Happy New Year everyone! I have been spring cleaning my house and when it was all tidy and my tables were clear, I felt motivated to get the tea things out instead of making tea in a mug in the kitchen like I normally do. And then I thought, what is a tea tray without a tea cosy? Here is one. I knitted it from the Poppy pattern in the Jan 2011 edition of Let's Knit magazine.
I thought long and hard about type of yarn, and eventually settled on acrylic because I want to be able to chuck my tea cosies in the washing machine when they get tea on them. This cosy is made from Hayfield Bonus DK, two strands held together, because I didn't have any aran-weight.
