Madelinetosh is BACK

Tosh Merino Light- 20 colors added
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 Merino Light along with a couple of great designs for this fiber quality. Look for other featured Madelinetosh yarns in the next newsletter.
This shawl is designed for 2 colorways in Tosh Merino Light. Garter stitch beginning with a diagonal column feature along the outside.
This free pattern is a great design for beginners as well as more advanced knitters. The garter stitch top flows into a large feather and fan border.
This is a FREE pattern that uses just 1 hank of TML.

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.

Patterns as Promised

As I promised- here are additional patterns for washcloths. Each washcloth takes less than 50g of Fantasy Naturale. Today I am including one knit cloth, and 2 crochet cloths.
If you are local, you may know by now that we have several extremely hot days coming in the week ahead. Please have some projects – such as these quick cloths -available for indoor knitting and crochet. Stay cool everyone.
