More Madelinetosh is in!  

This will be our final shipment of Tosh ASAP and Home for the season- October is a long ways away!  We have all the 2016 painterly color series in the super chunky ASAP, and we have all the latest 2015 colors back in stock in Pashmina, Tosh Home, Tosh ASAP, Tosh Merino DK, and Tosh Merino Light.  We also ordered some of the recently discontinued tosh colors so you can be sure to get your favorite color.

 
One skein of Tosh ASAP will knit up into the Gilsland Cowl.  Three skeins of Tosh Home will make the Shaw Hill Shoulder Cozy.

 
One skein of Tosh Merino Light will make the ever-popular Bias Loop Cowl.  Natalie had a great time knitting Japan Sleeves with a total of 4 skeins of Tosh Merino Light. 

We have all of the knit items below in our store for the rest of January.
 

One skein of Tosh Merino Dk will knit into the Rikke hat, or the Arbutus Cowl.

 

One skein of Tosh Vintage will knit up the Renfrew hat, and one skein of Tosh Merino DK will knit the Rathtrevor Mitts.

 
The Grace Cardigan is a fresh take on a classic raglan cardigan and uses 3-5 skeins of Tosh Sock.  The Strathcona Lace scarf is a seasonless accessory knit with 400 yards of fingering weight- try Shibui Linen or Twig
 

 
We also have in a trunk show from Kelbourne Woolens- you may recognize a few patterns since we knit many of them already!  We will have everything from the book Little Things until the end of January.  To shop the featured yarns in our online store, simply click on the underlined yarn, or to see our selection of Fibre Company Yarns in our online click here .  We have the hard copy of this adorable book in stock too!  Every yarn featured here is a joy to knit with, but since they are hand-dyed we recommend blending skeins if you have a project that takes more than one!    

 
Both the Ilse Cowl, and the Phlox Cowl use 2 skeins of Tundra.

 
The Sabina Simple Handwarmers use one skein of Canopy Fingering, and the Aleda Shawl uses two skeins.

 

The Astrid Hat uses either one or two skeins of Meadow.  The Leticia Hat uses two skeins of Acadia.

 

The Minjonet hat uses three skeins total of Knightsbridge.  The Kiernan hat just takes one skein each of two colors of Tundra.

 

Both the Faolan leg-warmers, and the Shipwright leg-warmers take three skeins of Road to China Light per pair.

The Wild & Easy Ozark Cowl on the left uses 150 yards of a super chunky and 100 yards of Ozark Hand Spun. Both of these were knit by customers!  The Bulky Ribbed Scarf on the right is a great traditional scarf that uses two strands of lace-weight mohair and one strand of a heavy worsted yarn.  

 
The Bulky Ribbed Cowl is a gift favorite.  All you need 90 yards of chunky or super chunky yarn.  Rasta is our most popular choice.  You can see some of our Rasta in our online store here, but we are constantly getting  new colors in our store.  We also love to use ASAP by Madelinetosh for a superwash option.  

 
 On the left in a simple garter stitch cowl that showcases any chunky yarn, and on the right is the Carmella Cowl. The yarn featured here is Zen Yarn Garden Chunky with a touch of cashmere- truly sumptuous and the one of a kind colors are simply stunning.  Either cowl uses two skeins and we didn't feather the yarn, we just embraced the hand-dyed yarn.  We are fully stocked with our final shipment for the season of this yarn, as well as Madelinetosh Home for all you superwash yarn lovers.

 
Jan knit Natalie the Lanesboro Vest with 5 skeins of Blue Sky Bulky Alpaca in a weekend (you could use Rasta for a more colorful look)!  We love this garment open or closed.  It is a great layering piece for colder days.

 
We are fully stocked in the yarn and pattern for the Shawl Collared Cowl!  Two skeins Tundra and three buttons are all you need to knit up the cowl on the left, and two skeins will also knit up the Arctic Circle tent stitch cowl on the right.

What beautiful weather...

Makes us want to knit!  

In this  newsletter, we are happy to suggest some new fun patterns, and some tried and true ones!

Just in time- our chunky Tosh shipment is here!  Tosh Home is a true bulky/chunky weight yarn (size 10-13 needles) , and it is superwash, making it great for everyone on your list!  Each skein has 110 yards and is $22.25 a skein.  This is a squishy 2-ply, hand dyed yarn in new colors from Madelinetosh, as well as some of our favorites.  If you don't need a superwash chunky yarn, Tundra from the Fibre Company is wonderful for any of the projects shown here.  See more details on Tundra here.



You could also make the every popular, Gaptastic Cowl with 3 skeins, or the Dropped stitch Cowl with just 1 skein.




Natalie is sure to knit the Liberation Cowl with two skeins of one of our chunky yarns.


Do not get this  yarn confused with Tosh ASAP or Rasta which will BOTH be fully stocked the first week of September for your even quicker gift needs.  Don't worry, we will send out another email with some of our favorite, tried and true patterns for Super Chunky Yarns.  We think it is good to have our most popular winter yarns in different emails, because  it can be hard to know the difference between a chunky yarn, and a super chunky.  I tell people, the easiest way to tell them apart is to think, "if I am using a 15-19 needle, I most likely need a Super Chunky yarn".  We also have all the big circular, and double pointed knitting needles in stock all winter long in both Addi, and Hiya-Hiya.  Call for availability .  



 


Rowan Brushed Fleece

Don't miss out on this soft  blend of extra fine merino wool and baby alpaca. The yarn has a subtle marled effect.  This is a true chunky weight,  making it very wearable, warm, lightweight, and also a quick knit!  Get started knitting this weekend on some new sweaters to wear this winter ($13.95 a ball).


To view all the patterns in the Brushed Fleece Collection click here.  We have these booklets in stock for $17.95.
