YPF: MadTosh DK

There is one more skein of yarn from Maryland that I haven’t shown you, but since you are about to see the following yarn on a WiP Wednesday near you, I figured I should probably put it up for YPF.


When Natural Stitches got one of their inaugural shipments of Madelinetosh in to the shop, my spies mentioned there was a blue or two I’d probably like. So I hustled my butt over to the store and checked out what was on their shelves.


I came home with everything they had in Betty Draper Blues in Tosh DK (formerly known as tosh worsted). I have four skeins. 100% superwash merino, 225 yards/skein. I only have one complaint: When I wound the last three skeins tonight, the first thing I discovered when I un-twisted skein #1 was an obvious knot that had just as obviously been hidden by label placement. Bush league, in my opinion. But that’s OK. I’ll just use that skein last.


This project was bumped up in the plan of attack since we will be getting this yarn in at Bloomin rather soon. Which means that my vest can be a shop model for a little while. Rationalization is my friend.

That is a beautiful summer blue. I've never seen Madelinetosh yarn in person but it looks lovely and soft through the screen.

Happy 4th!

Lovely color...looks kind of denimy to me. Look forward to seeing your project!
