Tea Cosies

Today the weather radar in our parts looked like this...
And this was before it got really bad
So it was a perfect day for getting on top of things indoors.  But, instead of rushing about like a madwoman, cooking, and cleaning, and trying to find the bedroom floor in the kids rooms, I parked myself in front of the fire and knitted this...
My very first tea cosy
The knitting pattern is called 'mistake rib'.  I made a mistake with my mistake rib and it turned out as normal rib for a few rows. So the normal rib was a mistake and my mistake rib wasn't.

Ah ha ha ha ha, cough, sigh.

Why yes, I had been working on that one all day.

2 people love me:

LOL That's why you're the writer; you have a way with words. And knitting needles evidently.
