Keep warm with a little bit of Madelinetosh!

It’s true! We have some more Madelinetosh on premises.  Some Tosh Sock, Pashmina, Prairie, and Vintage are all snug and cozy on shelves. See the yummy splattered colour ways – Optic, Cosmic Wonderdust, Holy Festival, Modern Fairisle in the Tosh Sock weight in the picture below.
We’re expecting to get some Merino Light in real soon too, I’ll let ya know when it arrives.

Every once in a while we are the happy recipient of some hand spun yarns from Jana Falls, like the punchy purple skein pictured below.  Each skein is made by hand with hand dyed fleece on a spinning wheel.  Each skein is unique.  A hand spun skein of yarn is like no other animal.  Come in soon to admire them.
If you would like to learn how to spin your own yarns (literally speaking) now is your chance.  The Knit Café has a beginner spinning class starting this Sunday! It’s the last one till our next schedule in Spring/Summer.
It might take some practice to be as profession as Jana but the practicing is addictive.

More of Madelinetosh!
This yarn is called Pashmina. What does “Pashmina” mean anyway?  The word seems to be mired in some kind of identity crisis.  Any old shawl seems to be able to claim the title, but I protest! True Pashmina refers to our friend the pashmina goat and his or her fine cashmere locks.  Madelinetosh Pashmina is 10% cashmere.  The rest is just as good news – 15% silk, 75% merino

I could not resist showing off this yarn in pairs.  It is just too fun to play pallet swapping with these soft and dewy colours.  See them shimmer- that is the silk!

On Sunday I sent out a reminder of our Baby Sweater Class that is starting on Monday.  I thought you might want to see what you would make in this class↑

This little sweater was made by Iwona who is teaching the class.  Those adorable buttons and the heart shaped embellishment make this little guy extra adorable but you could gussy up this simple sweater however you choose.
PS. It was made with Madelinetosh Vintage
