Sometimes you just have to make something that might seem ridiculous to most, but is actually fun to make and very, very practical.
When my friend asked me whether I could make her a tea cosy for a specific tea pot, I was very happy to oblige! I searched on Ravelry to find the right pattern, and got started. I was able to use a fair bit of leftover yarn that I had in my stash and was even able to stick to the green theme my friend requested.
The way the pattern is designed, it gives the tea cosy a real insulating quality. And it looks pretty chic at the same time!
A quick knit, and a pretty clever pattern too!
