close knit: the neighborhood yarn shop

Do you know what this sad, empty shelf means?

It's time for more Madelinetosh! Friday morning, Sally unpacked a huge box of yarn from one of the most popular hand-dyers.

Our shelves are now stocked with a fresh batch of Tosh Merino DK and Tosh Merino Light. These are both single-ply superwash merino with amazing yardage. The DK knits at about 5.5 stitches/inch, and the Light knits at about 7.

The internet is crawling with beautiful patterns for these yarns. As many of you have already discovered, the DK is great for pretty much everything. I love it for hats and scarves. The Light is amazing for those lightweight sweaters that are all over the place right now. Shawls, too. I especially like the striped ones in The Fine Line by Grace Anna Farrow from Knit Isager.

These are very hard to keep on the shelves, and even harder to get back on the shelves when they're gone.

Come and get it!
