You might not know, but August is the official/unofficial start of knitting season. Though the weather may be as hot as hot can be, it makes no difference. Thoughts are turning to Fall. New yarns are arriving to fill up the shelves. Goodies are gathering to be knit-up. We couldn’t of hoped for a better start to the official/unofficial beginning of Fall then a great big shipment of Madelinetosh yarn!!
