Last week I saw a pattern for a teapot cozy that I could not resist. I decided to whip one up for Oldest Daughter, to have it waiting for her when she returns home. I happened to have some yarn in a color she loves, and after scrounging up a pair of needles that would work I cast on.
Last time Youngest Daughter was home I gave her my impressive collection of Addi circular needles. I have been knitting so little, she has been knitting so much, it seemed like the right thing to do. I did keep a few sizes, the ones I am most likely to use for socks and scarves, but not the one I needed for the cozy.
I also have a collection of vintage bakelite needles and found a pair that would work for the cozy.
After a few rows I broke a needle, not a little needle, a size 6. Whoops, maybe these things are more pretty than useful? I found another size 6 and kept going. Broke that one too. The cabling was just too much for it. So that project is waiting until I can get to the yarn shop to pick up a pair of sturdy, metal needles.
While waiting, I cast on Husband's second sock. More Opal yarn that is knitting up just great. I have another skein of Opal in the basket ready to go and a good amount of yarn has entered the house recently. That post and photos tomorrow.
