Tea Cozy

I had a busy weekend. I ended up working but was able to take a project along. It's an easy peasy pattern simply called Striped Tea Cozy.

My mom is a real tea drinker and I thought she might like this. I purchased this swirly button from Joann Fabrics. The swirls match the stripes in the cozy. Neat huh.

Only after completing the project did I notice that my letters were skinnier than the designer's photo. I did it as charted but I noticed that her letters are a column thicker. It's okay though, it looks decent. As you can see, I have not blocked this yet.

This is an okay pattern, I don't think I will make another but this project came in handy this weekend and I'm happy to send my Mom another gift.

Pattern: Striped Tea Cozy - Here is the pattern.

Yarn: Patons Classic Wool

Needles: US 7

Positives: Quick and Easy

Negatives: The cozy came out really, really large.

This may be my last small project for a while. I have to make more shawls and there is that sweater I started a while ago. Oh dear. Anyway...

Have a good one !
