Since posting my Octopus Tea Cosy, I have gotten a few requests for similar tea cosies and little octopus toys. So I've decided to put off some of my fall knitting projects to make a few octopuses(?), octopi(?). I am planning to use the same Kambgarn sport / 5 ply yarn in Rosebloom and Glacier Green that I got in Iceland and used for my first Octopus Tea Cosy.
The first thing I like to do when starting a new knitting project is assemble my materials and pack my knitting bag. This way everything is in one place, and I can take my knitting on the go. It usually consists of the pattern, yarn, scissors, tapestry needle, pencil/pen, and needles.
Knitters - how do you prepare to start a new knitting project?
