Looks like a teacosy to me too! I knit one at school when I was 10. I remember the teacher handed out the wool and I got red and white. I didn’t like the colours. Wish I had it now though as those are the colours for Liverpool FC which my OH supports. My mum must have thrown it out!!!! And now you’re knitting Everton colours!!!
Haha - Trisha and LL - spot on. A pleated teacosy. One of my OH's customers complained their teacosy was old and tired, so I thought I'd make them a new one! I've never made one before but it was fun to do.
I didn't say tea cosy VW, because I didn't think you were the tea cosy type somehow, anyway, it is still very cute, and I am sure the recipient loves it.
Haha - I do sneak in a few cups of tea around the G and T
I don't even own a teapot but this lovely lady kept my OH in tea and cake all week. Hers was old and tired. Nick told her I knit and the rest they say is history - they are quite addictive to make though - using up scraps of wool and a few people now want one lol
Don't own a teapot? I make tea in a teapot day, to us it doesn't taste the same when it's made in a cup/mug. I always use a cosy, we have a charity shop that always has knitted cosies in. We used to have a tea room where every pot had It's own knitted cosy. VW, I'm not surprised that you are getting requests to knit more. It's lovely.
