I pulled this sublime hank of Little Wool Co. Wool Alpaca Boucle from my stash yesterday.
I could stare at it all day long.
It’s meant to be a wrap, although you could use it for anything you want. Including combining it with another yarn to add interesting colour and texture variation to your project.
Every turn of the hank shows a different colour facet.
It’s soooooo gorgeous!!!
Look at the lustre when it’s in the sun.
It sits beside me as I knit a nice, sensible project. The yarn I’m knitting with is lovely, and I’m already planning other projects in it because it’s actually great stuff. But it’s well, just not as exciting as the colours I’m looking at.
Having the hank beside me is good motivation. Knit this practical number, and then you get to play with the fun stuff!
I’m almost afraid to knit it. Would I love it as much knitted up as a shawl? But then again, it might turn out to be an all-time favourite!
Or perhaps I could mix it through that black mohair I’ve been hoarding, and turn it into something quite cool!
Oh the mind spins! Isn’t it great what a good yarn can do to the creative juices!?
