a little something sort of silly

I'm not much of a tea drinker. Coffee is definitely more my thing. But I do love tea in the winter, and it got cold surprisingly fast this year. (I keep hoping it's going to warm up soon and, when I tell people this, they look at me funny because it's December and we live in Maine.) I bought myself a teapot last year and found myself wanting to knit a teapot cosy. I don't know where this want came from. But I wanted a quick and easy project to work on this weekend and so I found some scrap yarn in my stash and cast on.

The pattern is Teapot Cosy by Alexis Layton. The pattern is free, very well written, and start to finish the entire project took me under 2 hours.

I'm in love with my little teapot sweater. While I don't know that it will actually keep my tea warmer longer, it will at least keep my hands from getting burned when I hold the teapot. And just looking at it makes me feel a bit warmer.


  1. Years ago, my sister and I collected teapots. I lost most of them during a move and have been fighting the urge to start over. I think I will start with this cozy. Love the colors you used.

  2. Thank you! The yarn is from Sheep Shop Yarn Company and I bought it because I fell in love with the colors. (That was 2 years ago and I think they've since discontinued selling yarn.) Sorry you lost most of your teapot collection.


I love reading your comments. Thank you!
