A Tea Cozy

Every time I see a tea cozy on a British movie or television show (or even some one's house) I think they are so cute! 

When I received Jane Brocket's knitting book for my birthday last year, this one of the first things I wanted to make.  Other projects were in the works or needed {I'm a one-at-a-time project kind of girl} so I just finished this recently.  The colored yarn pictured here is for the flowers that will go on top.  Not sure that I would have used those colors, but I'm using what I've got so...wild and colorful it is!  I've finished the flowers and I just need to attach them.

The book, The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment, has been here for years I believe.  Something Cameron must have bought at some point.  A friend mentioned it a long time ago and I decided it would be good to read during Lent.  I was right.  It is good.  Not like a novel that you can't put down of course, but good and thought provoking.
Edited to add....I almost forgot.  I didn't follow the pattern exactly.  I couldn't figure it out so I just did 2 x 2 ribbing.  It looks almost exactly the same.

  1. Hey! That tea cozy looks familiar! :). It's adorable! I think the colors all look very fun together.

    That is a great book. I just need to have one here so I can read it at least once a year. You're right, it is very convicting, in a wonderful way.

    1. Thanks Kelly! Yes, I realized this morning, that the first part of the book has been "cake", he's getting a little personal now!

  2. Ooh I need a tea cosy for the new teapot I just bought. Thanks for the pattern advice :) I can get that book from my library.
    Have a beautiful week.

    1. Thanks for coming by Elflyn. Yes, I got the book at my library first and then asked for it for my birthday. I want to make the other one in the book too, but solid, not striped. I'll need to get some help though!
