Wolseley WOol

Fav Yarn Friday – Odessa’s is making some shawl plans…

As soon as I saw that Joji was doing a Mystery Wrap I just had to get on that! Her patterns are all so beautiful with nice details and most importantly, super wearable. When I saw it described as a large rectangle I was double in! The MKAL doesn’t start until May 12th, but that doesn’t mean I can’t start dreaming of yarn ideas. I had way way too much fun with it and ended up coming up with a ton of ideas – we have some packaged up at the store if you want to check them out.

I wasn’t sure quite what I was going to do, but in the end I had some special skeins of yarn at home that I wanted to use so I brought them to work and paired them with some Manos Alegria and Ancient Arts Reinvent. Both yarns have great colours and feel really great. Wollmeise Sock or Twin, Malabrigo Mechita, Fleece Artist Cottage Socks and other beautiful sock and shawl yarns would work great too. I put together a grouping of Handmaiden yarn Flyss that was SO hard not to take home. I’ve talked to a few people about how exited they are to start this shawl. You really could do anything with colour!
