I totally love Manos del Uraquay yarn. Not only is it a wonderful world cause, but it feels great! You can see the pix of the tags below which will tell you a little about the cause of this yarn.
Edith looks great in this color
For the Storm Cloud Shawlette by Hanna Breetz (pattern on ravelry.com), I used yellow Manos Serena in yellow. The teal trim at the bottom is some fingering weight tweed I had in my stash.
For this project, I learned about elongated garter stitches. Love it when I learn something new. I also used size 8 needles.
