My first attempt!
I am very pleased with the tea cosy (which works a treat) and very pleased with myself.
Thanks for posting the pattern.

I have been looking for this tea cosy to knit for a friend as she liked mine that I brought from England. Can you please tell me what yarn you used as it doesn't say in the pattern. Thank you

I use oddments of yarn from my stash, but double knitting is o.k. Don't use something too thick or too thin and you will be o.k.
It would have been my 42nd wedding anniversary on the same day as yours(if I have stayed married to my first hubby) Congratulations

Wow! I was married at 3:00 p.m. on that day. It had been raining right up until 2.45 p.m. and then the sun came out. It was in London (England)

It was my eldest son's idea. He took the name Stinky Pete for an e-mail address and thought we should all be stinky whatevers. Of course, he gave up the name, but I was stuck with it! No one else in the family joined in either! I don't mind, I always think it stands for Stinky Chrysanthemum, rather than the other variety of mom! Also it's easy to remember....
