We appreciate that you are using Mail Order more than ever before. To make these transactions faster for both of us, and to let you know up front what your mailing costs will be, effective immediately, and for a limited time, we will be offering Flat Rate Shipping at a cost of only $5.95 on all mail orders-
certain disclaimers apply. It’s time to take advantage of this offer, and get some projects set up!

Curbside Pick Up

You can safely choose curbside pick up. Call ahead and place your order, or just call ahead and tell us you like to shop from your car or from a chair near our front door. We can bring product out to you to feel and touch. Let us go that extra mile for you!

Come On In!

We do limit the number of people in the shop and we expect everyone to wear masks, use hand sanitizer, and practice social distancing in the shop. We are constantly cleaning counter and high contact surfaces. Our bathrooms are now open for customer use, and are cleaned frequently as well. We will do our best to keep you safe while providing you with a satisfying shopping experience. There is nothing better than touching yarn.

Madelinetosh is BACK

A sport weight version of Superwash Merino with a strong stitch defining twist. 270 yards/100g hank. We have just added about 20 more shades.
The shelves are full!
My favorite project for Tosh Sport is a Baby Surprise Jacket. I have knit up many. I make the smallest size on a size US 4 needle using just one hank of Tosh Sport. I end up with about a 3 month size.
This is one of my favorite go- to projects.
Patterns available at The Knitter‘s Edge.
Twist Light– 20 colors added- Just a few shown here.
We just restocked Madelinetosh!
Tosh Merino Light, Twist Light and Tosh Sport are on the shelf and Tosh Vintage is on its way (my personal favorite).
Today I would like to feature Tosh Twist Light- a true sock yarn with a high twist and nylon added. 420 yds/100g hank
One Hank Scarf
This scarf is designed for just one hank of fingering weight yarn. But you can make it much larger with additional yarn. Here we have knit it with just one 100g hank of Twist Light in a deep rich red called Blood Runs Cold.
FREE pattern with your yarn purchase.
And a new design for a yarn from our last newsletter: Tosh Merino Light. Shila is a geometric themed shawl knit in 2 colors of Tosh Merino Light.
Just one hank of each colorway needed.

New Washcloth Kits

Many of you know that I LOVE Washcloths. They are a great way to learn a new stitch or new technique. Even if you make mistakes- they will be the very best washcloth you have ever used. And if you need to stay home, you may enjoy having a few of these kits ready to work up. In each future newsletter, I will include a new washcloth pattern for you to try (I’ll include crochet patterns too). This might be fun!
New Washcloth Kits are ready to go- cost $5.00.
Kits contain 50g Fantasy Naturale 100% mercerized cotton plus the pattern shown here: The Starfish cloth.
Many colors available.
Going forward, I will include a NEW Washcloth pattern in each newsletter.

New Washcloth Pattern

As I promised- here is another washcloth pattern. Each washcloth takes less than 50g of Fantasy Naturale. Today I am including just one knit cloth. More crochet ones coming soon.
Come purchase one or two 50g prewound balls of Fantasy Naturale and download a new pattern with each newsletter.
Frilly Lilypad Washcloth
This cloth begins at the center, and the circle grows quickly. The border is a picot edge. Lots to learn on this project.
