Christmas in August

I hear sleigh bells ringing! Snowflakes glistening!

Oh wait. It’s not the holiday season. It’s just the day my yarn order arrived in the mail from WEBS.

Because I am so smitten with Madelinetosh Tosh Merino light, I want to try the other Madelinetosh bases for some design projects I am itching to get to soon. I also aspire to knit my very first pair of socks. I am so inspired by all the gorgeous socks I see in the knitting blogosphere (we are so amazing that we have our own special realm in the universe…) and try my own. Perhaps I will also take to the specific knitting niche of sock knitting. You just never know. For my first socks, I chose Madelinetosh Tosh Sock in Shire.

I also succumbed to Madelinetosh Pasmina in Kitten, Madelinetosh Tosh DK in Fallen Cloud, and Madelinetosh Pasmina Worsted in Well Water for some small design projects I have sketched out. The Pashmina Worsted is on clearance, and I am really tempted to make a second order and grab the rest of the Well Water colorway. The color is just beautiful, and of course the yarn is so very soft with that bit of cashmere in the mix. I was very drawn to a soft grey palette for my design work.

We shall see what comes!

    I’m a total Madelinetosh freak! Love the colorways, the feel, the look of anything after its knit. I have my own stash for gift projects and I’m gloating over them with great excitement!
