Look What Came in the Mail Today!

In order of appearance:  Madelinetosh 80/10/10 worsted weight in color Edison Bulb; Madelinetosh 80/10/10 worsted weight in color Sand Dune; Madelinetosh 80/10/10 fingering weight in color Spectrum.  The 80/10/10 is 80% merino superwash wool, 10% cashmere, 10% nylon.

It is really hard to capture the true color of this fabulous yarn.  It should be easier once it is knit up into something that is worn outside in daylight.  It was snowing this morning so no outdoor photos for me today!

The first of these to be used will be the Sand Dune and the Edison Bulb.  I’m designing a vest and will knit one in each of these colors plus another color, Terrarium – MT Vintage yarn.  I can’t wait to get started!

On the rest of the knitting front – I’ve finished the baby gift I’ve been knitting for a while but won’t post photos here until the parents have it in their hands.  Don’t want to spoil the surprise!

I’m also working away on my second worsted weight sweater in the 6-sweater series I’m designing.  I’m over half way done so should be finished and ready to look for test knitters just after Easter (first week of April time frame).  I think Andy will be finished with his manly version at the same time.

It’s been so cold here lately that everyone is 1) complaining and 2) still wearing lots of heavy hand knits.  I’m looking forward to warmer weather and cotton sweaters and lace shawls!
