WOYWW 389, the Teapot is finally dressed

The tea pot is back and is only missing a button, and a few ends to be woven in. I do not call my self a Knitter, I just knit. The tea cosy was made up as I went along.  Sort of like a hat for a tea pot, with ribbing to keep it close, and gaps for the handle (with a little trap door to keep it closed) ...

... and a gap for the spout. But if you are wanting to keep the pot even warmer...

... there is a Wool Tea Warmer. Inspired by a couple of Deskers who should know who they are XD. This is the bit that really took some time, but I did learn to do a proper Judy's Magic Cast-On (only took me months and rewinding of several Craftsy Classes - 40 Ways to Cast On and Bind Off worked the best for me... and apparently there are even more ways).  The bottom is stuffed with 2 loosely wound balls of the yarn. And everything is properly blocked (soaked in water and then dried flat). Blocking has improved my knitting by 90%. I am a blocking convert.

Head over to Julia's for peek at more crafty spaces.
