Spring is in the air, Easter is right around the corner, and we’re thinking about what we can make for the season. If you run last minute (don’t we all?) and are looking for a fast, fun project you might be interested in checking out the latest from All About Ami. She’s turning up the cuteness meter with her Snuggle Bunny pillow pattern.
Fast-Track® is an incredibly useful and versatile yarn. The softness of the cotton-poly blend makes it great for clothing while the tape-like shape makes it sturdy enough for home goods.
Well, this yarn is also excellent for crocheting home wares, as well. It's soft but still durable, chic but useful. Since it's washable and it comes in a lot of different colors, Fast-Track® can work with almost any decor. It's sturdy enough for a rug, but light enough for a basket or bowl.

Baskets and Bowls
Rugs and Mats
The easy care means it's perfect to use this around kids and pets! They'll find it comfy to nap or play on, and when an inevitable mess appears, it's simple to clean. Toss it in the machine to wash, then lay it flat to dry.
Of course, this is also a fun yarn to get really creative with. Try making it into jewelry or weaving it for wall hangings. Get the kids involved -- there's no need to knit or crochet, they can make bracelets or other pieces by braiding, wrapping, or weaving.
The unique look will make for truly interesting and beautiful pieces.

The sweater, made with Fast-Track®, is soft, cozy, and comfy while still being lightweight. Fast-Track® is a cotton-poly blend, which makes it feel like your favorite t-shirt.
The pattern is available in two sizes -- S/M and L/XL -- and takes either six or seven skeins of yarn. You can purchase a kit here in any of the colors. It's 25% off for a limited time, so jump on that deal now, while you still can!
The new color combinations give you some choices, so that you can really make the sweater suit your style. The royal blue and white adds a nautical touch, while the green and gray is cheerful (and would look great on any redheads out there). And of course, you can never go wrong with basic black and gray. That choice will go with pretty much anything, making this already versatile cardi even more useful.
It can be bright or subdued, neutral or funky. This sweater looks great over a basic casual outfit like jeans and a tee, but you could make it work for other occasions as well. With the right skirt, it could go to work, or even out at night on a date or to meet friends! Plus, since Fast-Track® has a nice lightweight feel, this will be a great piece to have for cool summer nights.
This is a great project for any level of knitter, too! It's simple enough to be your first sweater, but it's still interesting enough that a more advanced knitter won't get bored. The stockinette stitch shows off the uniqueness of the yarn, while the colored stripes add a nice bit of detail.
