Yesterday, a parcel arrived containing an order of Sirdar Snowflake Chunky yarn, which I ordered for a future project. I am in love with this yarn!

I've worked with Snowflake quite a few times in the past, and I would class it as one of my favourite specialist yarns to crochet with. It brings your projects to life and really adds something special to them! It's also fantastic for children, because it's soft and fluffy but doesn't shed fur everywhere.

The K.I.S.S Series Lion (which is no longer available for purchase, unfortunately) has to be my favourite Snowflake creation so far. The yarn worked perfectly with the style of the animal and I was so pleased with the finished product!
Anyone who is in two minds about using more specialist yarns to crochet with, I would highly recommend giving it a go. And if yarns like this aren't readily available to you, try looking on eBay! I can buy a wide variety of colours in the town I live in, but it is vastly overpriced. I got the above balls for £1.61 each ($2.50), whereas I would be spending at least £3.00 in town. Definitely worth having a browse online!
I can't wait to get started on this project! Need to finish my current one first though!
