Re: Knitters/Hookers/Spinners/Dyers *WIP* 8/2

I cant speak for everyone, but here is why *I* like madelinetosh. She does mainly semi solid type stuff, not too many actual colorways but the way she dyes it gives great depth and the colors are AMAZING. Her bases are really nice, and I dont know what bases she uses, Ive never seen her tosh merino light base from any other dyer, and her MCN is amazingly soft, but so is any other MCN, I have some from Becoming Art that feels like the same but Im not sure if they use the same bases or not. For me its more of a color thing. I have a hard time finding semisolids that are as rich and deep as hers. Plus, her prices are great. Her TML (fingering) is only 14 a skein. I think most of them run btw 15-18 a skein, there are a couple higher quality bases that have silk and stuff like that are expensive, like 30 a skein, but ive never had any of those. I tend to stick to MCN, TML, and the tosh dk.

Im not big into DD, so ive never understood the hype there.
