Voilà, a tea cosy! It is a bit large for the pot.
It has a pompom, which I made with my neighbour's fancy-pants pompom-maker. It does keep the strands from going all over the place in the all-important "tie together" step of the process, so that is good. The fact that the pompom is a bit small and sparse is my fault; next time I will use more yarn!
Nice texture! Squishy and thick. I'd be happier if it was closer to the right size, but I do like it a lot.
