This giveaway is now closed. Thank you to Madelinetosh and all who participated. The winners have now received their yarn. Congratulations and happy knitting.
My yarn crush continues.
The fabulous team at Madelinetosh Hand Dyed Yarns was kind enough to sponsor three skeins of their Tosh Merino Light to be gifted to three lucky blog readers.
I know, right.
I LOVE the colors they sent. The soft grey is Smokestack, the gentle pink is Rose, and the light beige is Antique Lace. I have fallen deeply in love with Smokestack in particular and will definitely be buying a few skeins to knit up a nice top…Although it probably won’t be until next year at the rate I have been going on the projects I have slated for this year. Smokestack, Rose, and Antique Lace really go well together…in case you are in the market for three shades to work into the same piece for a little colorwork.
This is the thing about Tosh Merino Light:
1. It comes in 89 colors. Yes, 89. And every color is so STUNNING, which is of course what spurned my love affair in the first place. If I was stranded on a desert island with just Tosh Merino Light (endless supply of all the colorways) and no other yarn whatsoever, I would be happy. Additional requirements: rum, mango tree, and sun block. Oh, and fresh water. Knitting needles too. Obviously. And my family. Double obviously.
- It is so soft and touchable. Like yarn butter. But not greasy. When I shared my love for Tosh Merino Light last time, a fellow knitter commented that the Pashmina is even softer. I can’t wait to try it. And that’s the thing about Madelinetosh Yarns: there are so many different blends! How will I even knit them all?!?
I love the weight of the yarn. It creates a perfect fabric. Not too heavy. Not too light. Just knitted heaven.
I know there are so many great yarns available these days (high quality, responsibly sourced, beautiful…), and I can’t wait to try them all. That said, if you haven’t had a chance to try Tosh Merino Light, please do.
You can thank me later.
I will gladly be shipping these three beauties to three separate lucky winners at random. To enter, please leave a comment below. Limited to residents of the US and Canada. (Yes, I am adding a little international shipping to the mix…why the hek not…). Deadline to enter: midnight, Friday, July 3rd, Pacific Standard Time.
Good luck knitters.
