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).
By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish.
I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob.
Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
