The Knit Surfers talk about Madeline Tosh and all of the exciting projects people are making with it. There are even more colors arriving at Common Threads.
Kelie finished her Making Waves Cardigan out of Madeline Tosh Sock in the colorway Flashdance. She also finished her short sleeved Labyrinth out of Forbidden Woolery Gluttony that she bought at the 2015 San Diego Yarn Crawl.
Kelie's planning on making a Hence Sweater out of a superwash merino she bought at the Torrance Fiber Festival several years ago. Nancy helped her cake up the enormous skein of yarn.
