Just finished the second sample last night!  The pattern is now available on Ravelry and will soon be available on Patternfish as well!

This all started last fall when I bought a new, bigger tea-pot.  This is a Le Creuset pot and has a larger, beautiful tea leave strainer.  The new pot needed a new cozy.  Which I knit.  Then the cozy was so well received it turned into a class.  The class needed an alternative sample.  Which I started and had for the class.

This last weekend I finally finished the alternative sample.  So the pattern could now be published!

Sometimes things just take longer than expected.

I am now on a pattern writing mission.  I have several finished samples with patterns half written – now to finish them.  There are three patterns for the Buffalo Wool Co. alone!  I also have several (many), projects started and unfinished.  The ideas are languishing.  Now I need to work on them as well!  Lets’ see how many I finish before I get sidetracked yet again!

Gorgeous Colinton Mohair!

Currently I am finishing off the little collar for the Buffalo Wool Co. – Opps that means 4 patterns for them!  I am also working a small triangular shawl with spun mohair from Colinton Australia, a new yarn that we have at Mad About Ewe.

This yarn is spun mohair, not brushed, and has a luscious sheen and heavy drape.  I am loving working with it so far and of course I have added a few beads as well.  The body is being knit with a variegated hand-dye and the edging will be knit with a semi solid hand-dye.

Happy Knitting
