There are a couple of yarns that I just love . . and some I love for different reasons. Madelinetosh has been a favorite for many years. I love their colors. I love the twist on several of their yarns. Wollmeise has also been a favorite. Again, it’s the color and the twist that I love on those two yarns.
On Ravelry, the question in a Madelinetosh forum was asked today about your first Madelinetosh yarn. I knew right off what it was for me.
In late 2010, I ordered Madelinetosh Vintage in Scarlet to make the Hollygrove Scarf.
That was back in the days when I ordered yarn and used it immediately. That was also my first cable project. What a monster of a cable project for the first time. There were cables all over that scarf but I loved it so much that I bought more yarn and made one for a friend.
I have been a fan of Madelinetosh yarns at least since 2011. One of the Madelinetosh girls . . her grandmother lives in Brownwood. That isn’t so unusual because the Madelinetosh works is located in Fort Worth, just a couple of hours from here.
Madelinetosh Vintage was $18/skein back then and now it’s $23/skein. That yarn stash is like money in the bank! That’s my story and I’m sticking with it!
