In This Issue: Introducing Madelinetosh Yarn / Flattering, Versatile Knitwear Designs /
Sandrasingh.com is excited to bring you the delectable yarns of Madelinetosh! A fellow Texan, Amy Hendrix the owner of Madelinetosh is renown worldwide for her luxurious fibers and hand dyed designer colors. I have the pleasure of introducing two of her yarn lines, the knitting staple Tosh Sock and her newest yarn, Tosh Merino Light.
Soft, single-ply fingering weight Tosh Merino Light is also crafted of 100% superwash merino wool. Each skein is put up with a generous 440 yards making one skein perfect for a pair of socks and two skeins ideal for a lace project. But Madelinetosh's breathe taking color palette will inspire you to knit or crochet pullovers, cardigans, hat & mitten sets and much more.
Both of these yarns are hand dyed in small dyelots. Amy achieves her rich colors by applying multiple colors to the fiber in thin glazes, adding true depth & dimension to each skein thus making your projects stunning and unique. With so many beautiful colors you can use this yarn again and again, and each of your projects will be exceptional.

Flattering, Versatile Knitwear Designs
This year Fall fashion ushers in clothing women want to wear, knitwear continues to reign the runways and garment versatility is key. Get mileage out of your existing wardrobe, knitting time and the pieces you create with one of these flattering new designs.
More than one styling option make these two long, open flowing cardigans by Through The Loops and Anne Richardson wardrobe staples. Lonicera, by Through The Loops, is a long wrap/vest. Work one in bamboo or cotton for a breezy summer accessory than work one in wool or alpaca for fall and winter.
And the relaxed flair of Schaefer's Basketweave Kimono will make you look pulled together on any casual weekend. Both are knit in Schaefer's new yarn Chris.
