A Tale Of Two Designers

Once upon a time, two designers picked yarn out of the back of my car in a back alley in Toronto and designed pretty stuff with it.  The end.

OK, so only one of them picked the yarn out of my trunk, and it was in Kensington Market, but still, she designed this:

Grand Central, by Natalie Selles, knit with 2 super squooshy skeins of MCN Worsted

And the other told us about a Knitalong she was planning for this shawl:

La Toupie by Anna Dalvi, a doubleknit triangular shawl knit with 2 contrasting colours of Merino Silk 4 ply Sock. 2 skeins (1 of each colour) will make the shawl pictured here. Please order 2 of each colour if you wish a larger shawl.

And look! We just happen to have some of both yarns here, fresh from the dyepot:

For Grand Central:

Kit, with hard copy of the pattern & 2 skeins of MCN Worsted: $61

Or, you can purchase the PDF of the pattern here, and order 2 skeins of MCN Worsted for $56

4 skeins will make a larger shawl: $116
