Thank you again for your well wishes for my sister. She has much improved and should be home in the next day or so. It was such a relief to know the fix was uncomplicated and she should have a quick recovery. The news certainly lifted a weight off our families collective shoulders. As we knitters know, knitting can be a big help when one is going through a crisis. Knitting something simple and useful was a boon and balm for my peace of mind.
There has only been a hint of fall in the air. The temperatures are mild (and lovely), there is one little spot on the mountain that shows the leaves are starting to turn, and school children are once again dotting the landscape. In an effort to ready everything in my house for the impending cold temperatures, and to have some knitting fun, I started this cute little thing over the weekend.
This little cozy fits my new teapot, a two cupper, very nicely and any tea served should stay warm and drinkable until the pot is empty. The Kuryeon (#233) was purchased at Blazing Needles open house on Saturday (it's the only yarn I bought) and the cozy was started early Sunday morning. Through the hospital visits and lunch with sisters I watched as the cozy grew quickly and by days end it was finished.
The cozy shows off nicely the beauty of Noro's colorways and the embellishments on top make this fun and fanciful project. The cozy fits a small, short and stout teapot perfectly and uses up every bit of yarn. By keeping to the shorter measurements in the instructions, you'll have just the right amount of yarn...any bigger pot, you'll need two skeins. You could, of course, easily modify the cozy to fit any size teapot.
Any time you'd like to drop by for an afternoon of knitting, a cup or two of tea and a sweet treat, I'll be ready! Please call first so I can have the tea hot and ready to go. Tea, friends, knitting and chat...all great things to aid peace of mind.
