WIP Wednesday – Handspun Tea Jenny Cowl


It is Wednesday again!  Where is the time going?  It seems like the days are quite literally flying by, but not to worry, I have a work-in-progress to share 😀

Yesterday I posted a picture of my new yarn bowl and my most recently finished handspun, a wool sampler in five wonderful natural shades of Finnish wool.   Lollyknits commented on yesterday’s post suggesting Tea Jenny by Kate Davies would be a great match for this yarn and I couldn’t agree more.

Since I do have a lot of hats but still want to knit this pattern, I’ve chosen to make it as a super cozy cowl instead.  I’ve cast on the same number of stitches as the body of the hat with 4.0mm needles and worked the brim chart.  With only five colors, instead of the seven the pattern calls for, I’ve had to play around a wee bit with the colors but I think that it is working well. The body of the cowl is worked on 4.5mm needles.

Even though I only started on this project this morning, I am ALMOST finished.  I only have the i-cord trims left to knit and then a-blocking we will go!

What are you working on today?  Making cozy things for the cooler weather?  Do share!
