A few days ago, Suzann mentioned that there was a pretty good selection of Sugar-n-Cream at ACMoore. She was right!
I've noticed quite a few MD KAL members wondering what is the difference between Sugar-n-Cream (by Lilly) and Peaches-n-Cream (Elmore-Pisgah). Well, I really don't know other than manufacturer. I haven't seen any of the Peaches in the western New York area, although I can't say that I've exhausted all the possibilities yet. As near as I can tell, it looks like it can be interchanged for most of the projects in MD Knitting.
Do take this with a grain of salt...I do have a habit of regarding instructions as suggestions!
I contacted the Peaches and Creme yarn manufacturer and they said you can purchase Peaches and Creme at Wal-Mart
Other than manufacturers and stores, the only difference I've found between Peaches & Creme and Sugar & Cream (besides the way they spell 'cream'!) is that S&C feels a bit softer to me. I haven't washed any S&C yet, though, so I don't know if it stays that way.
