Hat Fail = Tea-Cozy Win.

This week I tried to crochet a hat. I saw a pattern on Ravelry for a lovely diamond patterned hat. Perfect for using up some hand spun yarn I had kicking around in my yarn stash.

Sadly I ran out of yarn half way through.  I've had the yarn so long I couldn't remember what the ply was, so the hat is also too small.  Hat fail.

I was showing the failure of a hat to my sister, when she pointed out that the demi-hat was about the same size as a small teapot.  Just like the one I've been putting a big tea-cozy on to keep warm, whenever she visits.  

After a quick unravel and a few pattern adjustments, (and a little bit of swearing,) I had a new tea-cozy. 

I even had enough yarn left over to make a pom pom.  Tea-cozy win.
