Gettin' Swatchy

I know many of you are wondering what my beautiful skeins of Madelintosh Pashmina turned in to.

Although you have to wait a couple more days for the reveal of my new pattern, I can show you my funny looking swatch:

Yup, the honest truth- I am a lazy knitter.  When I am trying out multiple stitch patterns I often just throw them onto one long swtch instead of casting on and binding off multiple times.  Plus, after I frog and wash the swatch I can re-use the yarn.

Many of you guessed that the skeins above were the Baltic colorway. It is actually the Cousteau, which is a newer Madelinetosh colorway.  Stay tuned later this week to see the pattern that will debut with Knit Culture at Vogue Knitting Live!


  1. good idea to knit a continuous swatch. I have some hand dyed lace weight in that colour - I love it

  2. oh man, that yarn is soooo pretty!

  3. That yarn is gorgeous. I can't wait to see what you make!

  4. I love Cousteau. Love it. I can't wait to see what it becomes.
