I got word today that the tea cozy I knit for the friend who moved to Brighton fits and is in use! Success!
It goes well with tea:
Thanks to Paula for photographing this for me. I’m glad it’s getting some use! How cozy is your tea, exactly?
(I know tea cozies are kind of a cliche gift to give someone, along with ugly ties and bad art, but in this case, it was the perfect thing for a new, more British life. Next, I plan on gifting tea towels and maybe a hedgehog.)
By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish.
I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob.
Therefore, knitters = angry mob.

I love this tea cozy and have some wool to make one according to the recipe! Please tell me if using the yarn double means using two stands as you knit instead of one. I want to get it right. Thanks for your help. Like the blog btw. Sarah
I did use two strands at once! You could probably also use a bulky yarn and achieve the same effect. Good luck!
Nice tea cozy. Maybe when the weather turns colder, you could knit a matching hat!
She’s quite cosmopolitan (if I am one tenth as cool as she is, I feel I’m doing well).
Your friend has excellent taste in tea as well as tea cosies.
