Blue Frenzy

I’ve admitted that I’m ill.  Nothing nasty, but enough to keep me quiet and productively knitting for a few days.  I threw caution to the wind and whipped out a tea cozy.  To heck with sombre plans!  That pot needed a sweater.  And I needed to giggle silently in the back of my brain.  I mean, a tea pot cozy?  Silliness.

May the tea remain hot!

Adapted the Jacob’s Ladder cable from “Stitchionary” to be narrower for the mug cozy. The lace rib on the pot is the Cloverleaf  Eyelet  Cable from “Sensational Knitted Socks”.

Winter needs two things: levity and warmth. Mission accomplished.

It was supposed to turn out more stocking cap and less pixie, but Barbara Walker’s Knitting “From the Top Down” merely said that a stocking cap was ‘worked like an endless sock’ and to space the increaces out. No help there, but the point was to make a warm and silly hat and it worked.

    Blue is my favorite color! I really want to learn to knit, but dh told me that I must first finish all the other projects that I have going before starting a new hobby. 😦

    Fun factor = high! Just what the doctor ordered!

    ‘Round these parts, exercise continues, sparked by that triathlon video link you posted a week or two ago. Dance Dance Revolution, taking the stairs in a parking garage, walking to and from blood donation, and most recently, hooping. That last one especially, fun factor: high! And I’m not sure if it’s real or just a difference between scales in two places, but I stepped onto that instrument of doom while at my mom’s yesterday and was 8 lbs down from weight (on the scale at the hospital where I’m participating in a study), taken 10 days ago. Hmm.

    Hope you feel better soon.

    I love the tea cozy. I’ll have to show it to my eleven year old daughter. She’s been whipping up some funky lime and mango coloured mug cozy’s for Dad’s Christmas present. Maybe she’ll be inspired for Mom 😉

    The blue on the tea cozy is stunning. The moment I saw it I new I wanted it for my first sweater. I’d love to know what yarn/colour it is. Thanks,
