Today's Yarn Babies post is going to be a bit different than last weeks. Instead of focusing on a yarn company, I am going to chat about a specific, stunning skein from a yarn shop, A Good Yarn, in Sarasota, FL!

This beauty is called Midnight Pass, and it is an exclusive Madeline Tosh colorway for A Good Yarn. Y'all - the pictures just aren't going to do this yarn justice. It is much more bright aqua then any of my photographs could capture. It is like staring into a deep, blue pool of perfection!

I know most of us will be familiar (aka obsessed) with Madeline Tosh. My favorite Tosh base is definitely Tosh Merino Light (TML) - which happens to be what this little pretty is dyed on. I am a sucker for a single ply, and this one does not disappoint. The uses for this fingering weight yarn are endless - my favorite is definitely a shawl. Which is what I have planned for this lovely skein. It is just itching to be paired up with 2 other skeins and knit into a perfect summer shawl - maybe crescent shaped, with some lace texture??

No joke - I tried so hard to capture the true color of this gem! Every background I could find got a chance...

A Good Yarn Sarasota has a whole line of exclusive colorways (oh to own a yarn shop!) and each one is stunning! I especially love how it really correlates to their local community! You can even see inspiration pictures paired with most of these colorways and how they came up with them - so cool. So if you want to check out a shop with a personality that shines thru their yarn, I highly recommend it!

Are you lucky enough to have visited this shop in person?? If so, I am dying to hear about it, so tell me everything in the comments below!! As always, I love to hear about other yarns you want to see showcased here! The conversation continues next Sunday!

Also, a big congratulations to Brienne, the winner of the Eucalan Giveaway!!!
