What to do with the knitted cosy?

23 oktober 2012


The initial idea actually wasn’t bad: knit two sides of a tea cosy and then stitch them together with yarn in a contrasting color. So simple and contemporary!

Except that it wasn’t.

It was sloppy and stupid and ugly, and after a few minutes of staring at it I removed the red yarn again and put the cosy together with safety pins, leaving it on the table so that I could think about an alternative.

There it has been for three days now, and I’m no closer to a solution. Sew the two halves together with grey yarn? Red yarn? With a crocheted rim? Or a big pompom? I’ve even contemplated, in a moment of delusion, on leaving the safety pins in, as they don’t look that bad once you get used to them…


Something has to be done. But what?
