I hit a wall (which happens a lot when I try to make a bunch of the same thing) which slowed me down a bit. But the latest three are done, along with their matching hot-pads/trivety-things. In fact, the first teapot & cozy are on their way to their recipient, whom we will be meeting in Japan, but lives in the US these days. I thought it would be kinder to send their gifts before they leave for Japan so they won't have to drag them around Japan all summer.
Then I received an order of sale wool from Halcyon & the wall just melted :) I had ordered some Noro Silk Garden on sale in 3 different colourways. Actually, I thought I was ordering the sport weight wool, but it turned out to be the worsted... what to do? The cozies I've crocheted so far are in DK weight... should I try to change the pattern I made for the others...?
That's exactly what I did, basically by picking up a (larger) hook- I used a G/6/4.25mm- and winging it. I ripped a bit but the adaptation came quickly, & being in e heavier weight yarn, the cozy worked-up even faster. yay! The cosy & trivet took just under 1 skein of the yarn (~100 m). Plus, I got to use new, gorgeous yarn almost right out of the box!!
