Tea cosy


Hi guys,

Sorry for been quiet but I have had a try at knitting and this is what I have attempted to make:


Yes a tea cosy…….and it is a bight orange………well it was the only wool I had and I wanted to start straight away…..it is a double knit. I was suppose to use 5.5mm needle but I only had 5mm. I have the flowers to crochet but I could not wait to show you guys………….It as turned out great in my eyes…..


The pattern is from the Simply knitting Special Subscriber's Edition by a lady called Kirstie McLeod. I love it!!!! I think I need to do more but will have to visit the local wool shop……………do I sneak out of the house to do this…….??????? I need a plan.


I have to show you some of the lovely presents I got today for my Birthday. I received Labels thirteen and wonky squares nesties from Dad and Jennifer. The below from Smudge and Tikka:


From the hubby I am getting a spend in a craft shop……..hhmmmmmmmmm I wonder if his budget is the same amount as the one I am thinking of????????


I received these from a colleague from work……I love Hyacinths and she got me these for my new office as I leave my job next week for other adventure. I have been spoilt rotten this year.

Please leave comments on my attempt at a tea cosy.

Luv Jane XX
