Red Heart

[ Cutie Pie Yarn

The very first thing

that ran through my

mind when I opened

Red Heart’s Cutie Pie

yarn was ‘omg soft.’

It wasn’t in a clear

enunciated way either;

it was in that muffled

way that only truly soft

yarn would be able to

invoke.

The texture of this yarn takes a couple minutes

to adjust to. When you’re feeling it all wound

up in the ball it's very soft. When you go to

cast on it’s still soft, but the texture likes to hang

onto the needles a little bit. The very first time

I cast on was with bamboo needles, but the

stitches weren’t sliding particularly well. When

I switched to wood needles my knitting was

flowing nicely again. I checked how Cutie Pie

did with metal needles and it went well. The

smoother the needle surface, the easier my

stitching went.

Red Heart Cutie Pie Yarn is ‘omgosh so soft.
