It’s time to make good on the promise I made in my Pay It Forward post. I pledged to created a hand knitted gift for the first three commenters on that blog post.
Gift number 1 is now ready and will soon be winging its way to California where I hope it will be joyfully received by Q of Curls and Q.
A careful survey of the Curls and Q blog revealed something very important about Q. She has a thing for tea.
- Unplanned Tea: Q visits the Aubrey Tea Room, drinks cream tea, wears a fancy hat, and picks up a single serve tea-pot/cup combo.
- Birthtea Party: Q celebrates her birthday with tea and scones, plus home-made lemon curd.
- Tea Spout Do-Dad: Q presented a free pattern for a knitted tea spout wrap to prevent that annoying dripping problem. What a fabulous use of random yarn scraps
I’d just found a very pretty Ribbed and Ruffled Tea Cozy pattern from Churchmouse Yarns and Teas. Perfect! The cozy below was knitted from 1 skein of Noro Kureyon.
No sooner had I decided to knit Q a cozy than she published the following blog post: Cozy up with a Cozy. Total tea cozy porn. I messaged her immediately to tell her about the scary coincidence. Been stalking my favorites list, Q?
I hope Q enjoys the cozy.
Also, thank you to Q for nominating me for a Reader Appreciation Award. I’ll be following up on it soon.
Next up in the trio of winners: Either anastasiawraight or collegeknitting. Time to blog stalk them and wait for inspiration to strike.
Q – It is so gorgeous! The colors are fabulous! I do have this Dr. Spock mind-meld thingie. 😎 Do the cats come with it? My favorite animal is cats!
I’ll have to ask them if they’d like to take a trip. 🙂 Stanley’s ok with cars if he has a lap to sit on. Orion associates vehicles with vets and would take more persuading
OMG- I COMPLETELY FORGOT TO DO MY PAY IT FORWARD POST. I am going to put that up right now!
[…] myself, have only sent two of the three gifts I intended to send. I still owe one to Ms. Anastasia Wright of For the Knit of […]
Q – Still loving the tea cozy! My teapot, Mrs. Rose, is so happy with it. She says they are her colors!
