I Heart Madelinetosh

I knew that during the course of my Husbands deployment I would be knitting like a fiend, but even I couldn’t foresee churning out TWO projects in the first two weeks of his deployment!  I am a slow knitter by most accounts, so it was fairly shocking when I found myself binding off a honey cowl less than a week into the deployment.   An even bigger shock came exactly one week after that when I began to bind off a mara shawl.  Granted, it was a 2 skein version- but being that it was my first triangle shawl, and only my second shawl ever, even I was amazed at my apparent mad knitting skills.

I’m finding myself in the middle of an intense love affair with Madelinetosh yarns.  The softness of each skein, the way it seems to glide between my fingers as I knit with it, the amazingly squishy resulting fabric that comes with knitting it up at the proper gauge… I want to surround myself with these yarns!  The colors are so saturated and intense, which only makes the experience of knitting with it that much more satisfying.  Sigh…  I ❤ Madelinetosh…
