It's no surprise that we are MAD for Madelinetosh. So mad, in fact, we couldn't wait to let you in on a little secret! For 2018, we're revamping our Subscriptions and upping our Tosh game from two clubs to three! Mark your calendars, because in the December 15th newsletter we'll reveal each new-and-improved Tosh Club and open them up for enrollment. At the same time, we'll introduce our new Subscription Wizard - that's right, a wizard! - to help you find the club that's right for you!

So, are you...

    ✔ Bonkers for blankets? (Bingo!)
    ✔ Psyched about shawls? (Sweet!)
    ✔ Or just crazy for collecting? (We've got that too!)

Depending on how "mad" you are, you might just join them all! Each subscription is capped, so be sure to check back on the 15th. And for you non-committal types, we'll even have an a la carte "Quick Shot" option with exclusive bases you previously couldn't get from anyone but Tosh. AHHH, the madness!

(Psst... to our current Tosh Club subscribers, sit tight! We'll be contacting you about the roll-over process soon!)

Our obsession with Tosh knows no bounds. Nadia, our social media guru, was so inspired she looked to the runway to help her choose Tosh colors for this coming winter. Check out her blog post to see her favorite color trends from the season!

Looking for high fashion knits using Tosh yarns? The gorgeous Plum Dandi book features two quick-knit projects perfect for the holiday season:

Zombie Xmas BBQ
 

Speaking of madness, this month's Lorna's Limited Edition color is quite possibly the maddest of all. Feast your eyes on "Zombie Xmas BBQ," a splattershot recreation of the original, for some tongue-in-cheek holiday humor! Legend has it the green is for zombies, the red is for brains, and the grey is for coals on a barbecue. Add some splattershot speckles and... well, the holidays can get a little messy, right?

Grab yourself some brains - err, skeins! - and get crafting!

As promised from last week's newsletter, here's the scoop on January's kit, now available for pre-order:

  • January 2018 Designer: Amanda Jarvis of Lorna's Laces
