Tea cosy close up

It has been a while since I’ve picked up my knitting needles. I found this simple tea cosy pattern here and really enjoyed making it. Moss stitch is lovely but quite unforgiving! Never one to concentrate entirely on the job in hand, I had to rip it back several times. (It is still less than perfect on close scrutiny).

Top of tea cosy

Our teapot has quite a wide top so it is stretched to fit but the ruched effect shown in the pattern works when the cosy is placed on a smaller teapot. Next time, instead of ribbon, I will sew a felted ball on top. Now enough of this idle talk…tea anyone?
