Two FO's

Isn't it a lovely feeling to finish off a couple of projects and being able to ponder on what to do next ? I've just finished this teacosy which I made for one of the CWA ladies for her small pot.

It looks a bit strange on a pile of masking tape rolls but my teapot would be too big for this one. The pattern was from Crochetroo and as you can see it is a whole lot of popcorn stitches. I've always steered clear of this stitch but must say, they're very easy and I quite enjoyed making this cosy.

While surfing the net last night I came across a brimmed beanie pattern and decided to whip one up for one of our charity projects. I used two strands of 8ply but if I was going to make it again, I'd probably try for something thicker as this is just a wee bit snug.

I was going to leave you with a recipe tonight but instead, you might find this more interesting .........

A Woman's Poem
He didn't like the casserole
And he didn't like my cake,
He said my biscuits were too hard
Not like his mother used to make.
I didn't perk the coffee right
He didn't like the stew,
I didn't mend his socks
The way his mother used to do.
I pondered for an answer
I was looking for a clue.
So I turned around and smacked him one
Like his mother used to do.

Goodnight Madison
