Edited to add 5 hours later: Please note, the kit has now sold out (you can e-mail for possible waitlist). But we have a lovely selection of Madelinetosh left, if you want to scroll down and see what's new!
Go now to get the 9th Anniversary Kit! To read all about it, go to this previous post, and to snag one immediately, just go here. To celebrate our 9th anniversary, I've priced this kit at 9% off! It would regulary sell for $69, but you'll find it for $62.75. Our kits tend to sell out within a day, so don't wait too long if you really want one.
Want to tack on other goodies to your order to take advantage of the free US shipping with an $85 order? We're having a FLASH SALE on all Madelinetosh, including the new coveted colors that I've been fielding calls and e-mails about for a week. Prices are discounted by 9% on Tosh Sock (reg. $26.50, now $24.12), Merino Light (reg. 20.50 now $18.66), Tosh DK (reg $21.00 now $19.11) and Pashmina (reg. $29 now $26.39). This sale will last only a day, so get your Madelinetosh before Wednesday, June 11 2014 at 5pm EST. If you want both the kit and want several hours to plan your Tosh purchase, you might consider placing two orders so you don't miss out on the kit (which could sell out within a day).
What might you consider knitting with your new Tosh? Well, I'm knitting ZigZagular socks with a skein of Tosh Sock in the Holi Festival. I've also snagged a skein of the Cosmic Wonder Dust color for something similar. I really like these confetti colors, and I know there are A LOT of knitters all over clamoring for them right now. I have quite a lot of them in all four bases, so I do anticipate that I'll have them for a bit.
Want to knit a great sweater in Tosh Sock? Rachael knit the ObLaDi sweater in a confetti colored sock yarn last year (in another fingering weight line, a one-off) and it's spectacular. You might consider Holi Festival, Optic, Modern Fair Isle or Cosmic Wonder Dust.
Of course, I have to mention that Tosh Sock and Tosh Merino Light really look stunning in patterns like Color Affection, Phi, Stripe Study, Happy Street. Today, Rachael and I were waxing poetic about Pendulum and Iszara- both would just be fab in Tosh Sock or Merino Light. One of the confetti colors with a more solid color. Like Holi Festival with Fluoro Rose (looks a bit BRIGHT, but it's like the best neon pink ever)
