Madelinetosh Sport, Malabrigo, and Shibui

We have more of your favorites up on the website tonight! We’ve just added in:

Madelinetosh Sport – now available in more than 80 colors. This is a great weight yarn in beautiful colors. I made the “And So Are You” shawl out of Madtosh sport, and bought myself 3 other colors in double skeins for future projects. Double skeins because I’ve been on such a shawl kick. But this yarn would also make wonderful socks and sweaters, too. (Shown here in Dried Rose.)

Malabrigo Finito – a once-a-year base in 100% Pure Superfine Merino. This is the finest luxury wool available commercially in Uruguay and comes to market just once a year. We’re already hoping that Malabrigo will have it back again next year. It is a luscious fingering weight, in 50 g. (200 yard) skeins. (Shown here in Aguas.)

Shibui – re-stocks in Staccato, Baby Alpaca DK, patterns and books. I’m currently working on the Cabled Rib Wrap pattern, which uses a strand of the Baby Alpaca held with a strand of the Silk Cloud. It is beyond wonderful to work on.

Universal Cotton Supreme – in new colors! Look for Lemon, Terra Cotta, Holiday Red, Salmon, Seafoam, Lime, Holiday Green, and Dutch Blue. I made a sweater out of this wonderful yarn and I can confirm that it is indeed completely machine washable and dryable. If, for example, your sweater turned out too big and you wanted to shrink it? Not going to happen. I know that’s good news for most of you wanting to use this yarn. For me? Not so much. I really needed that sweater to shrink. (Shown here in Dutch Blue.)

Woolen Mill Street – Corriedale Roving in all kinds of tempting colorways. Time to spin! (Shown here in Grapes.)

Need a few pattern suggestions for these yarn choices? Try the CopyKat Shawl or the Spring Garden Tee with the Madtosh Sport. Finito would be lovely in the Lizzie Bennet Shawlette or Rockywold Fingerless Mitts. And how about the Miette Cardigan or a Zoe Cardi, (which I need to re-knit in the correct size) in the Universal Cotton Supreme? Also fun – a window full of Happy Flower Decorations with a Spring Robin on the side. What do you think?

  1. So, given that my spinning ability is low and my desire to spindle spin around the cat and dog is even lower, how reasonable is it to knit directly from roving?

  2. Sheri I’m glad to hear you’ve started the Cable Rib Wrap – it’s the same combo of Shibui Silk Cloud and S baby alpaca as the cable rib scarf I did for the 1st quarter challenge – you can see now why I just have to have more of it – it makes an exquisite fabric. Happy knitting Melody
