Tea cup patterns



I love the pattern inside this teacup. It looks like a fairisle chart to me. In answer to Cookey knits questions about the tissue holders, I give you this tea cup. You need about as much yarn as will fill this rummage sale tea cup. Also, US size #1 needles are equivaelnt to Metric 2.25's. (thanks Susie). These little tissue covers just fit over the litte purse size tissue packages. Just use some leftover sock yarn. And yes, I've started my third.

I'm wondering when You come to read Irisheyes amongst other blogs. The times of day that I post, vary greatly. I notice when I make my blog rounds, that most bloggers post by midday. My schedule is very loose and irregular day to day, therefore I read blogs at all times. Is there a certain time of day you generally read the blogs? Do you avoid the computer on weekends?



I'll talk to you in the comments. :)

I work from home, and Bloglines is kind of my "coffee break," so I check it at random times. Or when I'm letting the dogs out for the last time at night. No set pattern, but more than once a day, usually.

Beautiful teacup!

Oh how I love Blue Willow. My mom loves it too - I've got some really nice pieces but not as many as my mom has. :)

I read your blog because you are always interesting and fun and cheerful. :) You always make me smile and you are a wonderful friend. And I read blogs whenever I can. :) Not as much on the weekend because I'm spending time with Pea!

I love ya too. I was trying to 'splain this knitblog friendship thing to someone last night; she was amazed that cyberkin relationships begin. Thats what IM calling you:
cyberkin. :)

That teacup is gorgeous. It totally looks like a chart.

I read blogs anytime I'm home. I don't have the most regular schedule. Sometimes I can't comment all at once so I have to open the page to comment later.

I love your teacup. But in fact, I love all teacups. Something about them reminds me of my great-grandmother and oh how I miss her.

I read blogs whenever I get the chance. I've been thinking about blocking out the same hour each day for it though. Who knows if that plan will come together though.

Love the teacup. My schedule is so erratic that I usually post all different times of the day. I try to post at least once a week. My posts are usually briedf--only very occasionally lengthy. I usually read blogs mid morning or late at night. Yours is now on my daily read list.

Jolynn said...

Well... Since you asked... I usually read and post in the evenings, because that is when I have free time.

Anne said...

I read whenever I get a chance but find that I post in either the early morning or after the kiddos have gone to bed. Love the teacup ... that inspires me to see if I can find a couple of my favorites among my grandmothers' old china. Some of the colors are amazing.

I tend to read in the morning because it's the best time for me. My children like to use the computer after school (we only have one, so we take turns), and the afternoon I am out with my husband.

Thank you for answering my question.

Kathy said...

Wow, it seems like we all relish our blogtime and try to fit it in between other family members using the computers and the day's demands.
It is a real break for me to read your blogs whenever i get to.

I would love to see others favorite tea cups on their blogs sometime.

I usually blog in the evening, but I read blogs all through the day. I am on the phone with my work all the time and I read blogs while I'm on hold.

Beautiful cup, my mom would faint over it - she loves all the blue and white china stuff =)

I post and read blogs in a very erratic manner. Here and there, depending on what I have to blog about and what sort of mood I'm in. I think lots of people go off the computer on the weekends and Fridays are a bit of a slow blog day. I seem to always post on a Friday and am on the computer on the weekends, so I'm opposite the majority, seemingly.

I post whenever and read whenever. I am a SAHM so time is my friend, er enemy. I'm never sure which! I use bloglines to catch up on new posts - which I generally do between 0500-0700 AM (because I'm crazy that way).

: )

Hege said...

That's a pretty tea cup!

I usually get a time by myself in the morning while the kids eat breakfast to check my bloglines...
I might pop in during the day, but take the tour and blog myself after the kids are in bed. - I can hear myself thinking then *lol*

And I started reading your blog after you commented in mine - I think ;)

Breien in Lansingerland said...

For me it usually differs. LOL! It is 10.05 in the morning at the moment as I write this, but I have also visited your blog on other times. Just when the mood strikes...LOL!

Lynne said...

Hmmm...I am just catching up from weeks of NO blog reading, and it's refresshing. I must confess, I do alot of my blog reading while I"m at work. Or early in the morning.
