Tea Time

Hi lovely ladies! I have a new project to start tomorrow. Just thought I would post before bedtime. I have been loving my tea lately, especially since I have my lovely Cath Kidston mug, posted on my last blog. Sooooo why not make a special tea cosy for my pot of tea, to have with my new mug.  I found this wonderful book by Vogue Knitting entitled FELTING on the go! So I will actually be knitting the cosy and then felting it. Want to see the design and book below.

Here's another view

And here is the tea pot  and Noro yarn for the Cosy!! I know it's pretty fancy yarn for a tea cosy but I think it will look fabulous in these colors and it felts really well.

Can't wait to start it tomorrow. I am so excited, I hope I will be able to sleep.

Oh, while I was in the baby cap making business. I decided to make one more to have on hand for any upcoming baby gift I may need. In a no gender soft yellow.

Had to show it off on my teddy!

That's all for now. Thank you so much for popping in to visit my nest with a lot of buttons on my next project!! Love hearing from you and cherish all you thoughts and comments.

My best to all of you and sleep well or good morning  xo Robin❤


  1. Can't wait to see your tea cozy! Love the little baby yellow hat with the rolled brim. Sweet.

  2. Looking foward to seeing how your tea cozy turns out. Nice choice of yarn.

  3. The tea cosy sounds such fun to make - lovely coloured wool to knit and then felting!! and then adding lots of buttons - wonderful! I look forward to seeing it. Love the teddy in the little yellow hat too - it suits him.
    Have a great week.

  7. Robin,
    I love the tea cozy and Noro felts so beautifully. It will be so fun to see it completed. Teddy looks very happy, he might just want to keep the hat!
    Have a great day,

  8. Just been catching up with your posts.The hat on the teddy is so cute! Thank you for your lovely comments on my bathroom.Have a lovely weekend! :0)

  9. A felted cozy! I love the one on the cover. I must try felting. Thanks for the sharing a little inspiration! Have a happy weekend. :)

  10. Looking forward to seeing the finshed tea cosy - the pattern and yarn look fab, and love the buttons all over it!
    The little baby hat is very sweet!
    The heart from Helens blog looks lovely in situ - lucky you and well done!

  11. You might just have to part with Teddy in the hat or make another...he's so cute with it on. Or, make two for baby, one being for their very own teddy.

    Can't wait to see the teapot cozy felted!
