If you go down to the woods today…..


You may just bump into a mad woman with a tea pot!

Yes, you guessed it.  In the search for some good natural lighting to photograph the new teapot cover I took it down the woods with me.  The yarn is Araucania Pomaire Multy which I purchased from Ally Pally.  There was only one skein left in this colour way so it needed a small project.  I’ve got plenty of the yarn left though so I think it might grow some bits at the top.  Maybe a cord to pull it off with or something like that.  I swear it has more green in it in real life though.


I did feel a little peculiar wandering round with a Tesco’s carrier bag with a tea pot in it – complete with tea cosy. 

Since I normally only walk the dogs together and Jake has been injured, Pebbles has not been getting to go out as much as she’s used to.  So I decided to take her with me as well.  She thought this was fabulous and obviously wanted to help with the photos…

So not only did I end up being mad woman with tea pot, I was mad woman with tea pot and dog!  Naturally since I didn’t have a nice shot of my new hat (which I made to help keep my head warm at work), I needed to take one of that as well.  The yarn is Scrumptious by Fyberspates in DK which I used double to get a nice thickness.  The pattern is called the Weekender by Woolly Wormhead.

Pebbles down the wood 7There was of course much mooching and running about by Pebbles and I just couldn’t resist taking some photos of her as well….

However as we walked back to the car I couldn’t help remembering a thread on Ravelry from a while back.  The person who started the thread was complaining about project photos including things such as cats when all she wanted to see was the knitting.  What on earth people would therefore make of a teapot down the woods with a dog I dread to think….
