The story behind the design.
My son was on a snowboard trip in NY state. There happened to be a yarn shop across the street from where he was staying, Adirondack Yarns. He decided he must go into this yarn shop and buy some souvenir yarn for his mother. He asked the yarn shop owner for something very special that his mom might not be able to find in just any shop and they decided on Madelinetosh, Tosh Vintage. He picked out the color way Cove which was absolutely the perfect color for me, a subtle combination of grayed blues and greens. I knew I had to design something special that would make the most of the amount of yarn and show off the yarn. I think I have succeeded in my goals.
