Tea Cosy

I do drink LOTS of tea but have always used the 'one cup' teabags thrown into the mug, boiling water and the tiniest splash of milk thinking that I couldn't be doing with 'stewed/lukewarm' tea from a pot for my second (or third ) cup.
Rob & Jen bought me a huge selection of speciality tea bags for Christmas from the Whittards shop that they discovered on their recent move to Cheltenham. To do them justice I had to go an buy a pretty teapot and I have been amazed at how hot it keeps just by covering the pot with a cloth between cups  
So.....straight to Ravelry to find 19 pages of free tea cosy patterns and I am currently knitting this little charmer which fits in perfectly with our cricketing lifestyle

This one will be next because I did happen to buy more than one teapot because they wetre such pretty colours

The cables on this one were all done as owls - I don't know how many people noticed
