Roses Roses and more.
The quirky tea cosie was instigated by Nat.
She knitted a couple for friends using recycled wool. My version uses leftovers from DD's knitting. The roses and leaves are knitted from spinning and dying experiments. The samples from early spinning are borderlester. A strong wool easily spun. It has a luster that dyes well.
Recent spinning was merino tops finer spun and softer result.Tweed leaves were an experiment in solar dying. I spun the wool after dying the tops so variations of color blended . I like the incidental accidents.
The pink roses were dye with conchonel .
Very deep purple was logwood.
Knitting this quirky tea cosie was just pure fun.
I didn't need it. We're coffee drinkers.
It gave me a bit of a challenge and I enjoyed the sculptural qualities of the project.
Thanks Nat for posting yours.
Dear Friends enjoy your week and all your endevors. Terry
