While on holiday in New Zealand, I bought some BEAUTIFUL wool at Holland Road Yarn Company. It is Zealana Rimu. It is a deep blue with a smoke haze to it. I LOVE it. I started off doing a patterned beanie, but the haze meant that the pattern didn’t show up as much as I wanted. So I just did a plain beanie to make the wool the ‘hero’ – but I’m not certain I like it. I’m going to take it to work and ask a friend. I’m happy to frog it if she doesn’t think it’s good enough for this wool. I LOVE it and don’t want to waste it onea mediocre beanie! I have enough for a cowl as well, but I want to have the beanie nailed first.
