I guarantee that if you like to knit or crochet or work with wool in any way, you will LOVE this post!
Oh Lordy! I'm not sure the photo even does them justice! The hues are deep and penetrating.
Working with this wool was reminiscent of a night spent by a cozy fire in a warm, woodsy home. I love that feeling! The wool strands are quite strong, yet soft and I found it a pleasure to work with. It's absolutely lovely to use and the projects turned out beautiful! I used my wooden hook and had no problem working the stitches through at all.
I may be a hippie at heart....
These ones were made with Noro Kureyon wool color #310.
The pattern was a free pattern from Two Little C's. I wanted a plain pattern that would bring out the beauty of this wool. I love my new, warm, unique looking fingerless gloves!
Then, -- when I wasn't looking, Morris the Mouse fell off my hook! He's a bit naughty in that way.
The wool color I used for Morris was Noro Kureyon #362.
Many thanks to Yarn Canada for introducing me to this beautiful wool!
Oh Morris, BEHAVE!
