I've been working on this tea cosy for over a year. By that I really mean... I finished the plain green part of the tea cosy and then never got round to knitting all of the flowers and leaves to go on top. So as part of my 'finish all WIP's' new years resolution, I got my self motivated and got knitting!
I was inspired by Alice's spring explosion tea cosy over at Crochet with Raymond, you can see her patterns on Ravelry here.
I crocheted the large lilac rose and the red layered rose using my book Crochet Bouquet and the rest of the knitted swirly roses were made from one of my Christmas presents Really wild tea cosies.
I'm so pleased with it and so glad I finally got round to finishing it. It looks so fun and colourful and looks really pretty on my table so that I get to look at it all day long!
It's all made with Stylecraft yarn that I had left over from other projects, so a really good project to do to use up old scraps that you have lying around.
Rose has started doing a new thing today. She keeps pretending to have gotten herself stuck around the house in places like under chairs, next to the sofa, next to the table and then makes this fake whiny noise until one of us comes to her rescue! I purposefully don't go over to help her (obviously checking that she is Actually stuck!) and I even caught her peering round to see if I was looking! These cheeky nearly-one year olds! haha
Right, I'm off to decide what to get working on next!
I hope everyone's had a lovely Thursday.
