It's like this. Our local bookshop Page and Blackmore is hosting a Really Wild Tea Cosy competition. So I carded, spun and began to knit a tea cosy. It was my first time carding, first time completing spinning to create passable skeins, and my first ever knitting project.
Well, the tea cosy got bigger and bigger, and it was knitting about twice as wide as it was supposed to be, so I had to come up with Plan B, which I'm delivering to the bookshop right about now.
This thing, though, is made of delicious merino, so I'm either going to wear it as a collar/cowl, or close the top end and make it into a wee hat.
