This is the tea cosy I knitted for my friend A for her birthday. It's actually the very first tea cosy I made out of all of them and I love its little bobbles. It's made from Jo Sharp wool; and from memory. I saw an example very like this one in a Jo Sharp knitting book and made this cosy pretty much from what I could remember of it. On a side note here, something that really bugs me is how yarn manufacturers bring out these veeeery expensive pattern books for sale which usually, often, contain about fifteen or twenty patterns. How ridiculous is that? You might only want to make one, or possibly two of the patterns in the book (how much knitting is the average person capable of, really), and you have to pay $50 for a whole bunch of patterns you're not even remotely interested in. It would be so much more sensible if the patterns could be available singly, on a pamphlet and you could then just purchase the ones you want. That's my opinion, anyway. What do others think?
Anyhow, getting back to this cosy; my friend A is a very classic and tasteful dresser and I've always thought of these subdued sophisticated shades as being her kind of colours.
