Join In 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

Here are some designs that made us smile.
