Tosh Merino Light: Tons of New Colors



A nice big shipment of Tosh Merino Light has arrived from our friends at Madeline Tosh, and we're swooning with color love (as usual)!  Whether these gorgeous hues or their clever names call to you, we love to use Tosh Merino Light for almost everything.  This fingering-weight yarn is singly ply, making it soft-as-all-get-out.  Each supple skein is 420 yards and loaded with color, so you can use one to knit up a One Skein Wonder or grab a few to make a sweater.  

Remember, Tosh Merino Light is hand-dyed in Texas with ethically sourced merino wool from South Africa.  Each skein is 420 yards and $26.  Click here to meet colors like Elizabeth Taylor, Then Luna Lovegood Fed the Thestrals, Night in Chile and to buy online!

 



 




One Skein Wonders: Fingering Weight Shawls and Cowls

Speaking of One Skein Wonders, this week's blog is filled with project ideas to turn one gorgeous skein of fingering weight yarn (like Tosh Merino Light, Malabrigo SockLa Jolla and more) into gorgeous, high-impact finished pieces.  We're focused on shawls and cowls for this week's edition - but even with that narrow focus we have a plethora of ideas for you.  Click here to keep reading and to get inspired.





Nightshift Madness at Wool & Grace

Our knitters can't seem to get enough of Andrea Mowry's Nightshift, and it's easy to understand why.  Mosaic knitting is taken to the next level with variegated yarns worsted-weight yarns.  This project is a great opportunity to play with not one but TWO new colors of Noro's incredibly popular Ito.  If you knit up Nightshift in Ito (pictured below), you'll need one ball each of two different colors.   






Or follow the lead of other savvy knitters and make your Nightshift using six colors of Cascade 220 Superwash Wave (as pictured in Ravelry user dartsman's Nightshift) pictured above.  Make Nightshift with 6 colors of Cascade 220 Superwash Wave (pictured below)!
