stash & plotting.

There’s nothing better than a yarn delivery. Last week, I received three amazing skeins of Tanis Fiber Arts Green Label Aran in the chris gray, lucky penny, and shadow colorways for some baby gifts. This yarn is so gorgeous it might be my new favorite, even though I used it to knit my French Braid Cardigan last year to much admiration.

I also scooped up six skeins of my go-to (and most often used) worsted weight yarn, Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage, in the espadrilles colorway. Now, I don’t normally wear pink, but the light socket brightness of this particular color way just drew me in; its really unique and I wanted to hip my wardrobe a bit. I haven’t nailed down the exact sweater pattern for this particular yarn yet, but I’m edging toward either Yellow Brick Road, the Effortless Cardigan, or Perkins Cove (I saw it knit in worsted weight yarn by Fringe Association and gushed).

I’m leaning towards Yellow Brick because I think this shocking pink really deserves a bit of lace detail.

Ideas? Thoughts? Feedback please? Any other suggestions for what sweater I should knit with the tosh? Your favorites? What would make this color way shine?
