Cardis + Tosh + Calligraphy

A few things have collided in space and time to make for perfect knitting conditions:

  1. I am cardigan-crazy. I wear them all year and, other than socks, they are usually the only article of clothing that I wear out. Yep, that’s how much I wear them. Thank goodness for elbow patches.
  2. We at Urban Yarns have been going a bit crazy waiting for the Madelinetosh shipment to arrive. And it’s here! I can hardly wait to pop in and look at the colours. Amy at Madelinetosh has such a gift with colour, and they use some of the softest, springiest base yarns I’ve ever felt.
  3. Hannah Fettig has recently republished her Gooseberry Cardigan as the Calligraphy Cardigan in, you guessed it, Madelinetosh Tosh DK. Clearly, people, the stars have aligned on this one. As usual, my eyes are bigger than my…knitting basket?

    Have you made Cherry? It’s a cardigan I think I’ve made six times now with different stitch patterns and sleeve lengths. The fit is just perfect.
