Notes

Christmas knitting in progress. Making it for my cricket-mad brother to fit a vintage Woods Ware two-cup brown teapot.

Finished at midnight on Christmas Eve! I made the ‘body’ of the cosie smaller by 3 pattern repeats to fit the teapot. This meant that the sleeves were proportionately a bit big, but I rolled them up which looked fine. I got a bit confused by the decreases for the v neck, but this was as much due to my sleep-deprived knitting as to the pattern instructions.

The yarn is great, considering the bargain price.
