Quick Fix

A long time ago, I got a teapot. It has an Oriental feel to it and I like it a lot, however the handle left much to be desired. It is just two wooden bits held to the wire handle attached to the pot itself by some plastic… something, and it has been falling apart for years now. Every time, I re-roll the plastic around the wood and metal, but it’s holding its shape less and less and tonight I finally had enough.

I tore the plastic off and set about crocheting the wood and metal together with some leftover yarn. It’s difficult to see because it’s black, but hey, it works. I just hope it’ll hold together better than the plastic did.

It’ll do.
