Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

reversable cozy

Lo the reversible tea cozy - green side out.
Behold the cozy - rust side out.
This goes into the county fair. I took out mistakes to make it fair-worthy. And boy is this a toasty cozy!
I don't know how well this yarn will felt. I've hand-washed it in the bath-tub and it fulled and softened nicely. Still too scrachy to wear next to the skin, but better. On the needles right now is a rust cable knit version of the cozy duplicating the single stitch lattice. Then I'll turn out a sample swatch and run it through the washer and dryer. Woohoo!

    Ohhh, yeah, double knitting will keep it warm all right!

    Isn't it fun when your mind goes galloping off in Idea Land and it's all your hands can do to keep up?

    And you either wrote down what you did or created charts, yes? So you can put it up on Ravelry, yes? 'Cuz I'm thinking how these would be great in some of my not-so-soft handspun.

    You'll need to keep us informed when you win the blue.

    Okay, that's my favorite cozy so far. I love the green and rust together.
