Tea Cosy Sisters and Sunshine Award

I'm on a roll with knitting! After I finished my first cosy I immediately started another one. I do this to most things I make except quilts because I don't get many of them finished haha! This time I had a reason to knit the second one. It is a gift to Valentina. I was waiting until she received it before I blog about it. I'm glad Valentina really likes it. I hope it will brighten up your cuppa tea every time you use it Valentina.

Jane and I are still spending our lunch breaks knitting. We might have to find something else to do once Summer is here. Both Jane and I are knitting our third cosies at the moment. Jane is making them for Christmas presents and for my third I might use it for a Christmas givaway, I will see how it goes!
Jane's second cosy

This is Jane's second cosy. She used purple and blue for the flowers and the base was knitted in dark blue using ribs pattern. 
Here are the tea cosies sisters together before I posted it off to Valentina. It was the last time these two cosies would be together! Looking at them together I really like the yellow one. I'm glad Valentina has it though.   It suits her lovely and happy personality. 

I got the pattern for these from a book Really Wide Tea Cosies by Loani Prior. You can visit her blog and see more wide tea cosies that she has knitted. 


Woo hoo! I was given a Sunshine Award by Emily of Quiltdoodles. Emily is a newish blogger, but she is not a new quilter. You should see all her gorgeous quilts! Thanks Emily for my Sunshine Award, really appreciate it.  

Enjoy your week everyone! Can't believe how fast September has flown by.

The teapot sweaters are sooo much fun. I might have to knit one just to look at OR put in my order?
Wonderful sort of knitting.

Both together look like a flower shop. Now one is far away being admired and used by someone special. Nice gift.

Must check out the site again.

You clever thing, your tea cosies are adorable

Clarity said...

Dear Nat,

Good to be back - I adore your tea cozies, am quite simple so one day would love to find a store with a black and white flower design like yours (Chanel stark) or green (favourite) and white. Very lovely indeed and I think your friend must now remember you fondly with every cup, sigh :)

I really liked your Irish quilt too, it was simple and beautiful with the white bkg and liberty prints. Irish/English sounds fine, X.

Dot said...

Your tea cosies are gorgeous! How fun to have someone at work to knit with too.
