tea is the answer

I stared at every pattern in the 'ultimate knitting book' - nothing, no inspiration whatsoever. And I have a cold, so it turned out simple cables were the answer.

Also good to know is that this took less than one ball of wool - excellent knitting economy, but now I have to use up the other three. So, Late Gift Part Two will be my first 'fetchings' from Knitty, I must be the last person to try these.

I can't think of a name for this teacosy, its not exactly original anyway. I might come with a name for the set, whatever it turns out to be.

What a perfect use for the Hollow Oak motif! I've always liked it, but it seems to busy for a sweater. I like the way it's the focal point of your tea cosy.

Thanks, I'll definately use it again, but I'll have to think of something where the bobbles won't be a pain - its hardly ideal for socks.
