Wolseley WOol

WIP Wednesday – Kari is Wooing Woolstok

Of the projects I have on the needles right now, I’m most excited about the Fallen Cloud shawl by Lisa Hannes. My love of this project springs from the design—those cables are gorgeous—and the yarn I’ve chosen, Woolstok Worsted in Quartz Crystal.

Blue Sky Fibres’ Woolstok is my newest favourite yarn. The bounce and stretch of this yarn is unparalleled. Although I was attracted to the yarn’s colour, tooth and loft at first, I held back on purchasing it. But that all changed when I wore Mona’s Endless Wrap by Sylvia Hager, in the colourway Golden Meadow, for an afternoon in the shop. The elasticity and warmth of the fabric clinched the sale. I had to have it.

And I have not been disappointed. I love knitting with this yarn because it feels so darn good in my hands, and the stitches virtually spring off my needles. If you want a timeless garment that is a joy to work up, you can’t go wrong with Woolstok in either pattern, Fallen Cloud or Endless Wrap.
