If anything was going to drag me back into blogging it was going to be three skeins of mad tosh.
It was the one yarn I had never tried. The one yarn I had lusted after for years and never bought. Then I was at a convention for my other job and there was a yarn shop booth across from mine. There was a whole pile of Madtosh sport weight for me to stare at all in colors that I could not refuse. I let the yarn sit for a while because I didn't know what to make with it. I knew I wanted a shawl, but I didn't like any of the shawl patterns I could find. They just didn't work for me so I took Dream Stripes by Caillieau Berangere and changed the striping. I wanted big thick stripes so I could see Mad Tosh's mottled colors.
I'm tempted to knit a star applique in a pink or a yellow to put at the top of the shawl. We'll see.
It's nice to have time to knit amongst all the crazy.
