yarn! Just so you know, Krysta also does custom orders.
Have you had the pleasure of working with Tinted Tangles? I'd love to hear about what you created!

While Catherine both loves the scarf and looks absolutely adorable wearing it, this infinity scarf is mine. Catherine is turning into a pretty good little photographer, and managed to capture the below photo of me wearing the scarf. I do think that I will make her a little scarf of her own with the remaining yarn.
I love to link up my projects around the blogosphere.
