There's nothing I like more than knitting, unless it's knitting with free yarn. Doesn't get much better than that! So, when I was fortunate enough to be the winner at Yarn on the House's recent giveaway, I was quite excited. I won a skein of ToshMarino yarn from Madeline Tosh.
I had never tried Madeline Tosh yarns before, and I was very intrigued to try this much talked about yarn. I must admit that the color for this giveaway "Tannehill" was not a color of yarn that I would have normally picked for myself, but wow when I opened the box from Ve (Yarn on the House's fabulous blogger) I was completely blown away by the rich colors in this yarn, as well as it's incredible softness. While at first look you'd think this was a moss green, but look closer and you will see about 6 different greens, and about 6 different browns and a tinge of blue, beige and even eggplant. Incredibly amazing color! And the softness is beyond compare. It is a real treat to knit with such soft and lovely yarn!!
So, what am I knitting with my new yarn? Well, that took me a bit to figure out. But I decided on a cowl, with a simple but interesting stitch to show of the beautiful colors and let this gorgeous yarn be the "star" of this cozy neckwear.
I want to thank Ve for hosting such fabulous giveaways! Be sure you stop by Yarn on the House and join in the weekly giveaway fun. Tell her I sent you. ;o) Also a huge thanks to Madeline Tosh for providing such fabulous yarns to knit and crochet with!
