I like using this kind of Madelinetosh lace for anything requiring neatness in stitches. Prairie is differently spun, so that's better for other things. No knots, which is nice. This shade or batch has a yellow base tone, so that may not be what you want if you are looking for a blue or white base minty shade.
The yarn is a bit more varigated in dark/light than in the picture. My batch had a cream and slate blue mixed in with the brown, but since they were even in both skeins, it wasn't an issue. Very sproingy - and yes, Sproingy is a word.
