Two Projects From One Yarn

I just finished up another shawl, this one is the Drachenfels shawl pattern you can purchase on Ravelry.  I used some really luscious yarn and love the outcome.  It is more vibrant that the photo, the lighter blue is really a rich teal color and the darker blue is a saturated deep purple.  The subtle stripe color is from Madelinetosh, and is more of a variegated color.  LOVE THAT YARN!

I had enough of the Madelinetosh left over to make a nice baby hat, for someone special for Christmas.  This yarn is wool, silk and cashmere and is so buttery soft.  This baby will have the best feeling hat around, to cuddle that cute little head.  Also made with so much love, could a baby ask for more?  Gotta love it when your yarn stretches past the original project and you can get just that one more item out of it.  A win-win.  All the yarn came from OSuzannah's yarn on Union Street in Morganton. She is always surprising me with such fabulous yarn!!

And a nice quote from the Madelinetosh web site:
