Tea cosy knitalong

The Tilly Trout podcast group started a tea cosy knitalong on Monday. I bought and wound the yarn Monday but didn’t get a chance to cast on until Saturday. Getting used to managing stranded knitting again has taken some time but this morning I feel like I am back in the groove of things. I chose this pattern because it has steeks in it, which I have never done but have been itching to learn. Also, I did my first Vikkel braid and I love the look of that technique. I will probably pick up some simpler knitting for football watching this afternoon. The thing about color work knitting is that you want to keep going to see that pattern develop!

    Thank you for finding me. Your blog will give me inspirations to work on my own lace (tatting, bobbin lace).
