My normal tea pot is visiting Kentucky this month, along with the tea cozy I designed for it, and for Adagio's PersonaliTea Pot. That leaves me with just a small tea pot to use, and in the grand scheme of first world problems, it has been a miniature trial. As one who sips tea throughout the day, it's a bit of a challenge to only get two cups of tea out of one pot. And especially one pot that had a tea cozy which was a bit of a challenge to get on/off, being a bit undersized and gappy.
So, what's a knitter to do? Knit a tea cozy, of course! And since a friend of mine had sent me in quest of tea cozies on Ravelry, I already had a good idea which one I wanted to make. (Totally ignoring the pattern, mind you, which was in a magazine from several years ago.) So I rummaged in my stash, pulled my favorite needles out of a sweater sleeve (hibernating at the time, finished now), and cast on.
Behold, my tea cozy!
The current project is a stash-busting Honey Cowl, which is slated to remove 100 grams of Elsebeth Lavold's Silky Wool in Denim from my stash.
