Earth Stripe Wrap

Today was about unpacking boxes. Ms. UPS brought in 4 first thing this morning. Then Mr. Canpar brought in a big box. We also received a shipment of boxes that we use for mail orders. The store is in a bit of chaos tonight.

Rockshelter Sock arrived and looks amazing. The colours look good online but wait until you see them in person.
This is 86 Gifting and 99 Bequeathed Treasure. Beth is going to combine them for a scarf.

A box arrived from Rowan with Felted Tweed and Kidsilk Haze.
A multitude of distinct tones are blended, combined, striped, and fully united in the extraordinary Earth Stripe Wrap. Designed by internationally renowned textile artist Kaffe Fassett, it was first released by Rowan in 2007. A decade later, we’re still in awe of the masterful use of color—all hues aligning to create one outstanding vision.

Fourteen skeins in ten different shades of Rowan Kidsilk Haze knit up into this generous, fringed wrap. Over the years, several of the original Kidsilk Haze colors have been discontinued (sigh!). However, the good people at Rowan have found just the right substitutes! If you made it before, you may find yourself wanting to make it again. 

Two different colors of Kidsilk Haze are held together in multiple combinations throughout, creating a lofty DK-weight fabric. And the super kid mohair/silk combination has that warm glow we’ve always loved. A truly timeless piece.

The pattern is a free download on Ravelry.

We are well stocked in Kidsilk Haze right now. Don't forget - I love to play with colours if you want to come up with a different combination.

The finished shawl is stunning. People will stop you as you are walking down the street - it is that beautiful.

Kim knit the Earth Stripe Wrap and loved every minute of the knitting. It is so much fun to see how the colours are going to work together.

That leaves a few more boxes to tell you about. I'm going to save that for tomorrow. Now I'm going to sit down and write a newsletter. We've moved from Constant Contact to Mail Chimp. Hopefully this means that everyone will receive the newsletters.
