As a result of our snow day last Monday I started to make a cover for our Cafeteria as I frequently find my coffee is drinkable the instant I pour it out. I measured very carefully and decided I wanted the cozy to be tall enough to accomodate the pot with its plunger still up. So I made a cozy 14 inches tall by 9 1/2 inches wide, and lined it with batting and cream calico. I am delighted with the finished cozy and our coffee stayed much warmer this morning. I have also finished knitting a very small jumper for Ali's bear but I won't post a picture just yet as that would spoil the surprise, although she does know about it.
Yesterday a friend and I went to the Creative Stitches & Hobbycrafts show at The Brighton Centre. We had a lovely time as we found lots of lovely wool, both 4ply and DK. We treated ourselves to some lovely patterns as well as wool. My friend bought some beautiful 4ply wool in shades of purple and grey which she intends to make into a shawl or wrap. We also saw the Shaun's Pic-knit display which was amazing, every single item has been knitted especially for the display by knitters around the country. It certainly made us smile.
I hope you have a good week. Jane x
