On the needles: tea cosy

I had a request for a tea cosy and so last night I cast it on. The only criteria was the colour - blue and brown. A few solid hours of knitting (I'm still SO slow) and it's almost done. All that's left to do is to sew on the icing and decorate it with some buttons. Urgh, sewing up, my least favourite part of knitting.

I'm pretty pleased with the way it's turning out so far. Hopefully the finished product looks almost delicious enough to eat! Here's the link to the pattern. It hasn't used up much yarn at all so a good project for any leftovers.

Now I'm all inspired to make a new tea cosy for myself. Of course mine will have to have matching egg cosies :-)
