Not so sure about this one. This is something either my grandma would have taught me to knit back in the 60's or a school project made at primary school.
I'm a tea bag in the cup kind of person, someone my mother would frown upon. I keep her in the lounge while I make the tea, it's better for the heart and soul if I don't reveal the secrets of my tea making.
Jo on the other hand has asked for a teapot for Christmas and a teapot she has got complete with this nice little tea cosy to keep the tea warm.
If she doesn't like it, I'll sew the sides right up and wear it as a hat - minus the ribbon!
