madelinetosh yarn

Ended up frogging this project and setting it aside. It was supposed to be a hat to go along with the cowl I just finished. Sadly it just wasn’t coming out the way I had intended. So for now, or at least until my disappointment and annoyance subsides, I have hidden it away.
It is still so beautiful though… I will try hand warmers next, and maybe a headband?

I keep seeing everyone posting their #2018KnittingGoals and it has inspired me to figure out what I want to knit for myself in the upcoming year!
.
My stash is NOT small. I have lots of yarn and lots of patterns queued. I even have many yarn/pattern combos all ready to go. It’s just a matter of finding the time to complete projects that are on the docket and not getting distracted by shiny new ideas!! I think my main goal for 2018 is stash busting. Not because I think my stash is too large, but because I have so many yarns that I love and want to use!
.
So, here are some of things I hope to knit in 2018:
.
(1) I plan on kicking the year off with the @dreareneeknits Comfort Fade Cardi KAL. I will be using @niceandknit yarn from their Green Fade kit.
.
(2) Marco Polo sweater, with this @mrscrosbyplays yarn that I got at the @websyarn tent sale this year.
.
(3) I have two other kits from @niceandknit that I purchased at #stitchesunited last year that need to be knitted up. They are Torguata by @ambahobrien and Southbound by Nice and Knit.
.
(4) I have had the Beeswax Cowl, Hat, and Mitts by @amyvdlaar in my queue forever. I even have the perfect @madelinetosh DK yarn in stash to knit them!
.
(5 & 6) I have two @officialkitteryly kits that are also waiting to be knit up. Take it All by @malihadesigns with Hedgehog Fibers yarn and Versus by @xilary with Tosh Merino Light.
.
There are of course so many other things I would also like to knit, but these are at the top of my list right now as projects that I have both the yarn and pattern for and just need to cast on!

Finally got a change to take some pictures of this guy. Both sleeves are the same and it’s Madelinetosh yarn so you know this beauty feels as dreamy as it looks!

Check it out on my etsy

Sorry guys no pattern for this one. The sleeves were so challenging that I honestly don’t know how I pulled it off. I am working on a pattern for a straight forward polka dot sweater since I got so many likes and comments on the body, but it is still in the works!
