cosy on the pot with flowers

Posted on: January 22, 2007

First of all, I would like to thank you all for your positive comments on my new blog. I am still finding my way around Wordpress, and find that at times it will not load properly and at other times seems to have a mind of its own. However, I will persevere, now that I have made the commitment to change blogs! 

Here is my tea cosy! Isn’t it cute? My mother in law was suitably thrilled with it, ensuring she will be receiving further goods. She tends to behave as if I am creating something supernatural when I knit. I tried to tell her it was really a couple of rectangles with some i-cord, she wouldn’t hear of it! I must say, I am really pleased with this.

Especially for Katt, here is a picture of my Elspiral Socks, which are so comfy.

 The yarn Katt dyes is really smooshy and soft – I cast on a purple and green sock with the other skein I bought from her, and have finished one sock. These are plain, from my Patons book, as they were intended for the sister in law, but upon consultation with mother in law I have decided pastels would be more fitting, so that is another pair on the go!Finally, I have included a picture of the pair of Fon Sox that I knitted some time ago. They are expertly modelled by the Tiny Madam, who demanded socks and then wanted them to have no toes so she could wear them with her Fons (thongs or flip flops!). Very cute.

The Tea Cosy is adorable. The fon sox are lovely and look great on Tiny Madam. Katt’s wool is very pretty.

Wonderful creations!! The new blog looks great. One question…is Cosy on the Pot with Flowers a play on Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds? Or is that just coming from listening to too much Beatles?

That cosy is inspiring. I’m going to have to whip out the yarn I have for mine and just Do It.

oooooooh now you REALLY made me wish I kept that Elvira!!! BUGGER! They look very dark and moody!

They look gorgeous knitted up! Glad you like it (will that be more purchases at a later date? lol)…Cant wait to see the Water Lily ones!

The tea cosy is really cute! And I adore the FON socks!! lol


I think the cosy was inspired by Strawberry Fiedls!! I love the derivation of the Fon Socks!!! Very sweet. Lovely Elspirals too!! I have 2 balls of Katt’s wool on my desk here!! Never thought you thought I was boring, but I reckon I am at times!!!
Definitely encourage the idea that you are supernaturally gifted!!! Yep, you can be in the new Heroes show: special skill?? Knitting!!!

Oh, now, that tea cosy is too, too cute!

You’ve really been cranking out some nice work and the new blog looks great! I lack the puter’ skill to dress up my blog. Maybe one day I’ll get adventurous and do something hinky to my template ;-0
