Yarn Overload 2016 continues, and do I have a doozy of a surprise for you! As part of SSYC's 11th anniversary celebration, Madelinetosh has sent over fifty colors of their cashmere blend 80/10/10 MCN Sock. Not only that, but I'm able to offer them to you for $22 a skein. That's the same price as Tosh Merino Light or Twist Light, and two+ dollars LESS than Tosh Sock but with 10% cashmere for luxury and 10% nylon for durability. Basically, you're getting cashmere for free. FREE. Happy birthday to us and you, right?

Need some pattern inspiration? While the MCN Sock would obviously make great socks, it would be a shame to not try that cashmere right next to your neck. Ideas for one, two, and three skein projects, as well as a couple of sweaters we think would be lovely in this blend:

This MCN sock isn't a base that Madelinetosh normally offers for retail, so if there's a color or three you're thinking about, grab them soon, because it won't last long. This is just a special from them to all of us to start our summer-long anniversary celebration on a super high!
Also, happy Memorial Day to everyone today! Here in the US, we honor this as a federal holiday, which means for our shop we are closed as USPS celebrates this federal holiday too. Thanks for allowing us an extra day to get your orders to you, as we get back on track after our long weekend.
