Good Morning! Today I bring you our kettle, and a little confession...
There was but one flaw; the lid gets pretty hot sitting above boiling water and that little handle on the lid was roasting! Rather tricky to lift it around the top handle when it's boiling hot and you want to put more water in the kettle for another cuppa!!!
The solution; knit a tiny handle cover and stitch it around said handle. Ah, all is well again in the world :-)
This kettle sits on the wood stove all day and all night in this house. If you sit it just on the hotplate it stays warm and takes only a minute or so to boil when you put in right on the hotplate (as in the pictures). The stove is another post in itself. Needless to say, now the weather has cooled, the fire in the stove is regularly stoked up and we're grateful for the warmth it gives the kitchen. You'll often find various members of the family standing in the open door of the oven!
Anyways, there's the story of our kettle and here's to a terrific Tuesday!
