FO! I'm a little teapot [cozy].

Well, not really.  I do not consider myself short, but am possibly a bit stout.

Teapot cozies!  So deliciously grandmotherly.  I think mine is swish-o!  I made it to spruce up the office a bit.

When I was feeling down one day, I googled 'how can I be happy' (seriously, I'm not joking).  I read something that said surround yourself with bright colours!  Even though I'm feeling much better generally, I don't think it could hurt to have a bit more colour around :)
'scuse my enormous pile of junk in the background.
Doesn't it just make you want to drink copious amounts of rainbow tea?

Ravelled here.

I think I could have made it a bit longer, my teapot's bum is showing.  Oh well, you shouldn't be looking at its bum in the first place. 

The pattern is by Alice from Crochet with Raymond.  She makes such lovely things.  I have already made one of her granny cowls, and I am nearly finished a  mandala to match my happy teapot.
