Dualistic

We all have those single skeins of gorgeous fingering weight yarn, right? You amass these things, with the goal of making socks, or one skeins shawls. But then you realize that it goes really well with another skein. Or you don’t want a pair of socks in it. Or you prefer larger-than-one-skein shawls. And that’s where Dualistic comes in. Use those fabulous single skeins with each other to create a generous shawl that is fun and easy to work, and looks oh, so fantastic.
