It’s a New KAL

100_3892 (2)

Some may think that tea cozies are so old fashioned and granny-like but they really are very useful and effective (especially this past week of Arctic Blast, here in the NorthEast). The Tuesday Knitsters have embarked on a new knit-along. Some, among us, wish to learn fair isle and steeking, so what better project than a tea cozy! It’s a small project, doesn’t have to fit anyone and will be forgiving of little blurps (the tea doesn’t care). We are each working out our own design. Here’s mine, so far. I’m using the fair isle bit from the book “The Art of Fair Isle Knitting” by Ann Feitelson; page 113. Using up some very old shetland wool from the stash (that light color in the photo is complete with bug chomps throughout), I cast on 144 stitches on a size US1 needle….then anything goes. I won’t be writing out the pattern. That’s part of the fun! Stay tuned.

This Afternoon’s Bible Verse:

“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” Philippians 4:8
