Caron Cakes Yarn....I want some more!

With these cooler temperatures all I wanna do is knit. 
Back in August, Michaels got this new yarn called Caron Cakes. 
It is just so much fun! 

 It comes in the most lucious colors  with names like: (think Cakes) Red Velvet, Cherry Chip, Macaroon, Funfetti, Key Lime, Rainbow Sprinkles and Faerie Cake.  
Who doesn't love cake?

Once I discovered it, I searched every Michael's I could find. Even 
had my friend, Helen searching. We looked at both stores in our area,
 Destin, and St. Louis, we lucked up and found a few skeins but not in 
the, I guess, most popular colors.  See!! Almost empty shelves. The
 stores are supposed  to get more in November :( but that doesn't
 leave much  time for Christmas gift knitting projects.

     Helen made this scarf with the color Macaroon. I love it!

The pattern for this blue one I got from my new friend, Cindy, over in Montgomery. It is a little lacy and better for our warmer
 southern winter temperatures. 

                            I'm working on another scarf in the color
 Cookies n' Cream.
    It is delightful!

We are currently working on Shawls and making good progress. These are  easy patterns even a beginner could do. These will make great Christmas gifts, if we can just get more yarn in time to get them made.

For you knitters, I am sorry for this enabling post and a frustrating one at that. Hopefully the yarn will come in earlier than expected and  we can get our hands on some! Let me know if you find some and show me your projects!
                                          UPDATE !!!  Good news to report!
                      (The new yarn finally came in and HELEN and I replenished our stashes! )
