I'm new to knitting and finally decided to use a higher end yarn. I'm glad I chose Madeline Tosh Lace Yarn. It moves smoothly, is resilient to my sometimes clumsy handling and is knitting up into a beautiful shawl - I think it's a shawl since I'm doing a Mystery KAL!
The color? Breathtaking. Texture? Lovely and soft. How does it knit up? Well, I'll let you know if I ever manage to wind this horrifically tangled skein. Mind you, I know how to wind a skein of yarn. I have encountered this before with Madeleinetosh yarns, but the combo of horrible tangles with lace weight? heaven help me. 2 hours in, and I've got a long way to go. Total disappointment (and frustration).
The Madelinetosh Lace Yarn comes with a good amount of yarn, possibly enough to make three scarves, depending on the pattern. So far this has been my favorite Madelinetosh. I've tried the DK and the DK light, but I like the lace best.
