A grey and autumn-like day today... a good excuse to put to use my new knitted grey tea cosy. Now I wish I could say I have knit it myself, but that is unfortunately not the case. I bought the cosy from an elderly lady (who had made it herself) at the weekly market in Bantry, Ireland, this summer.
But the thing is I would dearly love to learn to knit one like this. I think it would make for lovely Christmas pressies for tea drinking friends, don´t you? Unfortunately I am not an accomplished knitter, and (even thought I thought I could) am not sure I can "read" the pattern just by studying this particular cosy.
So here is a question to you lovely blog readers. Do any of you know how to knit a cosy like this one? Or do you know where an instruction for making one can be found? It would be highly appreciated by this particular blogger (who has already started to think about the fast approaching holiday... have you?)
