Yesterday, Mom and I headed to Fort Worth to check out MadTosh Crafts, the retail storefront of Madelinetosh Yarns (which are dyed here in Fort Worth). Despite it being pretty close to us, we had never made it down there (and it’s quicker to get there than I thought it would be). Anyway, it was wonderful and amazing and I’ve never seen that much Tosh in one place! We saw some of the new colors and everyone was very nice and helpful and we had a wonderful time! We’ll definitely be going back!
But you’re probably here for the yarn, aren’t you? Ok, here’s what I got!
From left to right, Edison Bulb in DK Twist, Charcoal in DK Twist, Blue Bell in DK Twist, and Worn Denim in Tosh Merino Light.
The Edison Bulb is for some fingerless gloves to wear when I run. The ones I have are getting ratty and I need something bright to keep from getting run over. The Edison Bulb is bright, and it won’t clash with my pink jacket. (Or it will clash so badly, it won’t matter, I can’t decide.) Since I won’t use the entire skein on the gloves, I got the Charcoal to make Caleb a hat, with an Edison Bulb stripe.
The Blue Bell is for another Tea Leaves Cardigan. I’ve made one in creamy white and I love it, so I want one in another color. I was actually looking for a pink, but I couldn’t find the right pink and the Blue Bell spoke to me. It’s lighter than it photographed (I think Edison Bulb blew my camera’s mind). I’ll have to track down some great buttons for it.
The Worn Denim will be a shawl. I kept looking at all the TML (Tosh Merino Light) and while I really don’t need another blue green shawl, I kept picking this color up so clearly it needed to come home with me. It’s also lighter than it shows here.
You would all be very proud, I left all the Cove there! They had it in several bases, but since I have so much Cove already, I was afraid it was getting a little weird.
