Meet Tacky the Teapot
A lazy damp Sunday at home gave me plenty of time to create a little sweater for my "new" thrift store teapot. I can't say for sure what this yarn is....maybe Jiffy Thick and Quick or something like that. It was knitted on 8mm needles up one side and down the other, with a little shaping to narrow it over the lid, and I sewed up the sides leaving holes for the spout and handle. The teapot lid is very loose so this will work well to keep the lid on while I'm pouring, as well as keep my tea hotter for a little longer.
And these are some very tiny potatoes that we pulled out of our garden today. They were the rogue plants that appeared from potatoes that we missed last year. Cooked for 10 minutes with a sprig of mint and covered in Earth Balance Buttery Spread, they were yummy.
