Knitted Tea Cosies

LGC tea cosy nd mug warmerIssue 58 of Let’s Get Crafting is on sale now and contains one of my designs for a knitted tea cosy. The feedback on twitter and facebook has been absolutely lovely. I am never sure why tea cosies remain so popular, perhaps it’s the opportunity to make something small, quirky and fun that is useful too?

Whatever the reason, I’m delighted that my little cardigan tea cosy has made some of you smile and thank you everyone for the lovely comments.

homeKnits coverAlso on sale shortly is a new bookazine collection from Aceville publications which is full of gorgeous patterns collected from titles including Let’s Get Crafting. I’m sure it would make an ideal gift. Just looking at the cover I’ve already spotted pieces from a couple of my favourite designers and I love that it contains knitting and crochet designs – ideal for those of us who are “multi stitchual”!!  If you look carefully down the left hand side of the cover photo, you’ll see my slip stitch knitted tea cosy, this was very popular at knit group and surprised many knitters who thought slip stitch would be difficult to master. Do look out for it in the shops.

Finally, I couldn’t write a post about tea cosies without a mention for my lovely fellow designer and friend Emma Varnam, she really is the “Queen of the Cosy”, the one she made for me is a treasured possession, but if you want to knit an Emma Varnam original, hop over to her website for some great patterns and a peek at some of the lovely cosies she designed for Tea Cozies 4!
