A Tea Party for Hannah

After felting. All done!

colorway: Natural and Glastnost Gold
yarn: Pattons SWS
colorway: Natural Denim

Notice the Ravenclaw colors? That is my House. My daughter Hannah (2 years old) has claimed the tea cup and saucer. She asked me what I was knitting and when I told her she started clapping her hands and jumping up and down saying, "Mama knitt'n a tea parteee for meeee!" How could I refuse?

This was very fun and a fast knit. I haven't been inspired by my knitting in a while and this was just what I needed. I was so eager to finish and I really enjoyed this little project.
