Madelinetosh Madness

It has been some months since I stumbled onto this new yarn. I must say that I seem to have caught what they call "Madtosh Fever". To really get an idea how serious it is, check out the Madtosh Lovers Group on Ravelry.

Anyway, after I finished my first Madelinetosh Tea Leaves cardigan, I was impressed how little, if at all, the yarn has pilled. In the past, I have never bought or used the same yarn  in projects consecutively like I did with Madelinetosh. Even if I am not bored or dissatisfied with the yarn, I am so ready to try something else because ...life is too short not to knit with new yarn. 

But not this time.

Their colors are fabulous, but that is not unusual with a hand dyed yarn. I can name a few of my other favorites, all with stunning colors, like Blue Moon fiber Arts, Lorna's Laces, etc. ... But I think with Madelinetosh, the shades are more vibrant, more intense - for me at least.

So I am hooked. I started with the Merino DK, from left to right, Composition Book Grey, Grove, Thunderstorm, Tart, Mourning Dove.

Then I  accumulated some Socks (Mourning Dove), pile on Silk Fig), have to have Vintage (Mulled Wine) and finally stalked Eyre Light (Tart), not yet available, on the Etsy shop.
