Confetti Yarn: This yarn is very lightweight and soft as soft can be. It usually comes in pretty pastel colors, just perfect for knitting for baby. You can use this yarn with another, or on its own. I used confetti yarn when knitting a blanket for my granddaughter Julia. I alternated rows of confetti with rows of another soft pastel baby yarn. The results are wonderful.

These allow the individual who is working on the pattern to come back to a certain place in the design later in the project, leading to a great deal of precision in the creation of the project.
Eyelash Yarn: This very popular yarn is a novelty yarn, one which is used either in conjunction with other yarns, or as an accessory to top off a knitting project with something special. The thread base which it is composed of, can be metallic, matte, or a combination of these. When you knit with eyelash yarn only, your project will take on a fuzzy appearance, very soft to the touch. You can make children’s scarves with eyelash yarn, and kids love the soft feel and texture and colors of this very unique yarn.
