So my mom has decided that, since I’m doing a bunch of knitting and all, she really wants me to knit her a tea cosy, for her teapot.
She likes the feel of a double-knit hotpad I just finished – and thinks the double layer would be good for keeping in warmth – but part of the fun of double-knit things is the reversible design, which you don’t really get with a tea cosy. I’m thinking maybe a thicker yarn done on smaller needles, or something, but … I don’t know.
She wants it to be machine washable – something that needs cold would probably be okay, but she’d be much happier with something she can just toss in. (And, er, that won’t come out felted the first time she does :teehee:)
So, uh, any suggestions for what would be good? (Either general types of yarn, material/weight/etc., or specific brands/styles.)
Thanks in advance :knitting:
