Snowed in yesterday. Woke up to find everything blanketed in snow. By late afternoon it was pretty much gone – the sun shone all day. And sunny again today – maybe spring really is here.
Anyway, only so much I could do with other stuff so had my first attempt at a cafetiere. I thought that after the teapot cosy this would be easier than winking but I didn’t find it so. Maybe because I approached the project thinking it was a rectangle with a closure and didn’t think about the handle … It works okay but it’s a bit long. Makes the cafetiere look a bit like a dalek in a pinny. Trouble is, it kicks out over the bottom handle like a bustle or a kick flare and looks a bit odd so shortening it will make it fit better. So, it’s nearly there but not quite but won’t take much to make it right so will post pics when it’s done.
Have fun! Hel
