Exclusive Madelinetosh Limited Edition Colors

June 2017 - Chrysoprase

semi-Precious-Tosh Ametyst

Now that last year's Toshstrology Collection is at a close, you know what time it is: time to get ready for this year's new and exclusive Tosh Series! And have we got a stunning surprise for you: introducing Semi-Precious Tosh! Inspired by the gorgeous variations in natural, semi-precious stones, this collection is all about beautiful, hand-dyed color in captivating combinations!

And best of all, we'll have two new subscription options for you! Rachel Roden designed a wonderful, progressively knit, Semi-Precious Shawl that will use 70-yard samples of Tosh Merino Light of each color, and both Rachel and Monika Evans designed a Semi-Precious Blanket in Tosh Vintage (designed in knit and crochet, respectively) that will use one skein of each monthly color!

If you choose a subscription option, the skeins or samples will ship to you automatically each month (cost billed at time of shipping), so all you have to do is sit back and enjoy your yarn!
We've also teamed up with Spark! For a special set of Stitch Markers to coordinate with the monthly Tosh colors!

Check out these specific yarn pages for availability:


These limited edition colors are seriously just that: limited. We can re-order Semi-Precious Tosh Vintage and Tosh Merino Light based on the number of subscribers who join each month, but once we sell out of the others, that's it! We're out! These colors can sell out fast, so be sure to grab some early if they strike your fancy. Some months we sell out in a few days and others a few weeks, you just never know.

June 2017 - Chrysoprase

May 2017 - Amethyst

Madelinetosh Limited Edition
We're proud to introduce color number five in our Semi-Precious Tosh collection - Amethyst! In the spirit of spring cleaning, we felt Amethyst was the perfect match for this month's gemstone since its known for having cleansing and healing properties. This playful, pastel purple incorporates wonderful tonal variation that is remarkably easy on the eyes. We've been obsessing over this color since its arrival to our shop, and many of the Beans here could hardly wait to cast on a skein or two of their own!

April 2017 - Rhodonite

Madelinetosh Limited Edition
We are thrilled to present the fourth color of our Semi-Precious Tosh Series, inspired by the unique gemstone Rhodonite! Its name is derived from the Ancient Greek rhodon, meaning "rose," and we thought the timing of this color was absolutely perfect as we welcome springtime and all the gorgeous roses beginning their blooming cycle. This sassy, speckle-dyed combination of vibrant pink and black contrasts nicely against a natural background, creating an undeniably beautiful splash of color to brighten up your knitting needles and wardrobe!

March 2017 - Chrysocolla

Madelinetosh Limited Edition
Next up in our Semi-Precious Tosh series is Chrysocolla! From the Ancient Greek chrysos kolla or "gold glue," this cyan-colored minor ore of copper was first used to solder gold in 315 BCE by Theophrastus, a successor to Aristotle, whose On Stones treatise would become a source for other texts on gemology well up until the Renaissance! The dazzling hues of this blue-green mineral proved to be the perfect inspiration for spring as we move into brighter, warmer weather, and Tosh came through wonderfully! We even experienced our own little yarn Renaissance here at the shop when we first laid eyes on it - many of us were so inspired we couldn't wait to cast on!

February 2017 - Garnet

A New Year means a new Madelinetosh Limited Edition collection, and we've searched the globe for gorgeous inspiration to come up with: (drumroll, please) Semi-Precious Tosh! Captivated by the amazing variations in natural, semi-precious stones, we designed this collection to be about beautiful color in captivating combinations!

Madelinetosh Limited Edition
It's time for the February installment of our Semi-Precious Tosh Series, and what better time than the Month of Love to reveal this sultry and seductive red? Garnet is a marvelous mélange of pink, purple, and red tones from moody mauve to bold burgundy, and we think it has us under a love spell: we're finding it impossible to tear our eyes (and needles!) away from it! And no wonder: named for the pomegranate, an ancient symbol of love, Garnet has long been associated with matters of the heart!

So, what are you knitting for your Valentine this month? We're thinking about a heart (and foot!)-warming pair of Changeful Socks in one of the new Tosh bases we carry, BFL Sock! Or, snag a skein of Tosh Sport and whip up a pretty pair of Portlander Mitts! Only you know the way to that special someone's heart, but be sure to share pics of what you make on our Facebook and Instagram!

A.S.A.P., Dandelion, Home, Pashmina, Prairie, Tosh Chunky, Tosh DK, Tosh Merino, Tosh Merino DK, Tosh Merino Light, Tosh Sock, Tosh Sport, and Twist Light.

January 2017 - Labradorite

A New Year means a new Madelinetosh Limited Edition collection, and we've searched the globe for gorgeous inspiration to come up with: (drumroll, please) Semi-Precious Tosh! Captivated by the amazing variations in natural, semi-precious stones, we designed this collection to be about beautiful color in captivating combinations!

Madelinetosh Limited Edition
We're kicking off the year with one of the most alluring stones we've ever seen: Labradorite! This special type of feldspar has so many layers of iridescent color, it's hard to capture them all, but Tosh has done it! Subtle blues, greens, and grays speckle a light background, imitating the play of light on a reflective Labradorite stone. We have it in all of your favorite Tosh bases - including new BFL Sock and Pure Silk Lace! And, the story goes that Labradorite has powers of metamorphosis and self-transformation, perfect for this time of New Year's reflections and resolutions!

Now, what will you make while you reflect? How about a gorgeous pair of Torrent Socks or a Lettuce Leaf Scarf using just one skein of Tosh Sock? Just be sure to pick up a set of Limited Edition Spark Stitch Markers; they were specially crafted to coordinate with the yarn!

December 2016 - Capricorn

Finally, here's your Capricorn yarnoscope:

Once you have an objective in your sights, Capricorn, you won't stop until you reach it! We have no fear about your sticking to your New Year's Resolutions, but maybe a companion or crafting buddy doesn't have your persistence and drive. Why not form a Resolution Coalition with a few friends or fellow crafters and help keep each other accountable in reaching your respective goals? They'll appreciate the help, and you'll love leading them in the charge!

Madelinetosh Limited Edition
It's time for the final installment in our Limited Edition Toshstrology 2016 Series: Capricorn! You goal-oriented Goats will be glad to see the collection complete, and what an ending it is: a magnificent mélange of forest, emerald, and gray-greens, both wintery and bright at the same time! Youll love it in any of the gorgeous Tosh bases we carry!

This lovely hue lends itself to projects of all kinds, from lace to garter stitch - you name it, this color will make it look great! Kristen whipped up a beautiful cowl to bookend her Toshstrology Collection: the Capricorn Cowl matches the Aquarius Hat from January, and takes just 2 skeins of Tosh Home!

And our Monika created a 2-color project with Christmas colors in mind: the Cheermeister Snood uses a skein of Tosh Vintage in each of the November (Sagittarius) and December colorways to create a striped snood with candy cane and pine cone lace accents!

Capricorn is available in the following Madelinetosh yarn weights:
Tosh Merino Light, Tosh DK, Pashmina, Tosh Vintage, Tosh Sock, A.S.A.P., Prairie, Tosh Chunky, Tosh Merino DK, Tosh Sport, and Twist Light.

It's sure to further energize even the most enthusiastic Sagittarius, and the rest of us as well - after all, what better way to stand out in the snow (or on your next trip, you travel-loving centaurs!) than with a pop of bold red?!

October 2016 - Scorpio

Here's the Scorpio yarnoscope:
A natural born leader, the Scorpio is determined, resourceful, and always up for a challenge! With the holiday season coming up, Scorpio, you are the perfect person to organize a charity crafting event or fundraiser for your community. How about starting a preemie hat drive for your local NICU, or a collection event for those in need of warm winter clothes? With your dedication and passion, it's sure to be a success!

Madelinetosh Limited Edition
It's the season of Scorpio, and this month's installment in our Toshstrology series pays beautiful homage to this bold water sign with a lovely mermaid green! It's refreshing and cool, the perfect balm for that passionate Scorpio spirit!

It doesn't take much to be inspired by this pretty, deep teal, and we have quite a cache of designs to go with it!

Rachel designed the gorgeously squishy Scorpio Cowl, which takes simple Fisherman's Rib to a new level of loveliness, and uses just 2 skeins of Tosh Merino Light.

Chris whipped out his lace knitting chops for the Antares Slouch, which features leafy eyelet details and a comfortably slouchy shape - just one skein of Tosh Merino DK is all it takes for a warm and beautiful hat!

And Kristen busted out a beanie in a broken rib pattern: one skein of Tosh Vintage makes the simple but perfect Scorpio Hat, part of Kristen's Toshstrology Collection!

September 2016 - Libra

Libra, here's your yarnoscope:
Libra, with your social and cooperative nature, you're perfectly suited for a joint or group project. Why not start a special blanket with a friend that you each work on or complete parts of? When you sew your squares or sections together at the end, you can vow to share custody of it - or, give it as a heartfelt, handmade gift!

Madelinetosh Limited Edition
It's time to balance the scales in favor of the Air signs: Libra is an awe-inspiring mix of orchid, plum, and Tyrian purple that even the ancient Romans would approve of - and that's fitting, as Rome was founded under the Libra sign!

You beauty-loving and artistic Libras may not need any inspiration to get right to work with this gorgeous color, but for the rest of us, here are a few pattern suggestions!

Kristen has designed the Libra Mitts using 1 skein of Vintage, and they are beyond pretty!

Monika whipped up the Hydrocarbon Cowl in just the blink of an eye with Home, and Lina created another cute animal in A.S.A.P. - a Unicorn! Squee!

August 2016 - Virgo

Here is your Virgo yarnoscope:
you're typically shy, so now's the time to get out of your comfort zone. It's Fall Festival season, so how about entering one of your knitted or crocheted creations in the county fair? With your skill and attention to detail, you're sure to win the blue ribbon!

Madelinetosh Limited Edition
It's the hottest month of the summer, so how about cooling off with a lovely shade of green with hints of gray? Virgo is a peacefully perfect verdigris hue to coordinate with this Earth sign, as cool and creamy as the porcelain skin of a goddess!

It's ideal for you calm-seeking Virgos, especially in the back-to-school season, when your analytical and hard-working nature kicks into high gear!

Kristen designed the one-skein-wonder Virgo Shawlette as part of her Toshstrology Collection with just one hank of Tosh Merino Light - it features a garter stitch body and lace edging in a classic crescent shape for easy styling!

Monika whipped up a Gilded Frame shawl with just 2 skeins of A.S.A.P., and Chris knitted up one of his own amazing Hippie Swamp Witch shawls with 2 skeins of Pashmina!

July 2016 - Leo

Leo, here's your roaring yarnoscope:
You're confident, dominant, and creative - all perfect traits for starting and leading a new crafting group! Put the word out in your community and gather your followers for fiber-related fun; start a weekly knit or crochet night, head up a yarn-shop hop, or plan a fun crafting retreat with some friends. As a natural-born leader, you're just the person to show others the way to wonderful new projects and skills!

Madelinetosh Limited Edition
Summer's in full swing and we're in the mood for colors that are bright, boisterous, and loud:

Leo is a bold, rusty orange color that just screams "leader of the pack", and we're sure you'll agree it's just as juicy as a cold popsicle on a hot day!

Kristen's created a new pattern for her Toshstrology Collection that will make you want to roar: the Leo Hat has a fun lacy pattern, and uses just one skein of Tosh Vintage!

Monika has caught the bug for bulky shawls, so she whipped up the Lemon Bang Shawl by Taiga Hilliard using just 2 skeins of ASAP - it's squishy and fun! Jenn also loved the Leo color so much she snagged a skein of Tosh Sport and is working on the Traveling Cable Handwarmers, a free pattern from Purl Soho!

Leo is available in the following Madelinetosh yarn weights:
Tosh Merino Light, Tosh DK, Pashmina, Tosh Sock, Home, Prairie, Silk/Merino, Tosh Chunky, and Tosh Merino DK. .

June 2016 - Cancer

Cancer, here's your yarnoscope:
While you may be known as sensitive and moody, you're actually in tune with your emotions and the feelings of others, especially loved ones. You're intuitive and loyal, too, and find it easy to tell how others are feeling even if they don't outwardly show it. Turn that intuition to your loved ones: is someone close to you having a hard time? Would a simple handmade item make them feel better? Think about knitting or crocheting a gift for a friend or family member who may need a little of that Cancerian care!

Madelinetosh Limited Edition
Just in time to cool off those hot summer temperatures: chill down with Cancer! Inspired by the deep, watery blue of the sea where The Crab makes its home, this peaceful and calming colorway is a balm to the eyes and soul!

Like the ocean herself, this beautiful blue has inspired us to new feats of creativity! Kristen's asymmetrical Cancer Shawl, her Toshstrology Collection installment this month, has all the lightness of summer in Dandelion yarn. Rachel is featuring the full reveal of her On the Cusp; this gem was designed to celebrate you special ones born under two signs!

A Cancer herself, Heather couldn't resist this captivating cobalt colorway; she designed the Waving Water Shawlette to capture the watery nature of the Cancer sign - it uses just one skein of Pashmina! And Jeanne came up with a gorgeous one-skein wonder in Tosh Chunky: The Thneed Cowl/Scarf is a Mobius-style scarf, and it looks extra cool with coordinating buttons!

Cancer is available in the following Madelinetosh yarn weights:
Prairie, Silk/Merino, Tosh Merino, Tosh Merino DK, and Tosh Sport.
 

As if you needed another reason to love The Crab (and this colorway), look at it in our "Toshstrology" Blanket! You can click on the swatch to go to the free pattern.

Chicken Boots' delightful patterns this month feature a 'crabby' Stitch Marker Pouch and a wristlet with animal constellations!

May 2016 - Gemini

Gemini, here's your yarnoscope:
Your versatility and energetic nature mean you're likely to take on diverse and sundry projects - just be careful not to get too many things on the needles, as you're easily bored (and a bit indecisive at times) and we don't want that beautiful yarn to languish untouched! How about this: since you're a social animal and always up for a bit of fun, why not take on a project with a friend or group that you can all make together? Knit- or crochet-along, anyone?

Madelinetosh Limited Edition
Welcome, Gemini! Those born under this Air sign are blessed with artistic and creative qualities and are often social butterflies, so the Tosh dyers created a lovely, vibrant pinkish-purple to represent The Twins!

If you're looking for inspiration, check out what we've been whipping up! Kristen created the delightful and quick-knitting Gemini Cowlette with just one skein of Tosh Sport as part of her Toshstrology 2016 Collection; Monika has designed a gorgeous, lacy, crocheted hoody-cowl using one skein of Prairie that she's playfully calling Twice As Fun!

Jeanne joined in the fun as well with a stunning, lace-studded shawl design called Boysenberry Sherbet, which uses 2 skeins of Pashmina for an ultra-luxurious project; and for those color-lovers born between two signs, Rachel has planned a special design called On the Cusp, which uses 2 of the Toshstrology colorways in Twist Light: Gemini, plus next month's Cancer installment!

Gemini is available in the following Madelinetosh yarn weights:
Tosh Merino Light, Pashmina, Tosh Vintage, Tosh Sock, A.S.A.P., Dandelion, Home, Prairie, Silk/Merino, Tosh Chunky, Tosh Merino, Tosh Merino DK, and Tosh Sport.

Our Chicken Boots notions this month are a double delight: A Gemini Stitch Marker Pouch and a Gemini Wristlet!

April 2016 - Taurus

Taurus, here's your yarnoscope:
Your signature traits of perseverance and determination will help you make a plan to tackle those UFOs hanging around - come on, you can do it! Some might call you stubborn, but that's a characteristic you can use to your advantage: when learning a new crafting skill or technique, you don't give up until you get it right! Perhaps now is the time to tackle that lace shawl you've been eyeing or try your hand at intricate colorwork!

Madelinetosh Limited Edition
March came in like a lion, and April's going out like a... bull! The Taurus installment of our Toshstrology 2016 Collection has come charging into the shop, and it's every bit as bright and boisterous as its namesake: a light and limey tonal green that will have you thinking spring!

Some of the Beans are already into it: Kristen whipped up a leafy Taurus Slouch Hat with one skein of Merino DK for her Toshstrology pattern collection, Jeanne used 1 skein of Tosh Chunky in a cuddly Swirling Taurus Beanie, and Chris designed a striking Arrows and Flights Shawl with 2 skeins of Twist Light!

Taurus is available in the following Madelinetosh yarn weights:

Toshstrology Blanket
Of course, our installment wouldn't be complete without two new gadgets from Chicken Boots to honor The Bull: A Taurus Stitch Marker Pouch and a Taurus Wristlet!

March 2016 - Aries

Here's your fiery March yarnoscope:
Aries, you're naturally energetic (and brave), and warmer weather is on the way, so why not try a more "active" form of crafting? Knitting or crocheting while walking, or while riding a stationary bike, might be right up your alley! Get a friend to join and make a little challenge out of it (you're naturally competitive, after all!). It might be just the thing you need to bust out of dormant winter into active spring!

Madelinetosh Limited Edition
We're on fire this month: introducing the first Fire sign of the Toshstrology 2016 Series, Aries! This gorgeous blend of comely corals and sunset oranges is sizzling hot and ever so eye-catching! It's perfect for energetic, extroverted Arians - and everybody else, too!

We're already knitting up a (fire)storm with it: Kristen designed a piquant Aries Shawlette in Tosh Merino Light as part of her Toshstrology Collection, and Chris put spicy Tosh Sport to the test in his Arietis Mitts!

Aries is still available in the following Madelinetosh yarn weights:
Tosh Vintage, Tosh Sock, A.S.A.P., Dandelion, Prairie, Tosh Merino, and Twist Light.

Chicken Boots is firing things up as well with another two special Stitch Marker Pouches: Check them out here and here!

February 2016 - Pisces

Pisces, here's your yarnoscope:
You're sensitive and know how to listen to your intuition, so if it's telling you to try something new, go for it! How about weaving or spinning? Your love for the fiber arts may lead you to make new acquaintances and crafting friends - why not look in your area for a crafting group to join? You may find your new passion and a new buddy, to boot!

Madelinetosh Limited Edition
This month's astrological sign is Pisces, and we're diving right in to celebrate this Water sign! Madelinetosh dreamed up a heavenly tonal blue color to represent the watery origins of The Fish, and also as a nod to Pisces's association with mystics and dreamers.

Speaking of dreaming, the Beans have been doing it:

Kristen designed the Pisces Cowl in Tosh Merino Light and paired it with two additional complementary colors in Madelinetosh Unicorn Tails. The pattern features a pretty fishtail lace and some color blocking - the best of two knitting worlds!

And for the crochet-lovers, Monika has created the Do or Do Not Mittens: because as Yoda says, there's no "try" with these pretty, handwarming fingerless mitts - but you can choose whether you do or do not want to make them into mittens! No matter which kind you pick, you only need one skein of Twist Light.

Pisces is still available in the following Madelinetosh yarn weights:
A.S.A.P.
 

This month's knitted and crocheted stripes for the "Toshstrology" Blanket work really well in their wavy texture - quite watery! You can click on the swatch to go to the free pattern.
Toshstrology Blanket
Of course, Chicken Boots is right on theme this month with two special Stitch Marker Pouches: Moons and Star Signs!

January 2016 - Aquarius

Aquarian Yarnoscope for 2016:
Aquarius, you're coming out of winter hibernation and starting to tie up loose ends from last year; this means finishing those UFOs and reorganizing your stash! Your eye for style will guide you to pick the perfect new patterns for this year, and your innovative nature might even lead you to design something of your own!

Madelinetosh Limited Edition
We're kicking things off this year with Aquarius (January 19 - February 20), an Air sign associated with the personality traits of inventiveness and originality - fitting for the launch of a new yarn collection! Tosh created a gorgeous shade in a mix of purples that's perfectly on trend (another Aquarian attribute!)

And, Kristen of Marinade Designs is back as well, with an all-new Toshstrology Collection and E-book! Kristen's Aquarius Hat uses 1 skein of Tosh Vintage.

We've got the crocheters covered, too: as part of a new, quarterly crochet collection, Leanne has created the cozy One Way Cowl using just 2 skeins of Tosh Home!
 

This month's knitted and crocheted stripes for the "Toshstrology" Blanket are so pretty in purple, you might want to include more than just one in your blanket! You can click on the swatch to go to the free pattern.

January's pouches by Chicken Boots feature two fun celestial signs prints and are perfect for storing stitch markers, spare change, or your star charts - choose between Antique Signs and Modern Signs!

December 2015 - Dried Fruit

Madelinetosh Limited Edition
No matter how you feel about that old holiday staple, fruitcake, you're sure to fire up your sweet tooth for some Dried Fruit! This juicy color packs all the flavor of the fruits of summer for a bit of brightness in the bleak of winter, and we thought it made the perfect after-meal treat to round out our Tasty Tosh 2015 Series!

The ripe reds, luscious purples, and vivid golds and oranges are just the recipe you need for busting any winter blues, and what better way to do it than with delicious wool?
 

The Stollen Mitts knitting pattern was inspired by this recipe for Stollen, Kristen's favorite holiday treat made with dried fruit - compliments of her family's German heritage. You can click on the crockpot to download the recipe PDF.
Tosh LE Recipe
And if you'd like another deliciously sweet treat without calories for this holiday season, this month's Chocolate Truffle soap by Black Rock Mud smells as decadent as it lathers - and you won't gain weight, even after having seconds (or thirds). Yum!

November 2015 - Garlic and Onions

Madelinetosh Limited Edition
Ask any chef what staples they always keep in their kitchen, and chances are garlic and onions are two of them. These two potent ingredients add a distinct flavor to just about any dish, which is why we chose them to inspire our November Tasty Tosh color!

Deep purples from red onions with undertones of golden tan and white, this tonal color is truly stunning to knit or crochet.
 

Many of our favorite holiday dishes (Roasted Garlic and Caramelized Onion Jam with Brie cheese & Crackers anyone?) use these two ingredients, so it just seemed fitting to share one of our favorite versions from the Pretty Prudent Blog with you. You can click on the crockpot to download the recipe PDF.

Need a sweet break from all the savory smelly goodness? Check out Black Rock Mud's Pumpkin Pie soap, complete with a little whipped cream on top! Just make sure to keep it away from your kids, it really smells and looks good enough to eat!

October 2015 - Sugar Skulls

Madelinetosh Limited Edition
October is here and so is one of our favorite fall holidays: Dia de los Muertos! While this annual celebration to honor deceased loved ones coincides with Halloween and All Saints Day, it's steeped in its own special traditions, including the making of colorful and festive Sugar Skulls - so, we thought we'd make some of our own!

The color is a vibrant mix of teal, yellow, pink, and rusty purple to represent the lively hues used to decorate the hand-crafted skulls given as special gifts and remembrances during Day of the Dead celebrations.
 

To make some decorative sugar skulls of your own, check out this helpful tutorial that Emma used to make the amazing sugar skulls in our photos - just click on the crockpot! Aren't they fantastic?!
Tosh LE Recipe
As a special bonus, the gals at Black Rock Mud have created a yummy Mini-Mudpot recipe for a delicious Pumpkin Facial Mask Treatment!

September 2015 - Fresh Picked Huckleberries

Madelinetosh Limited Edition
Because of our own Huckleberry (you know, the adorable blonde, curly-haired one), we thought a color inspired by his namesake berry would be fun for September's Tasty Tosh installment.

Fresh Picked Huckleberries is a gorgeous purply pink tonal color and is the perfect way to finish off the warm months! It's time for making jams, baking pies, and maybe even a buckle or two, just like the Hucklberry Buckle (isn't that fun to say?!?!?) recipe we've included with this month's Tasty Tosh Color!
 
This Huckleberry Buckle recipe from Saveur is one of our favorites (and perfect, since Jeanne's nickname for our Huckleberry is "Hucky Bucky"), and is great with just about any kind of berries you have on hand! You can click on the crockpot to download the recipe PDF.
Tosh LE Recipe
Still not berried out? Check out Black Rock Mud's soap for the month - it smells so berrylicious, we almost want to eat it, too! - Huckleberry might not be edible, but after using it, you'll smell like you are!

August 2015 - Roasted Hatch Chiles

Madelinetosh Limited Edition
A staple of New Mexico cuisine, the Hatch Chile is also a favorite in our kitchens - the subtle heat of the fresh green variety adds the perfect kick to stews, Southwestern dishes, and especially some delicious Green Chile Cornbread!

Roasting brings out the flavor even more, and Madelinetosh has captured the colors of tasty roasted peppers perfectly in this month's color: shades of mouthwatering green blend beautifully with toasty browns to evoke the singular look, smell, and taste of peppers gently charred over an open flame. We can hardly wait to get our hot little hands on some!
 

Kristen loves to cook things in her cast iron skillet, and this yummy Cast Iron Hatch Chile Cornbread smells so divine while it's cooking, it's hard to wait for it to come out of the pan! You can click on the crockpot to download the recipe PDF.

To join our Southwestern celebration, Black Rock Mud has created an equally tasty-looking soap to go along with this month's theme!
Valley of Fire is layered to look like the incredible land formations in the Valley of Fire State Park, a national landmark and the oldest state park in Nevada. Fittingly, the scent is peppery, musky, and like our favorite chiles, absolutely addictive!

July 2015 - Free Range Eggs

Madelinetosh Limited Edition
We've gone out to the garden for this month's Tasty Tosh 2015 installment - inspired by a photo from one of our local Reno egg farms, Reynolds Ranch, we wanted to create a color that showed off just how gorgeous free range eggs really are!

We think this color is perfect - plus, eggs make up the base of some of our favorite dishes! Whether it's a fast frittata, easy egg salad, or a quick quiche, we're on board! Combine that with the image of smooth, glossy, cool eggshells in soft shades of cream, minty blue, peach and rusty brown, and you've got one appetizing colorway!
 

Kristen's chickens (a.k.a. the "Ladies") produce an abundance of eggs in the summer, so she makes a lot of quiche. This is her basic recipe that is perfect for using whatever veggies you have on hand! You can click on the crockpot to download the recipe PDF.

May 2015 - Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

Madelinetosh Limited Edition
Each month for all of 2015, we'll release a new color in a selection the most popular Madelinetosh yarns and include the delicious recipe that goes with it.

Nothing puts the taste of spring in our mouths like strawberries - there's just something about seeing the first real, dirt-grown, rich and ruby-red berries in the market that means warm weather is here to stay! Combined with rhubarb, another harbinger of spring, they make a perfect dessert for those who like a little tart in their treats (and in their yarn!).

Kristen can't wait for the rhubarb to start popping up in her mother-in-law's garden so she can start making her favorite strawberry-rhubarb pie recipe - the juicy red, delicate pink, and creamy white yarn has piqued our appetite, too!
 

Kristen's recipe comes from food blogger Smitten Kitchen - we can already smell the sugary, heady fragrance of the berries bursting in the oven, along with the scent of buttery pastry getting flaky and golden... slurp! You can click on the crockpot to download the recipe PDF.

6th Exclusive - Black Tie Affair

Madelinetosh Limited Edition
Just in time for those fancy holiday parties, we've got our newest limited edition color in the Tailor-made Tosh series: Black Tie Affair!

While everybody else is buttoned down in tuxes, you can show them that black and white doesn't have to be boring with this gorgeous mix of sultry greys and blacks. Even a simple shawlette to wear over that sleeveless evening gown would look fancy in this sophisticated yarn!

Why not try the Teasdale Shawl by Corinna Ferguson? It would be beautiful in Dandelion! Even the manly man in your life will enjoy the subtle hues of this yarn. You can knit him a warm and stylish hat - the simple stitch pattern of Ann Norling's Spiral Rib Hat would look amazing in the beautiful tonal hand-dyed colors, and you could choose any weight for the project. How about thick and cushy Home? Yes, please!

5th Exclusive - Penny Loafers

Madelinetosh Limited Edition
Earlier this year, we asked you to vote for your favorite of two Tahoe-inspired exclusive colors in our Tailor-made Tosh series from Madelinetosh: Blue Jean Baby and Penny Loafers. While Blue Jean Baby, a mix of pale blues reminiscent of that favorite pair of worn-in jeans in all of our closets, was the clear winner, Penny Loafers still got almost 35% of the vote!

We took that to mean you liked it, so we've decided to release this rich blend of russet tones as our fifth installment in the Tailor-made Tosh series. After all, nothing conjures memories of back-to-school and Fall like a brand-new pair of loafers! You can enjoy memories of those favorite shoes as you work up your favorite weight of Madelinetosh yarn in this amazing, comforting color.

4th Exclusive - Americana Style

Madelinetosh Limited Edition
July is the perfect month to celebrate all things American with the 4th exclusive color in our Tailor-made Tosh series, Americana Style!

You may be wondering, just what is Americana style? Well, we think it's the kind of style that makes Americans unique from one part of the country to the other. For some, it might be a plain white tee-shirt, Wranglers, and your favorite dusty pair of cowboy boots, for others it might be cut-offs, a tank top, and flip-flops. Whatever your Americana style, one thing is for sure, there is nothing more quintessentially American than wearing a bit of red, white, and blue!

This colorway features a muted (think vintage US flag) palette of this trio of colors in all of your favorite Tosh yarns!

3rd Exclusive - Blue Jean Baby

Madelinetosh Limited Edition
Available now by popular vote, we have the 3rd Exclusive Tailor-made Tosh colorway from Madelinetosh - Blue Jean Baby!

We posted a photo of two lovely Tahoe-inspired colors on Facebook and Instagram, asking all of you to weigh in on which one you liked best. Of the 530+ votes we received, 346 voted for this lovely shade of blue! It reminds us of that favorite pair of ripped and faded blue jeans, and we couldn't help quoting Elton John in this homage to America's favorite wardrobe staple, "Blue Jean Baby!"

2nd Exclusive - Technicolor Dreamcoat

Madelinetosh Limited Edition
So... what do you get when you cross one brave lady, a talented hair dresser, a super talented yarn dyer, a rainbow, and... a unicorn? Answer: Technicolor Dreamcoat!!

This color was inspired by an instagram photo of a very uniquely dyed head of hair that Amy (the owner of Tosh) posted a couple of months ago. I couldn't help but ask if she could turn that photo into our next Tailor Made Tosh custom color. Boy, did she deliver!

Complete with bright, crazy colors from all across the map, this color is "Rainbowtastic" (as Monika would say) in every way. Not only that, but this color is so unique that there are many different-looking dye batches within each Madelinetosh weight. Each batch has varied tonal leanings, so your skeins will be truly unique and one-of-a-kind! Never again to be seen on our shelves (or anyone else's), this color is available in many of your favorite Tosh bases. Have fun!

1st Exclusive - Thrift Shop Dress Shirt

Madelinetosh Limited Edition
For January 2014, Tosh created this gorgeous colorway that we've lovingly named "Thrift Shop Dress Shirt."

The pale tones of beiges and grey paired with blue and deep green reminded us of the vintage dress shirts often seen worn by hipsters or those bold enough to wear these colors all at once. We also love us some Macklemore (the rapper behind chart-topper, "Thrift Shop"), so it just seemed to fit! Jimmy really liked the contrast of the paler tones mixed with slightly darker ones that make this color truly unique, and perfect for your next project or to add to your stash. The best part is, it's Limited Edition Tosh! What more could you ask for?

We provide endless possibilities for you including yarn, knitting gifts, needles, kits, sale yarn, free knitting patterns, and more! Jimmy Beans Wool is Your Local Yarn Store... Online!
