Now I do enjoy a good cup of tea, and yes we do occasionally use the Teapot - but I do not own a Tea Cosy. Nor did I ever have a desire to knit a Tea Cosy.
All this changed when a family member requested a Tea Cosy for her impending MIL.
MIL knew exactly what she wanted, - all the gorgeous, innovative and creative tea cosy's on Madeit and Etsy just did not fit her requirements. Darker pink and a cable pattern!!
A pattern was purchased, I bought the wool, and away I went.
A few little false starts to begin with, and I had the pattern repeat sorted, quietly chanting in my mind, I left the kids and their school mates to make their own entertainment! -- gently supervised of course!
