Madeline Tosh: Dandelion
Days like today are why I opened Holland Road Yarn Co. Days where I pick up a newly arrived yarn and mutter 'oh, you're so beautiful'. When I want to pinch it all off the shelf before you get a chance to fondle it. But then I remind myself of the other reason - to share the joy of such amazing yarns with you.
Madeline Tosh's Dandelion is that yarn. My obsession with anything containing linen continues, and Dandelion has me smitten. It is lustrous and light and bouncy and I can only imagine how wonderfully it will drape. MadTosh's colours simply shine out of each skein, making my woolly heart sing.

But what to make with it? Each skein is about 80g and 295m, and because I can't justify taking more than one off the shelf for my own selfish needs, i've tried to find one skein patterns.
It was worth the pain of waiting so long to get our hands on it! Now to decide which colour i'm going to claim for my own....
