Knitting and London life. Not necessarily in that order.

Killer tea cosy
Takes about two hours to complete; needs about 100g of something chunky plus a bit extra for the pom pom, depending on how big you want it; in my opinion, the bigger the better! I knit this up on 12mm needles because they were the biggest I had to hand. Pom poms are best made with a kit - forget what you learned at school about two bits of cardboard with a hole cut in the middle. You'll never get your 100g of Rowan Biggy through the hole! The Curse hates the new cosy, he says that it looks like the monster out of some crazy 50s sci fi film: Attack of the Killer Tea Cosies. He could have a point, but I love it all the same.
