For me the tea towel is a motivator to keep on knitting my work in progresses. As I've mentioned in a previous post I'm about a third of the way through knitting Kate's Catkin design. It's a challenging knit for me becaue it entails both cables and working in the round. Subsequently I took a break from Catkin to knit a few quicker projects that pass the EastEnders test *. Currently I'm knitting a purple Debbie Bliss cushion cover for my new sofa, a project that uses variations of knit and purl rows to create a clean, calming aesthetic.
For now my Kate Davies tea towel will remain pristine, untouched by fairy liquid or last night's dishes. It's a covetable reminder for me to up my knitting ante and carry on making the designs that I so desire to wear.
* A project passes the EastEnders test if I can knit it at the same time as watching EastEnders and not go wrong.
