I borrowed two books from the library, which have patterns for projects that use two balls of wool (or less)...but wasn't really wowed by any of the patterns I saw...sigh
Recently I've become obsessed with tea pots and tea cosies and tea cups and saucers and....well....no longer all the goodies that go along with them (one day soon I can love that again). There is just something so wonderful about small sandwiches and little tarts and hot steaming tea and lovely company.
David and I have tea together every morning before he goes off to work...and I don't just meant boiling the kettle and plonking a tea bag in a mug...we have a proper pot of tea (complete with tea cosy) on the table, and our glass milk bottle. It is the part of our morning ritual that gets me ready for the day and gives us those few settled minutes in the morning...together...
Anyway....the combination of an overflow of yarn, the desire to keep busy knitting, and my fondness for tea cosies lead me to click click click click the evenings away over the last couple of days...producing two cute, but simple, knitted tea cosies.
Here in the UK there is a online craft network similar to etsy, called Folksy, which I am thinking about joining somewhere down the road. Maybe these two tea cosies will be the start of an empire??
