this cosy is a bit on the large side, but it is doing the trick of keeping my tea warm now. in this last photo
if you look close, the front is damp, i learned that the pot should always be undressed before filling. trying my hand at needle felting too, i made small toadstools on a scrap of wool and then appliqued it on the front of the cosy. it is fun, but i can see this is something i need to work on. so giving it another try, this time adding them directly to another baby cardigan. that was even more difficult to do. i definitely need practice. in the meantime my 'leah' is almost done. hoping to have it finished to show today, but i underestimated the time it takes to knit ribbing on a yoke using size one needles. it is s l o w knitting at best. reading mostly magazines and catalogs, i'm having too hard a time concentrating this week to keep to a book. we've just had my mamas memorial and i'm doing something experimental with a health issue. knitting is again helping me through.
the teapot cosy pattern can be found here, and the cardigan, here. lovely needlefelt toadstool inspiration, here. and redwood forest print, here. joining again with ginny (thank you) of small things for the weekly yarn along. :)
