Tomorrow my grandma is 90 yrs old, happy birthday Grandma.
Here is a phot of the tea cosy I made for her. She is the oly person I know who uses a teapot!
So use your imagination - I don't even own a teapot so imagine the photo in focus (might help!) and with handle and spout.
The pattern is from the latest issue of Simply Knitting magazine - one of the Uk's 2 hand knitting mags. The cosy is a 1 x 1 rib gathered together at the top with a ribbon tied in a bow and the flowers are crochet. All in Double Knit from my extensive (I think it's breeding *shock*) stash.
I really enjoyed the crochet - must do more of this and get over my crochet pattern phobia.
Next back to the row by row quilt, this months row is 'baskets' and Spooky has chosen really brigth fabric so that will be very jolly to do, looking forward to it, have some patterns picked out just need to get on with it!
