It’s done! Woo! My tea pot isn’t naked any more!
I finished up the top of the tea cozy last week, working it just like the top of a hat. This week I’ll start by working the spout opening the same way I would work the thumb on a mitten. I transferred the 12 reserved stitches (saved on my stitch holder/safety pin) to my dpns, then picked up and knit 4 stitches in the little cast on edge. I then worked a little 2×2 ribbed cuff around the spout and bound off. Easy!Then I sewed up the bottom of the handle hole (I still need a better name for that), so now it fits snugly on my tea pot without me having to safety-pin it in place.But, you know what… It looks a little… sad? Like it’s missing something.
Something like a pompom.
So I made a nice, tight 2″ pompom with bits of all 7 colors and sewed it on top. Perfect! It’s all finished and ready to go out on its maiden tea voyage! I can’t wait.
And, next week, I’ll write up the pattern in a nice finished form and you can make yourself a tea cozy!
(And, don’t forget! I’m giving away a copy of Knit Picks’ new Garter Ridge collection on Friday!)
It looks great! The pom pom definitely adds a finishing touch to it!
Love it! The pom-pom is the icing on the cake!
