Toast Tea Cosy

Toast Tea Cosy is knitted in a beautiful 8 ply beige angora/wool mix.  She’s based on a pattern from the book Tea Cosies 2. She was relatively easy to knit using a simple cable stitch but you must admit her simple lines are just beautiful.  All finished with a lovely velvet ribbon.

Toast was a 60th birthday present for a friend.

Little Black Dress Tea Cosy

IMG_0064Little Black Dress is a classy tea cosy for a very classy lady. She’s knitted in a beautiful 8 ply wool, using moss stitch predominantly. She’s based on a pattern from the book Tea Cosies 2  but I have made her a bit plainer and I hope more stylish by omitting the ribbon and knitted flower (the knitted flower just didn’t look right). Don’t you just love her pearls!

Little Black Dress was a birthday present for a very stylish friend. Here she is in her new home

Flower Garden Tea Cosy

Flower Garden Tea Cosy is a pretty cosy just made for a small 2 cup tea pot.  She is knitted using 2 strands of 8 ply wool for the body, and embroidered afterwards.  The body is knitted from the pattern on Imagejustjen’s knits&stitches blog http://justjen-knitsandstitches.blogspot.com.au/2011/04/flower-garden-tea-cosy.html, however I’ve added a flower knitted (clematis) from the book 100 flowers to knit and crochet.

Flower Garden was a birthday present for a work colleague.
