Most of the time I feel like one of the luckiest people in the world to be able to do what I do for a living. Last week was no exception to that especially when the 21 Color Slouch Hat kits came in from Blue Sky Fibers. The kit was made with teeny skeins of Woolstok and I became dreamy, not only from the colours but from the soft feel of what looks like a toothy yarn. As soon as Odessa started knitting on the kit sample we knew we had to order all the colours of this yarn. Blue Sky Fibers creates really gorgeous yarn. They are also really kind people and provide us with great advice and tons of support as well and within 24 hours I had a kit in my hand for the Endless Wrap (which is pretty impressive because it has to come from the US).
The lovely green colour and soft, fluffy wool had me winding immediately and casting on. I don’t think I have ever knit anything this quickly. It might be called the Endless Wrap (and don’t get me wrong, it is huge…really really huge) but it was so inspiring to work with. The pattern is quite simple and elegant, but a little rustic too. I will definitely leave this beauty in the shop for everyone to see and try on, but I may have to sneak it home in between for a few nights out.
