Winding down the year 2015, I find myself with no less than twelve unfinished projects tucked into baskets awaiting attention. With some of these knits I've questioned why they were set aside in the first place but with others I've wondered if it might be time to unravel the project. Those are the ones that have been around for a few years that I don't have the nerve to unravel. A list has been publicly displayed for my Ravelry friends and I've sought accountability --- these UFOs will be finished in the upcoming months or frogged!
Last week I finished the Sheep Carousel, a "jolly tea cosy featuring a carousel of Shetland sheep" - another Kate Davies design. Some of the techniques used in this cosy were stranded color work, steeks, vikkel braids and corrugated ribbing. It was a great little project and is displayed on my Brown Betty Teapot.
Have you ever heard of a Brown Betty?
