I thought Medusa would be a good tea cosy for Halloween because she is a scary character. But while I have been researching her more, I think maybe she’s just a great character tea cosy that people will love on lots of different levels.
What a year the planet has had! So many floods and wild fires and some of the hottest temperatures have been recorded this year. Watching the news has been like one long disaster movie. With the COP 26 UN Climate Change Conference 2021 only weeks away, I have been inspired to design a Climate Change tea cosy.
I have been inspired by Zimmer frames. I broke my ankle last year and to be honest I was a little bit horrified when they gave me a Zimmer frame to walk with. But over time I grew attached to little Zimmie and named him. One thing I will say for little Zimmie, he tones your biceps up!
With the summer in full swing, I'm feeling all nautical. Hot sunny days make me long for the seaside and my mind turns to the oceans. I thought a submarine tea cosy would be really cute and would curb my maritime knitting itch.
