I've done something I never thought I would do--I've knitted a tea cozy. Not, it's true, really. I was chatting with my sister on MSN Messenger (fantastic if you live across an ocean) and she was making fun of me for wanting to knit a mug cozy. Ok, I thought, I'll keep looking. Then I went and found a tea cozy pattern, and got straight to work.
I found a free pattern (of course!) and I used the yarn that came in my loom kit from Cost Co. http://makeityourown.wordpress.com/free-patterns/ (you have to scroll down to find the pattern). While my husband hates the colours, I LOVE THEM! Here is what the first side looked like:
I wasn't sure at this point if it would even fit, but I carried on anyway. I have to say it was a fast and easy pattern, but there were way too many ends to weave in. I hate that part. When it was finished however, I thought it was worth it.
I'm a little too pleased that my tea pot now has its very own sweater.
