These Yarns Come In Peace!

Urth Yarns Uneek Monokrom Kashmir Mono

If you're like us, your winter crafting might be in of need of a pick-me-up! Our needles and hooks are feelin' the winter blues. The only cure?! Why, bright and saturated hues of the softest and squishiest fibers, of course! Our friends at Urth Yarns are coming to our rescue, bringing some much-needed color to our stash, with two new yarns!

Monokrom is 435 yards of fingering weight yarny goodness! Each skein of 100% Extrafine Superwash Merino is soft to the touch and dyed in an eye-catching hue. These tonal beauties are available in a rainbow of colors, providing plenty of options for your next project. Super, duper saturated is the best way to describe Monokrom!

If cashmere is more your cup of tea, then Kashmir Mono fits the bill! 100% cashmere, this yarn is also a fingering weight. With a generous 220 yards, each skein is buttery soft. (Seriously, like buttah! Nothing beats cashmere, huh?!) Similar to its merino counterpart, each skein of Kashmir Mono is dyed tonaly, giving you some slight color variation. This is one of those yarns that, once you have it, you just won't want to part with it!

We haven't told you the best part yet... for every skein of Urth Yarns that is sold, a tree is planted in Africa, as part of Urth's partnership with Trees for the Future! Planting trees in these areas help to prevent soil degradation, and also provides food, marketable products, and fuel wood for families, increasing their income by 400%! Wowowow - knit good AND do good!

Calm Before The Storm

Guten tag! As we visit some of Jimmy's most memorable travel destinations, February's Madelinetosh Limited Edition color takes us not too far from last month's Baudelaire! Drum roll, please... we're headed to Cologne, Germany, with Calm Before the Storm! Featuring dark grey, silvery grey, natural, and dusty pink/purple tones, this colorway is simply stunning!

Last year, during H&H Cologne, Jimmy had dinner with Amy (from Madelinetosh!). They enjoyed their meal, while talking of and sharing inspiration for future limited edition Tosh colors. As they left the restaurant, the outline of the cathedral right across the street was framed by storm clouds. The colors of the cathedral and stormy sky struck a chord with Jimmy. When she saw Calm Before the Storm for the first time, she immediately thought back to her time with Amy in Germany! And, as they say, the rest is history!

Available in 3 of your favorite Tosh bases, Tosh Merino Light, Pashmina, and Tosh Vintage, you can snag your very own skein of Calm Before the Storm! Don't sit back and let this one pass you by - once it's gone, it's gone!

Yarn Magic!

Ready to be amazed?! We're going to teach you a really simple magic trick that you can do from the comfort of your own home, as demonstrated by our sweet customer, Jessica McKinley, of BHD Crafts. Jessica shared a photo with us of her Hikoo Abracadabra under UV light - the vividness is, dare we say, ultraviolet!

HiKoo Abracadabra

Step 1: Purchase a skein (or two!) of Hikoo Abracadabra!
Step 2: We'll ship you your skeins!
Step 3: Open your package!
Step 4: Knit, crochet, and craft to your heart's content!
Step 5: Once your project is complete, invite your family and friends over for a daytime gettogether! (Brunch, anyone?!)
Step 6: This is where the trick comes in... walk outside (in the sun!), do a quick twirl, and shout your favorite magic word (Abracadbra might do the trick, hehe!). Before the eyes of your family and friends, your project will quickly change from cream to a bright, vibrant color! When you walk back inside, out of the sun, your project will return to its original color. MAGIC!
Step 7: Bask in the amazement of your loved ones! It's up to you whether you want to divulge the inner workings of your trick. You're the magician!

Tosh Blanket KAL!

From Grandma With Love

Don't you just love a pattern with a beautiful story behind it? So do we! This year's Tosh Blanket KAL features Melanie Berg's blanket pattern, From Grandma With Love. Not only is the blanket simply stunning, featuring knit squares that are joined together using the single crochet method, but we absolutely fell in love with the sweet intention of the pattern - to provide Melanie's children with a physical representation of their grandma's love, after she passed away in 2015.


Each month, you'll receive a skein of scrumptious Tosh Sport! January brought us the first border skein, and February is bringing us our first square! Our customer service Bean, Sarah, is knitting along with you! She picked the Jimmy's Choice colorway, and was treated to a beautiful blue, as February's color!

Ready to join the fun?! Club members who join now will receive both January and February's skeins! Perfect to give as a gift, or keep for yourself, this is a wonderful item to pass on as a family heirloom for generations to come!

Project On Our Needles!

Cassidy Om Shawl

Knit by Cassidy, the Om Shawl is pretty knit-tastic! It can be styled in so many different ways; drape it around your back and over your arms as a cozy stole, button up the top sides and pull it over your head as a poncho, button half of the side buttons and wrap it twice around your neck like a cowl letting the corners drape down like a triangle shawl. Lay it over your lap for some extra warmth on a cool morning as you sip tea. Button all of the side buttons and use it as a nursing cowl. The options are endless! A quick project, this textured knit will you keep you engaged until the last stitch!
