WIP Wednesday – Wolf In Alpaca Clothing

IMG_4608

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!
