More knitting

The weather has kept me indoors for quite a while now. To keep myself busy with something other than housework, I've been finishing knitting projects started some time ago.

This Posh Tea-cosy was started early last year and then abandoned. It's knitted with lots of 'ends' of Posh sock skeins that were left over from the Posh Sock Challenge, 2012.

The pattern is a vintage one. It incorporates a lining of a contrasting colour (red, just visible at the bottom.) It's quite a simple pattern and can be adapted to different sizes of teapot by using heavier/lighter yarn and different sized needles.
