I finished the Sheep Carousel by Kate Davies earlier in the week but just got around to uploading my photos tonight.
Love the well written pattern. I want to include Kate’s vikkel braid in my next project. The only thing I wanted to know was what teapot Kate is using.
Love the Jamieson and Smith yarn. It is sticky enough in colorwork for longer floats between colors.
Love my fully clothed teapot.
With the crocheted reinforcements in place. My crochet skills are sorely lacking and I had to redo that part three times before I got it right.
Here I go!
Cutting the steek. There is a reason why steek rhymes with eek! But I’m not afraid of steeks any more.
The cut steek.
I was so proud of myself that I forgot to take any photos of the inside before I tacked the steek facings to the inside.
Here it is.
Would I knit another one? You bet! I have enough yarn left over for a second one in the reverse colors.
That is lovely! If only I had a teapot…
I love it!!! I also enjoyed and have been of the same opinion that steel rightly rhymes with eek!
I never heart the word steek. What is it?
That came out AWESOME! I don’t have a teapot like that but if that was a hat I would sooooo wear it. lol. Great Job!
Beautiful work! I’ve been afraid to steek, but you make it seem less scary… 🙂
Cutting into a knitted project is still scary. I seriously doubt my grandmother would have attempted such a thing. Not because she wasn’t capable but because it would mean the item couldn’t be undone and the yarn reused.
I don’t know if I’d be brave enough to make a sweater. I’d have to be absolutely positive it would fit and the recipient would love it.
You are amazing. I wish I liked tea so i could have one!!!
What about a coffee cup/mug cozy? Or fingerless mitts? There would be fewer repeats but still cute.
Nicely done! I’ve seen that on Kate’s blog, and wasn’t sure if I would be up to something that intricate!
Thanks for your comment.
Kate’s instructions are wonderful and there is enough yarn to make two so if the first one doesn’t work out, you can still make another one.
Steeking wasn’t as scary on this project as I didn’t have hours and hours of time invested as a sweater would.
