I have to stop finishing these late at night, so that my pictures turn out lame before I pack them up:
I used Loops ands Threads Impeccable yarn, which I believe is the house brand at Michaels. The colors were Forest, Cadet and Seaside Ombre. These colors seemed to match extremely well in the store, but in daylight..not so much. Also, you can tell in that variegated one where I changed skeins, because the color pattern changed. I don’t appreciate that. And I used that yarn to do two finishing rows around the outside. I will probably use that brand again, (and I have plenty left over from this project), but I think I am over the variegated yarn in general.
