Tea Cosies ~ Part 1

Image

I’ve always loved the idea of tea poured from a tea pot. My collection of loose leaf tea is ever-expanding. Not only does the idea of sitting down to a pot of tea and a natter with a friend really appeal, but the more tea, the less wine, which can only be a good thing!

So, when the first of these books came out, it was right up my alley.

The Carmen Miranda (shown on the cover) is just gorgeous. But it was not to be.

…and then I looked at Rosie Posie. But alas, no. Knitting in the round, with five needles, was Difficult…but stay tuned for a later post, I do have a Lovely Knitting Mother-In-Law!

Secretly though, I was eyeing off this one. Licorice Allsorts.

And here he is, TA DAH! Isn’t he gorgeous? I had to buy a new, special, black tea pot for him.

He’s not exactly the same as the one in the book. I had to do a little creative blanket stitching because he kept toppling a little sideways.

And Moo thought he was lovely too…

… at least for a small while…
