View Full Version : FO - Flower Basket Tea Cozy

01-24-2008, 06:40 PM
I found this picture on my computer today. This is a tea cozy I made when I first learned to knit, back in 1979. I think it turned out well considering it was only my third FO ever. I still use this tea cozy today although some of the flowers have fallen off now. I guess I really should sew them back on...

Well I had taken the picture a few years ago when I started keeping a photo diary of all my FO's. Unfortunately most of those pictures were not digital so only a few have made it here or onto Ravelry. I have a whole photo brag book of knitted items, including my very first FO, a sweater for my son who was 2-1/2 at the time in 1979. I wish I had them all scanned so I could add them to Ravelry, but that costs money and right now I'd much rather spend the money on yarn!

So do I, somewhere. It's written out by hand on a scrap of paper that still has my old name from my first marriage (which dissolved in 1981) on it so that should tell you how old the pattern is. I think I knit it in 1979.
