Strawberry Tea Cosy

So I seem to be in the middle of loads of things at the moment, which makes having things to blog about limited! I’m almost done with my first cardigan, I’m half-way through the boyfriend shirt from the Great British Sewing Bee book and  I’m about to cut out my first By Hand London Elizalex dress, in the hopes that it will be a wearable muslin, ready to make another one by August 3rd for a friend’s wedding. I don’t quite know how I plan to fit all of this in!

So for today, I have an old make to share with you, which I made for one of my 2 best friends a couple of Christmases ago. She loves strawberries and tea, so I had the genius idea to make her a strawberry tea cosy! I used this free pattern from ravelry. This was the first time I ever knitted in the round (before I ever thought of knitting the socks from hell!) I was very proud of this fact, so most of the photos I have of the tea cosy demonstrate that I was knitting it in the round:

I love the little seeds and the top being all triangley! (And thanks to my lovely mummy for holding it for me to photograph!)

This is it finished, but the colour looks kind of washed out, weird. Also, I really should have taken a photo of it on a teapot, but at that point I wasn’t writing a blog, so didn’t think that might be useful in the future!
