Stash Enhancement: MadTosh Sport.

This past Thursday, my friend Lindsay came over to visit and to check out the new MadTosh store. I decided that this would be a good time to buy a sweater's worth of yarn, as I rarely ever do. I looked in my Ravelry queue and the patterns in my library and decided that the Lowry Pullover from Knitscene Fall 2011 would be perfect.

I decided on madelinetosh 80/10/10 sport weight, but then it took me a long time to pick a color. I needed five skeins, and almost all the colors I wanted had only four available at the time. After some help from Lindsay and the women working in the shop, I picked the colorway Rosegold, which is definitely not something I would normally pick.

As the name implies, it's shades of rosey-pink and gold. The more I look at it, the more I like it. I've told myself I can't cast this on until I at least finish my Tempest Cardigan, of which I have the sleeves, button band, and hem left to knit. It will probably be a while. I might cheat a bit though and knit up my gauge swatch before I'm done with it, though.
