Have you seen this book?
The author doesn’t exaggerate – these tea cosies really are wild.
I decided to make one for my parents for Christmas which involved learning how to knit on circular needles. It isn’t hard once you get it – but thank goodness for Youtube demos! A nice lady showed me how to get started and then it was fine. It really is better than using four double needles.
I decided to go with a Christmas theme so I have knitted the cosy shown on the front cover but instead of pompoms I am going to decorate it to look like a Christmas tree – I hope.
This is what the lining and outside look like so far.
I’m thinking some red and white buttons, crocheted silver tinsel and a star for the top. Not sure how I’ll make the star but I still have a few days to work it out! Hopefully you will see the completed photo soon.
