The falling light of a Northern sun...


I'm done. It was a race against time today to finish the thing before sundown so that I could actually photograph it.

Here we are:

(Bessie graciously consented to model. Also, she's the only teapot I have.)

Noro Kureyon, color 147, less than two skeins (but you will need a full two if you want to match stripes. Size 7 dpns, size 8 circular (16 inch).

Also, the koolass (koolhaas)

Malabrigo Worsted, Emerald colorway, considerably less than one skein, good GOD I'm pale. Wow. And size 7 or 8 dpns (I can't remember. Probably 8s)

Next time I'm going to add a LOT more ribbing to the bottom edge.


  1. Love the hat! The color is really lovely.

  2. I like the tea cosy pattern you've used but I can't seem to find any I like. Where did you find yours?

  3. Duh, the patterns are as follows:

    1. Tea Cozy: Kureyon Kozy from Knitty. I'd link to it, but for some reason I can't put links into my comment. Weird.

    2. Koolhaas Hat from Interweave Knits (various issues). You can buy the pattern from their online store.

  4. Your tea cosy looks so cool, I especially love how the little cow head pokes out of one end! So cute.
    I love the pattern on the hat too, it looks like it must have been hard to knit it that way.
    Oh, how I wish I could actually crochet or knit something...

  5. See? Now, I see why they call it a Kool Ass hat!! It's pretty damned kool!!!

  6. Your koolhass is gorgeous! I love that blue on you.

    The tea cosy is also very nice! I'm amused that you have a cow tea pot. It would go well with my elephant tea pot.:)

  7. You're not really that pale. Seriously, it's something about the light and the flash and ... stuff.
