Madelinetosh Vintage is BACK

My Favorite Tosh is now restocked

A full bodied worsted to Aran weight high twist superwash. It is definitely my favorite yarn in the shop!. I use it almost exclusively for my grandkids sweaters. Amanda and Joanne (my DIL) say it washes and wears so well. 200 yards/100g hank. We have just added 2 new colorways, and restocked all of the favorites. The shelves are full!
A FREE pattern for fingerless mitts. Perfect for fall. This project will take
less than 1 hank of Vintage.
Emily knit this cardigan for Marshall and he wore it for a good long time.
2 colors of Vintage made it very special.
Now this is a definite winner! Who wouldn’t love a Charlie Brown pullover? Sized from 3 mon to 8 yrs.
Now we come to my favorite sweater pattern for a little one:
I have knit many of these. The top down one piece construction is so easy to work. I find it very relaxing. Here is my grandson in the first Flax I knit for him- in Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage of course. The other sweater is my latest birthday gift to him- knit this spring. I come back to this FREE pattern so often, and I love to use Tosh Vintage.

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!

Many colors available.
Going forward, I will include a NEW Washcloth pattern in each newsletter.

New Washcloth Patterns

As I promised- here are two new washcloth patterns.
Each washcloth takes less than 50g of Fantasy Naturale.
Today I am including one knit and one crochet cloth.
