Reading While Knitting

Nothing complicated; nothing too exciting, but yes, I do knit while I read. As well as during many other domestic activities.

Does it count as a sweater?

I've been practicing plying again, since I'm such a dutiful student. Also, I'm almost out of the black wool and I don't want to run out. So instead of playing with my long draw, I plied.

And then, what to do with those two bobbins of two-ply? Knit, of course. I still don't like the yarn; it's nothing like I'd buy. But it made a dandy tea cozy. Here it is keeping my Mariage Frères' "Bourbon" warm.

If I could count it as a sweater -- hey, it has ribbing and shaping -- instead of a hat, which it also resembles, I'd be a bit closer to my 12/12 goal. And I still have half a bobbin and a skein of this stuff left. Maybe I will make a hat for someone. Without spout and handle openings, though.

I love it! That's the cutest teapot ever. It looks like a snowball.

Stupid question: how do you get the top off?

or, leave the openings and give it to a child who likes pigtails.

It's perfect for that pot. Nice match up. And yes, I definitely think that is a SWEATER.

I'm so glad you're having fun farming the bees. Bees are a good fit with you, all busy and sweet and dedicated and productive.

I think your teapot looks very cosy in his 'sweater'.

Let's see, a sweater surrounds you and keeps you warm. That cozy is surrounding your teapot and keeping it warm. I call it a sweater!
