Two weeks ago I downloaded a free shawl pattern for Madelinetosh yarn. I wanted to try it first in a yarn that I had in my stash. I did not have any worsted weight yarn of the same color with enough yards for the shawl. So I mixed colors. Although I am not a fan of pastels the shawl turned out fine.. And now I have started on it with this yummy delicious yarn from Madelinetosh. The pictures do not do the yarn justice... It fails to show the beautiful delicate color variations. The yarn color is cherry and this is their DK yarn...previously their light worsted weight.
