Since the weather (finally) has cooled off a bit around here, I was thinking my teapot needs a jacket or "cozy". I had started one from a project in a book some number of years ago, so I dug it out of the basket on the top of the bookcase where it had been collecting dust.
It's pretty funky-looking. It's knitted of wool in "short rows" for shaping, and then wet-felted.
It's too big for my teapot so I rolled up the hem. I decided I really didn't care for the colors. Too cold-looking for something that should be cozy.
So I overdyed it in golden yellow...
After dyeing, I felted it a bit more and it fits the circumference of the teapot better, but it's still too tall. I left the cuff edge out so it would show the unevenness of the edge of the felted fabric.
