I was having a hell of a time finding a simple pattern for a tea cosy that I liked. This seemed to be my best bet. I made it up as I went along. The result is a very cosy cosy (did you like that? You know, the adjective and noun usage? As if my posts aren't difficult enough to comprehend...)
I did contemplate this one but it somehow reminded me of a tagine. I also wasn't really interested in the bells and whistles.
Do you know it only took me two days to make? Sort of an upside down buttonhole bag. The felting went quickly this time, the eggplant shrunk much quicker than the apple. Very mindless knitting indeed. You know how sometimes you need that? I was also thinking this would be a great teacher gift. I'm kinda running out of time though.
Graduation for DN2 is on Thursday. She has a mass in the morning and then the "Clap Out". This is when the whole school comes out of their classrooms and claps and waves "goodbye" to all the grade eights. DN2 just may get emotional. She has had such a wonderful experience at this school and has participated in so many events, I just know she may get a wee bit blubbery. Then at 3:00 she has her hair and nail appointments, then the 6:00 award ceremony and dinner.
And one week after that both DN1 and DN2 leave the same day. DN1 to Ireland and DN2 to Cape Cod.
Speaking of blubbering...
