Really Red Teapot Cosy

(Boy did I have to tweak this photo a lot to get the colour right!)

Pattern: Aran Teapot Sweater from Yarn #6
Yarn: Woolmart Wools Red Heart 8ply Crepe (bought in New Zealand)
Needes: 3.5 and 3.75 mm circs

My teapot isn’t very attractive, but it doesn’t drip. So a teacosy is the best way to improve the pot. I’ve been using a green one to match my old kitchen, but it doesn’t suit the kitchen in this house. We’ve been buying lots of kitchenware in red and I’ve been meaning to knit up a new tea cosy to match.

The pattern was more complex than I expected – mainly because the cables, while easy on their own, tended to twist on different rows to each other so it took a lot of chart following to keep track of them. I think this is the first time I’ve knit bobbles. They were… bobbly. Nothing to get excited about.

I was also going to knit a matching coffee plunger cosy, but the beau broke it. Still, if he replaces it I do have plenty of this yarn left over.
