Woolstok is here

Mr. Canada Post brought in two huge boxes from Blue Sky Fibers this morning. Woolstok is here. The patterns are in the next set of boxes but you can purchase them on Ravelry if you need to start right away :)
Pattern: Endless Wrap (purchase on Ravelry)
Wrap yourself in yards of cozy Woolstok. Fun to knit, fun to wear, the Endless Wrap is a long swath of lofty, textural knitted fabric. Panels of knit/purl and yarn over patterns make this a good next step project for a beginner knitter.

Pattern: Cromwell (purchased on Ravelry)
Cromwell is the new favorite sweater. With longer sleeves, a roomy neckline, 3x1 ribbing and a relaxed fit, it gives a modern look to the traditional raglan-sleeve pullover. Knit in one piece from the top down with springy worsted weight Woolstok. it’s a great advanced beginner piece.
Pattern: Trimont Snood (purchase on Ravelry)
The Trimont Snood can be worn three ways; as a cowl, a capelet or a hood. Knit in the round from the bottom up in lustrous Woolstok, with decreases providing a touch of shaping, so it’s wider at the shoulders and narrower at the top. The seed stitch panel adds visual interest

I didn't really want to knit with it :)

Here is the start of my Endless Wrap. 16 rows in. The pattern asks for 8mm needles but I knit a bit on the loose side so I'm using 7mm. It is a very long scarf so adjusting the length is no problem. Just stop whenever you want. And the pattern is very easy. 8 rows. The stitches used are - knit, purl, k2tog, yo, slip 1 knit 1 psso. That's it.

My colour is called Cast Iron and I love it.

Now I'm a bit obsessed.The yarn is very, very nice to knit with. It's time for The Amazing Race Canada and some more knitting.
