Blog Giveaway – Madeline Tosh Sport

It has been a busy few weeks, which meant that I had to take a short blog break.  I had wanted to blog about the beautiful Fleece Artist Saldanha, a 100% fine merino lace weight yarn with generous yardage and hand-dyed color lines but it was not to be so.  So I thought I would mention it now. 🙂

On to the blog give away.   Many thanks to Madeline Tosh for sponsoring this blog give away!  They gave us two hanks of their new prototype yarn, Tosh Sport.  I am holding a hank right now and I can tell you that Tosh Sport is soft, smooth and lofty.  It would make beautiful accessories, garments and yes, socks.  Tosh Sport is a 100% superwash merino that comes with 280 yards of yarn on each hank.  The hanks seem to be around 70+ grams each.  This is a guess as the labels are not marked and I don’t have a scale here.  The color line is Well Water.

If you would like to have these two hanks please tell us what you would like to see – more of – from Madeline Tosh.  A new yarn, a new color, new fiber combinations, new yarn weights, anything you heart may desire.  What would you like to see under the Madeline Tosh label?  Please post a comment with your suggestion(s) and we will add your name to the pool from which we will select a name randomly.  If your name is selected the yarn is yours.  You have until Sunday August 1st, midnight to post a comment.  Hope to see you here!
