BumbleKnit....that's me!

my Knitted tea cozy to fit my 6 cup Brown Betty

Five years ago, my youngest sister, forever named "Knitty Sister", lamented to me that she didnt have a passion in her life, like I did with my quilting.  So, of course, I tried to bring her over to the Quilty Side, but to no avail... she was just not interested in quilting.  So, I said to her, "Remember, when you were younger( 20 years previous), you used to knit Lopi sweaters?"  Oh yes, she we signed up for a class at a local yarn shop. I tagged along, for support.  I had very little interest in knitting at the time...Next thing you know, she is totally inspired and knitting like a crazy person. She is a natural knitting genius. She can knit standing on her head! Meanwhile, poor old me....five years later....many projects...I still cant knit.  I find it very difficult.  I dont really know why I persist.  I must love it! 

So....I joined my Knitty Sister's knitting group recently. The tea cozy in the photo is what they were all working on when I joined just before Christmas.  I finished mine today. Made with Noro Silk Garden. It's not near perfect but I made it and I love it.    I am going to take a quilt to work on next time we meet and maybe I can get a few of them to come over to the Quilty Side! 


  1. It looks perfect from here! You must have photographed the " good" side. Ha! Just kidding, it looks great!

  2. That picture at the top of your page is beautiful. Do you live near there? It is nice to have a passion.

  3. I think you did a great job on the tea cozy. I wonder how many you can convince to come over to quilting.

  4. It looks great! I'm all thumbs when it comes to knitting, but I keep trying. There may be some hope now that I've switched to bamboo needles, but only time will tell. I bet you will bring a few gals over to the quilty side when they see the lovely quilts you make!

  5. I think it looks great on your teapot and just think how nice and hot that tea will now be . Great idea to try to convince a few knitters to come on over to the quilty side ;-)


Thanks for stopping by. I love to hear from you and I really appreciate that you have taken the time to leave a comment.
