The "Kimbles Cosy"

Hi there, I am loving this "blogging from the field" lark!  Mind you it does take aaaaggees to load everything up and I do have to persuade Mr K to let me have the wifi time but it IS fun! 

I was going to save this Ta Dah moment for the Tea Cosy I have made, but I am soooo surprised, and pleased  at how well it has turned out,... just out of my little old head - it materialised, I just COULDN'T wait to show you all.

I made two rectangles of this nice ribby pattern,

Sewed up the sides, leaving enough room for the handle and spout,

Then I gathered up the top and tied it in a knot

Sewed the ends in of course!

What could I do to finish it off?  I know

Loads of "picots"  and leaves later

Tah Dah!!!

It's already in use!

No more "chilly Tea"!!

Speak soon xx


  1. Kimbles - its the best made in the field tea cozy I've ever seen. Love the cheery colors. Wonderful job!

  2. It's so cute! Love the picot flower on top. That just makes the whole thing come together. Love it.

  3. That is just the cutest with the flower on top. Great work. :)

  4. I love your tea cosy! I would like to make one too. I started a pattern but it is taking a lot of yarn and I don't have enough to finish it. Thanks for sharing your "pattern". It looks easier than the one I was doing. I'm blogging from the field too...so I know what you are going through. Luckily this RV park has excellent WiFi.

  5. That's a super tea cozy.

  6. Lovely tea cozy! Great work!

  7. You have made it look so easy. My teapot is in desperate need of a cosy to keep it warm - thanks

  8. Oh my gosh! Your tea cozy is so cute! I especially love the topper! What a wonderful project!

  9. A very inspiring field trip, were you in the Brownies, ha ha? Love it.

    No we dont usually use them, but so tempted. Well I hope you are back home today, because the weather here has been dreadful. Asbolutely pouring. I thought of you. Hoping you weren't still there!
