Our tea cosies are beginning to look a little sorry for themselves,
so I decided to knit a new one using one of my favourite yarns - Rowan Felted Tweed DK.
I have chosen to knit said tea cosy using 3 colours,
but my goodness, this tea cosy is taking a loooong while to come together and the
fundamental problem is this....
As with us all, life is quite busy and so I most often knit when I sit down to have a cup of tea.
Now I am a great lover of loose tea, nothing fancy mind you, just plain old loose PG Tips Tea
(and no royalties received for giving PG Tips a little plug)
and so my tea always comes from the teapot!
And therein lies the problem
I am making the pattern up as I go along and so when it comes to making sure the cosy fits,
the teapot is always full of hot tea just at that
very moment when I want to try the cosy out for size.
Not the best time to try a woolly jumper on a teapot!
As there is no way I can forfeit my cup of tea - such a sacrifice -
I've decided I'll just have to resort to a teabag in a mug for a while just so that I
can this tea cosy finished.
Oh, if only all life's problems were so easily sorted by resorting to the use of a tea bag!
