Several months ago Amy from Madelinetosh wrote to ask me to create a design using her wonderful yarn. I had heard many great things about Madelinetosh yarns and was eager to try them, but hadn't yet found the time. I happily agreed. Amy sent a skein of her Tosh Vintage yarn in Composition Book Grey and I got to work right away.
(On a side note: Izzy was giving me her best "Zoolander" in the photo above. I think she nailed it. Too bad I cropped her face in half when I took the photo.)
The Tosh Vintage yarn was a dream to work with. As with all of the Madelinetosh yarns that I've seen, the color had richness and depth. (Which I don't do justice to in the photo above but it shows the top of the tam well.) I knew instantly that I wanted to knit it up in lush cables. The worsted gauge works beautifully for small accessories like the Poet Society Tam that I designed for Amy. It would also be an excellent choice for a larger project like a sweater or worsted weight shawl.
