I'm so excited to share these recent knitting FOs with you! I actually finished them a few weeks ago, but kept forgetting to blog them!
I knit up this Rosebud Hat for MadTosh's Cabling Class (which sadly no one signed up for. :( ). This is a Brooklyn Tweed pattern, so it was extremely well-written, with a great chart and clear directions. The yarn (Madelinetosh Tosh Mo) is a mohair blend that while it shed all over me, it was a great yarn! The cable is a bit difficult on this pattern (it is a 12 stitch cable cross), but doable. I really enjoyed this one. I knit the longer length choice.
This lovely cowl was the pattern choice for our beginning knitting class. It is the Looped Loop pattern, although we modified it so that our beginning knitters would not have to do a provisional cast on and complicated grafting. This is Madelinetosh Tosh Merino in Gilded. Yummy. If I knit this again I would lengthen it - I knit it to 44 inches before seaming, and I would like it longer.
And finally, the Gift Wrap Baby Sweater. I used Madelinetosh Vintage (such a lovely yarn!). I really really enjoyed this pattern - very easy, very cute! I love that it goes from NB-2 years and that it has short and long sleeve options. I will be knitting this one again!
I'm curious... is the "madtoshcrafts" affiliated with MadelineTosh yarns? i have followed your links, but the madtoshcrafts site is lacking any "about us" page that would inform their public, their blog is lacking details as well...i am intrigued...ReplyDelete
Yes, they have the same owner. Amy started the store because several of our LYS's had closed in the past few years, and she missed the knitting community.ReplyDelete
