I'm tearing up the year end, am I not? A staggering number of blog posts in the last few days, if I do say so. I have two cosies to share, first up the LTYC Cowl by Kelly Hechinger. This is a fabulously quick knit done in super-bulky yarn. The entire piece can easily be worked in an evening.
I worked it in Malabrigo Yarns Rasta in the brilliant true red colourway. It's got a very festive vibe to it, though if I were to make another I would go down a needle size, as it's a tad huge, and I don't have an overly large head. Did you know that many film stars have large heads? This is a well known fact - it makes for a more photogenic person, apparently. I suppose there's no future for me in films.
Here's someone with a biggish head, the tea cosy I knitted this past week. She's from the Sweet Old Lady pattern by Loly Fuertes.
I've made one of her patterns before, the nurse tea cosy, which I gifted to my Mum without ever blogging about it...hmmm....I wonder what else I never mention?
Anyhoo...here she is in all her big-headed glory (not my Mum, but the Old Lady). She's made mostly from scraps (the tea cosy!), with a hefty dose of Filatura Di Crosa Zara in black (like the angora pup mitts from the last post).
Can you see her wire-rimmed specs I crafted for her? Adorable.
Next up I'll post the Christmas gifts I've made this year, but first I'll let the recipients
see them first. In the mean time,
