I think RHSS gets softer after you wash it. Granted, it's not as soft as Caron Simply Soft. But it is a lot softer. Liquid fabric softener really helps.

washing it will help, my son didn't like his RHSS hat that I made until I washed it because it was too scratchy. I have also heard that brushing it can help too.

I was looking for a colorway like this the other day and accidentally bought TLC choco cherry instead - it looks almost identical - Has anyone used that one before? I'm wondering if it will turn out the same because i LOVE everyone's projects with the red heart yarn.

I have used ChocoCherry and I love it!  I did a shrug in it and it came out great!

Hi guys! I'm merging similar threads that could be considered "inspiration" threads so I can include one link in the Archives post located in the Crochet News section.

When I've only got one ball, I like to make motifs and connect them into necklaces/collars -

woohag: I'm using the same colorway and I'm going to make the PDQ hat from the Happy Hooker. Granted I'll have a ton left over, so a matching scarf/scarflette may be in order.

Thank! I'm definitely going wash my scarf and my hat once it's done. Unfortunately whenever I use liquid fabric softener on clothes it leaves a random stain, so even though it sounds great, I don't think I can. What brand did you use?

Try putting the item in a pillowcase and when you pour the liquid into the wash pour it on the opposite side of the pillowcase. Also wait till theres some water in the washer before putting it in. I've had the same issue so many times. Smiley
Also I found the clear kind if it stains doesn't stain as badly. When I used green (typically scented) it stained horrid and ruined one of the hubbys nice work shirts.

I got a skein of Red Heart Pomp-a-Doodle yarn for Christmas last year and still have no idea what to make with it! I've found a lot of scarf patterns, but I have way too many scarves and no one to give one to. I also found this rug pattern (http://www.crochettoday.com/tags/pomp-doodle) but again, no use for a rug or anyone to give it to.

I was thinking of maybe making a pillow, but I'm not sure if that would work out well. If you crochet with this yarn, is it "solid" enough to stuff without everything falling out?

Or does anyone have any other ideas for what to do with this yarn?
