A Tea Cosy Knit-Along

We found this delightful knitted Tea-cosy site on Twitter and couldn’t resist sharing it with you!

We’re spoiled with our tea making facilities in The People’s Friend offices, yet we’re sure you’ll agree, nothing beats a cup of tea made in a tea-pot! While we’re big tea drinkers, we make our tea with a bag and a cup.

At home we love to use teapots and if anything was going to encourage us to bring in a pot for the office, it’d be these cute tea-cosy designs!  Tea Cosy Folk was started through a love of tea and knitting, and each design shows that.  Just a brief look through their designs is enough to have you reaching to flick the kettle on.

A cosy for everyone

Tea cosy folk have made it really hard to choose a favourite, but here are some that made us smile;


The Queen

Choir Boy

Cocker Spaniel

Super cute!
