Tawney Sweater,by Jenni Barrett, knit from MadelineTosh Tosh Sock, using 3.25mm and 3.5mm needles.

It Is Time

Time for what? Time to bind off my shawlette.

Okay, So There Was a Little Yarn

Remember the pile o’ packages from Monday’s post?

There was a little bit of yarn in one of them:

The green is Madeline Tosh Lace — (colorway called “Grove”) .It’s 100% merino (superwash) with 950 yards per skein.

The variegated is their Pure Silk Lace, which is 100% tussah silk and has 1000 yards/skein. The colorway is “Wren.”

I have purchased these yarns purely for research, honest. 😉

Still plenty of time to enter the book giveaway — see yesterday’s post.

Oklahoma, OK!
