Tweed Teapot Cozy

A pot of tea goes wonderfully with an afternoon of knitting. This sleek and classic tea cozy will keep your favorite brew nice and warm. Compliment your Earl Gray with a cozy in conservative navy and gray, or cover your favorite herbal tincture with a more brightly colored rendition. The cozy shown is worked in two colors, though it can easily be worked in a single color. This pattern is now available in my Ravelry Store.

Pinwheel Bags

These uniquely constructed bags are remarkably simple to knit, yet the finished product looks remarkably complicated. The bottom is knit flat using short rows to create a flat, circular pinwheel. The body is then picked up and also knit flat. A hem provides a casing for the drawstring. In three useful sizes and a variety of simple patterns, these bags can tote small knitting projects, carry your gaming dice, or organize your tote bag. This pattern is now available in my Ravelry Store.
