Stash Appreciation: Madelinetosh, Tosh Merino Light


About a week ago, I went to River Colors with the Lumberjack and my friend Ondrea.  I did some serious yarny damage: four skeins of Tosh Merino Light to make Pas De Valse.

I've been drooling over this sweater ever since it came out in Twist Collective.  I have a grey cardigan with waffley fabric from the Gap that I wear constantly, and this sweater has a similar shape, but I imagine it will be a lot nicer.  I like how versatile the design is - it can be worn open, pinned in a variety of ways, or belted.


With its lovely halo, gorgeous color, and ridiculous softness, I think the Tosh Merino Light will be the perfect pairing of yarn with the pattern.  I'm hoping to swatch tonight.


Even though the colorway is Blue Gingham, this color really reminds me of Wedgewood blue.  So pretty.  I can't wait to work with it.
