I have a whole new kind of fiber to share with you today! I’m knitting my first ever project in wolf. Yup! You read that right … wolf fiber. It is very much like the samoyed blend yarn that I knit with quite often … the same beautiful softness and loft … but in a gorgeous taupey-grey. It is a real privilege to get to knit with something like this.
The recipient is looking for an chullo style hat with an alpaca motif on it so I did a little searching and sketching and came up with what I think is a fun mix of patterns and motifs. The hat has intarsia stars on the earflaps, a wave pattern for the brim, and I’m in the process of knitting some happy looking alpacas. Despite a few false starts (and pattern re-writes ) it is working up fairly quickly.
What have you been working on this week? Have you tried a new fibers or material lately? Do tell!
