nanna delux



i made this little tea cosy for my love for his birthday, from a pattern in really wild tea cosies by loani prior. he's been complaining for so long that we didn't have one that i just had to ... what grown man complains about the lack of a teacosy anyway?!

it's a simple pattern to follow, being mainly various sized granny squares in single colours. i used jo sharp silkroad dk tweed yarn in magnolia, peppercorn and treasure colourways and classic dk wool in teal and navy colourways (incidentally, when i went to double check the colour names, i've just noticed that they're both on sale on the jo sharp knit website).

i added some little ties at the top instead of stitching it together as the pattern suggests. our teapot seemed to be a little shorter and fatter than specified and i was worried that i wouldn't be able to squoosh it in when full of boiling hot tea.




i'm playing along with everyone at my creative space.
