This is the first tea cosy I've knit since I was in school, and that certainly wasn't yesterday!
I mentioned to a friend that I was knitting this and she said she would love one - so Karen - this is yours!
Because you pull the strands of wool across the back, it gives a extra layer for insulation and keeps the tea nice and hot in the pot!
I took a photo of
all my unfinished knitting projects last week, to shame myself into finishing them! It did the trick!
I also finished off this little baby cardigan which I started ages ago as a gift for my friend's daughter who was pregnant. The baby is now five months old and that's it just finished! Oh, I am so ashamed! Its only eight inches across, so its for a tiny baby.
There must be four white buttons the same in this lot!
I don't really have any excuses, but I think that its because I hate sewing up that when I'm near the end of a project I kind of put the inevitable off …
So, in order to be really good and show you the finished items, I got to work this weekend and finished off the cosy and cardi!
Great, I hear you say, so now all you have to get on with is the little Aran knit?
Well ……………… I was so chuffed with how the tea cosy turned out ………. that I started another one!
I know, but these colours just called out to me!
