New Madelinetosh is Here

We have just received new stock in Madelinetosh. Here I am showing new colors and combos in Tosh Vintage, my very favorite weight in Madelinetosh. We carry Twist Light, Tosh Merino Light, Tosh Sport, Tosh DK, Tosh Vintage, and now Triple Twist, and Wool + Cotton. I absolutely love using Tosh Vintage for sweaters for my grandchildren. I just wish I could knit faster!

Love Note KAL

Starting Friday Sept 3, Julia will start our next KAL with this beautiful sweater
To join our KAL- join our Facebook Group page.
This top down oversized pullover can be knit with short or long sleeves and either cropped or hip length. The loose gauge of 4 sts =1″ over stockinette stitch allows for the use of anything from the recommended fingering wt +
Lace wt mohair to a worsted weight yarn. A well written pattern.
Here is a photo of a Love Note Pillover Julia knit already. She used a Fingering wt yarn + a lace wt Mohair Silk Blend. It is a super light weight garment.

Julia has decided to make two sweaters for this new KAL: one knit with the recommended fingering wt yarn + a mohair /silk blend. She is using Malabrigo Sock + Rowan Kid Silk Haze. For her other version she is going to work with a DK weight yarn: Joe Cole’s WTF Flockin’ DK worked alone. I think she is taking on 2 projects so that I will have a better chance of keeping up with her. (LOL)
I am knitting a toddler sized Love Note knit in a much heavier yarn: Cumulus.
I am using Cumulus for my Love Note Pullover. This pattern is written in sizes 0-6 months all the way up to 5XL. I will be attempting the size 2-4 for my granddaughter. My sweater will only take 2 hanks of Cumulus.
This is a fast knit folks!
We hope you will all join us. Take a look at the Ravelry Pattern Page for so many versions of this pullover.

Besides almost every fingering weight yarn we have in the shop + the several versions of Kid Mohair/ Silk blend, take a look at these yarn suggestions for the Love Note.
Cumulus is a super soft, ultra light cotton. We carry so many colors. I am using the light pink in the upper right corner. Cumulus is worsted weight gauged and long on yardage at 248 yds/100g. I will only need 2 hanks.
Check out these other yarns for the Love Note:
My number one choice for an adult Love Note is this merino + pima cotton blend. This is a super popular yarn. Right now we have every single color back in stock, including 2 brand new colors shown here.
These 2 new colors of Sea Isle Cotton are now in stock.
The soft peach and light blue are going to be wonderful additions to the
Sea Isle Cotton Line.
All 14 colors are now in stock. Many people used this yarn for the Ankers Sweater- very successful. Will also make a great Love Note! 50% Organic Pima Cotton + 50% Fine Merino Wool. 329 yds/100g hank

What The Flock Flocking DK
An exclusive yarn to The Knitter‘s Edge, WTF DK was designed and hand dyed by Joe Cole. Each 100g hank of this tonal beauty contains 231 yards. Julia will be using this yarn solo for her second Love Note KAL

Rasta!!

This easy, & fast to knit beauty takes just one hank of Rasta, and there was enough yarn left to make a Pompon for the top. We suggest a tonal shade for this such as those shown here below.
A lightly-fulled single-ply yarn of magnum proportions! Whip out a super-cozy accessory in just hours with this super-sized delight of a yarn. Our premium Uruguayan merino is just as soft as ever, and Rasta comes in a range of our unique “watercolor multi” colorways as well as a rainbow of semi-solid basics. Unbelievably squishy, this is the yarn to turn to when you want the ultimate in warmth (or the ultimate in speed!). 90 yds/150g hank.
And here is another Great Hat (or Cowl to knit)
worn as a hat.

Our own Julia Swart is providing this pattern FREE for just one hank of Rasta. We all think that this design would look great in one of
Rasta’s Kettle dyed colorways.
