Yarn & needles: Sugar ‘n’ Cream in white (90 m/58 g) and blue/cream variegated (15 m/10 g).
4 mm straights and 3.75 mm dpns
Dates: 24th – 27th Feb 2015
Only used 1 CC, instead of 2.
Worsted-weight cotton instead of DK simply because that’s what I had to hand.
Accidental modification of crossing the cables the opposite way. It’s now a design feature.
Another accidental mod of leaving off the stripes around the v-neck collar.
I’m going to be honest and say that it’s really difficult to get this on my teapot. I don’t know if it’s because of the yarn I used, but it’s really tricky. And it’s not easy to get the lid on, once the cosy is on the teapot.
However, it is super cute and I hope it will keep my tea warmer for longer!
Yarn: Krafty Koala BFL Nylon Sock Yarn in Midnight Tempest. Unknown yardage, probably used 60% of the skein.
Dates: 1st February 2009 (!!!!!!!) – Some time late 2013 to early 2014.
There may be some accidental modifications involving the cables, but we’re not talking about those.
These are very comfortable to wear and the cable on the back of the wrist is a really clever way of bringing the glove in without including any shaping.
Incorporated some of that conductive thread in the index finger of the right hand glove for operating of fancy schmancy touch-screen stuff. Ideal for paying for your tram ticket without having to take of your glove!
2paw – I owe you a very long email. Ditto April. And probably a few other people!
Thanks for the well-wishes. I spent the 7th of January in good company enjoying lovely coffee and cake and fondling many yarns and then spent the next day (my actual birthday) recovering! Not a bad start to the year.
Instead of doing individual FO/WIP posts for the stuff I’ve finished and have on the go I’ll just do a quick-and-dirty round up of some stuff now and some other things later in the month.
I also have a pair of finished wristwarmers, a finished shawl for me, a finished cardigan for my mum (only 3 days late), some things I made for a swap last year, plus a purge of UFOs and probably lots of other stuff I’ve forgotten about.
