A whole tea cozy

The second half didn't take nearly as long to knit as the first!!! I'd 'got into' the tension issues by then.

I took this to my voluntary job (Silver Surfers) last week and gave it to Pete as he was wanting a tea cozy. He was tickled pink by it. 

The 'top knot' is simply around fifteen chains long (crocheted, of course) and a double crochet running back along the strip. It needed the top knot to hide the finishing off at the top.

I like it! I seldom make a pot of tea. I'm mainly a coffee drinker, so when I do have a cup of tea, it's usually just a cup.

I love these cozies. My nan used to knit them and every household in our family had one.

It just makes me want to burst into song:
I'm a little teapot
Short and stout.
Here is my handle,
Here is my spout.
When I get all steamed up
I just shout
So TIP me over
And pour me out!

That tea cozy is beautiful! I love tea, too, and I brew it in one of my teapots.
