For Margaret

Tea, for two (or 10 perhaps?)Finished Object number 2 is Exhibit a) on the left hand side of the picture. Here we see a classic shape which tapers nicely with the cut of the teapot. Exhibit b) on the right of the picture is a more modern take on the teacozy, but keeps the tea toasty warm none-the-less.

Spot the difference between the 2 pictures (and no, its not the fact that its 2 minutes later....)
Both the classic and the modern are both very capable of use with different teapots. Amazing fact eh!
I can see that you are bowled over by this knowledge.
A little bit of knowledge can be a dangerous thing you know, I'd better not go too much further (It IS Thursday after all, don't want to stress you too much before the bank holiday weekend!)
Here you can see how the stripes work with Exhibit a) and please try and ignore the piece

Of wool peaking out a bit at the spout. There is a reason for this, and it’s a valid one: I am trialing the tea cosy at home before giving it to my mum and I may need to tighten the gap here for her teapot, but I won’t know until I try, so just trying to cover all angles.


Pattern: My own, based very loosely on the 8 ball cosy from Stitch n Bitch Nation

Yarn: approx 70g of Wendy Naturelle pure new wool (ebay purchase) and 50g of Noro Kureyon

Time taken: Hard to tell, picked it up and put it down a few times.


Pattern: Kureyon Kozy

Yarn: Noro Kureyon, 1 skein

Time taken: Made this before Christmas so can’t remember
