xtina’s complusions to obsessively knit

Finally!-I’m back June 14, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — iamknit @ 11:49 am

I’m a horrible blogger-I know. Three months without any posts is unacceptable.

I’ve been working in a lot of projects but I haven’t been taking pictures (until today).

For Lara’s birthday, this past Monday, I made her the tea cozy from Last Minute Knitted Gifts.

I originally intended to make it with a single skein of teal Ultra Alpaca but I ran out of yarn, frogged it and had to start again. Here’s the good thing: I used some yarn I already had (YAY! stash busting) and this yarn is superwash. I ended up having to use twice the amount of yarn, because I double-stranded, but I think the end result is better; it’s a much tighter gauge and I think it will do a better job of insulation.
Here’s some of the top detailing:

I bought the teapot from The Tealeaf in Waltham and I put a gift certificate to the store inside. The store is really cute and not only can you buy tea there but it’s also a tea room.

I’ve been working on more but in the interest of conserving content for future posts, I’ll leave you here.

More to come.

    Don’t worry, I’ve been a horrible blogger lately, not just in not posting but my posts as of late have been truly boring. haha
