I FINALLY got around to finishing up that tea set I've been working on since oh... late November. Many of you saw a preview in my December 1 post, "I Hate WIPS." Well, here it is in person... with all 19 pieces completed!

Yes friends, that's:
  • One tea pot with removable lid
  • Four cups
  • Four saucers
  • Creamer
  • Sugar bowl with removable lid
  • Sugar spoon
  • Dessert plate
  • Three petit fours
  • One pretty little mat to show everything off

Now, the question is, am I ever going to be able to make up a second set so that I can get the pattern down on paper?

I suppose that only time (which has not been ample around here lately) will tell. In the mean time, I have submitted the whole thing for the Vanna's Choice Knit and Crochet Competition. I am pretty excited about that and would be floored if I actually make it past the first round... again -- it's all a matter of that whole time thing.

But I promise not to let you all down -- you've been so patient! Now that the design process is over, the patterning part should go more quickly. So, maybe we'll see a pattern before spring?
