teacher's tremendous tea cosy!

Hi, Olivia here! I have been working on a tea cozy for a teacher at school. It has been very tricky as there was loads of cabling and it went a bit wrong on the first half but by the time I had finished it I had mastered cabling! It is made with the best rowan wool ever! I also learnt how to make a bobble which is very exciting! It feels great to have learnt something new. I have been busy making pom poms for the top of the tea cosy and they are so cool! Have just finished the third one and they are a great way of using leftover wool. They look brilliant popped on top! I really hope my teacher likes it. We bought a lovely Avoca button cup and a sweet milk and sugar jug with the same button print from my lovely local shop as a tiny something to go with it.
It would be great to know what you think our blog so please leave us a comment. Thanks!
