What fun little bundles of color!  Jolene on the left, and Sargent Pepper on the right.
Heart Break Hotel on the left, Sea of Love on the right.

More in from Madelinetosh and Hedgehog Fibers

The Tosh Unicorn Tail Group has 30 different colors with 50 yards each.  We have the updated kits in stock which now include: glass bottom boat, coquette deux, and duchess to replace: robin's egg blue, coquette, and purple basil.  Click  here  to see more details.

The Hedgehog Mini Set has 30 colors but each mini skein has almost 90 yards each

This is truly a knitter's crayon box!  Click  here  to see more info about this group.

The shawls below use a  mini skein set,  and a  contrasting yarn  and are all available only through Ravelry downloads.

Black to the Fuchsia  is written for 5-7 different colors with 100 yards each, and 400 yards of a contrasting color. 

The Purpleplexy shawl  takes 4 mini skeins, and about 500 yards of a contrasting color.  The Joker and the Thief   would be really fun using  Hedgehog Mini skeins!

The Chorma Collection  is a great way to play with color!   These patterns use a gradient set of 4-6 colors, and 400-600 yards of a contrasting neutral color.


The  Outline Shawl  was designed for unique one-of-a kind yarns, or would be a great way to mix some odds and ends in your stash with some mini skeins!

The  3 Color Cashmere Cowl  can be made with many different fingering weight yarns, which inspired Joji's latest cowl:the Peeping Cowl which looks like even more fun to knit!  Either project could be made with minis, but Natalie will admit she just wound up some  Three Irish Girls Adorn sock  for the Peeping Cowl. 

Simee Dimeh  (literally double water or double springs) is the native American name of an eastern Sierra Nevada mountain pass in northern Nevada.  This shawl is shown here with 7 colors, 133 yards each, but with a little creativity we think this would be a great way to use Hedgehog Mini Skeins!  Natalie has started this project using one skein each of 7 colors with Shibui Staccato  and is having a great time!  As soon as she starts to loose interest, a new section is up!  This pattern truly has it all-  texture, lace, and mosaic knitting to produce a colorful and textured homage to northern Nevada and the eastern slope of the Sierras.

Mother daughter knits!  Jan knit up this fun  Point of Libra Cowl  using 5 mini skeins, and Natalie made the matching  Point of Libra  shawl in a different palette which used 5 mini skeins of Madelinetosh, PLUS a full skein of the light gray.

Natalie knit her  Aranami shawl  in 5 colors of Koigu, but this would be a fun excuse to use mini skeins!  The  Buccaneer shawl  was designed for mini skeins, and you can choose between a little bit of lace, or a more solid look!

Unicorn Parallelograms  uses 20 different colors of Tosh Merino Light from the  Unicorn Mega Bundle, but Natalie used only 17 colors, and plans to use her remaining colors to knit a smaller Unicorn Stripes Cowl.  

Natalie is wearing  Gloria's Unicorn Stripes Cowl  which we have in the store!  She usedall 30 colors  and followed the directions to the letter!

Do you need something to knit using the new  Tosh Colors, or new  Fino Colors?  We do!
These are some ideas for single-ply yarn, and these projects would be nice to take on vacation!   
The Loop shawl  is a great excuse to use a crazy variegated such as  Beach Bonfire, without the finished shawl being too wild!  On the right is the  Kline Shawl  which is in the latest issue ofKnit.Wear  (we have plenty of copies in the store) and Natalie loves it in the colors as shown and she thinks she should knit on up in  Hedgehog Skinny Singles!


Exploration Station  is a fun way to play with color, as is the  Doodler .  Natalie knit the Doodler during a trip to TN this past November.

Cladonia   or  Imagine When   would be lovely with the sheen of silk from  Manos Fino.

We still have sweater quantities left in the newly discontinued  Organik by the Fibre Compan y
From Left to right, Forest, Painted Desert, Yellowstone, Desert Rose, Heather Moorland, and Holly Berry.

Natalie finished her  Maple Bay Cardigan  in Organik, and Ruth knit her  Rocky Coast  in Organik a few years ago and wears it often.

These adorable kits are suitable for the advanced beginner.  Each kit includes directions for knitting in the round, or back and forth.  These precious patterns are sold only in the kits.  

Collect them all!  We already have Emile in the store;  Natalie still needs to assemble her Marcel and Lisette!  Ruth is taking Hector with her on vacation!  What fun little friends!
