FO: Tea Cosy
My eldest gave me a very pretty small teapot and I decided after a while that I should knit a cosy for it to keep it warm. I finished it off yesterday and it just about fits the teapot.

I'll post a photo when I get one taken.

It sounds lovely! So is it a wee bit too short or is it supposed to "about fit the teapot"? Would edging help make it a little larger?

And excuse my ignorance, but what's the purpose of a tea cosy anyway? Does it keep your tea warm?

I can't wait to see! Yes, Antares, it helps keep tea hot.

These tea cozies are so effective at keeping the tea hot that I knit a little aran sweater cozy for a friend's coffee pot. Works for coffee too! Looking forward to seeing your cozy.

We sometimes put two tea cosies on a pot of tea, especially if we brewed extra and want some for later.

Still anxious to see your Tea Cozy! :hug:

Fret not pets, your waiting time is at an end. Here is a picture of the tea cosy. It has been keeping the teapot - and my tea - nice and hot. The pattern calls for cotton yarn, but I just used some worsted from my stash.

Brilliant, I like the top part, no ties or tassels there! :yay:
