The Super Secret project has been gifted and it is (drumroll, please)
A tea cosy! Yay!
Alas, I have no teapot, so I’m stuck with putting it over an incense burner and photographing it on the couch. It’s the Broken Rib Cozy, and I made up the colorwork myself. I’ve got all of the leftover yarn still, and I’m planning on making a scarf to send to the cozy’s owner.
I made the cozy for a lady at work who is awesome (and who writes for Surface magazine) and is leaving next week to move to England. I decided that no respectable English resident could be without a proper tea cozy, and since she drinks a lot of tea it was very appropriate indeed. I have also learned what it means to “wear a tea cozy as a hat” since this one is just about the right size for the head and has convenient ear holes (the hole for the spout and handle). I’ll have to mail the scarf to her later. They could make a very stylish matched set.
Next time I update the Super Secret, it’ll be the first one, which I’d really like to finish in time for the end of next month (but am not optimistic about finishing).
