This was the fourth 2012 Christmas present, code name “Osprey.” I made two of them for my sister Cindy, code name Cobra, to match her Christmas list kitchen colors. The first one I made with white “dots” in a heavier weight yarn than the pot. The second I tried with brown “dots” in a lighter weight yarn than the pot. I prefer making the dots out of the heavier weight. I think it gives more stability to the pot and more visibility to the dots.
These two little pots looked very sad all empty so I got two bags of Hersey Kisses: a white chocolate candy cane for the white dotted pot and milk chocolate with almonds in the brown dotted pot. After that they looked complete but I’m still surprised I was able to fit a whole bag of them in each pot!
