I write these post so far in advance that occasionally something earth shaking occurs that needs to be reported. My friend, Marcella, found this fabulous website which will afford me an entire days reading - following all the links including the "Free Taster" workshops under the links -> magazines -> Workshops on the web. Click on taster. Fabulous Marcella and thanks so much for finding this amazing website/ group.
I frequently find myself making tea and forgetting to pour the steeped pot into a thermos. In an attempt to remedy this I started throwing a towel over the pot and tucking it in around the base to hold the heat in.
This worked so well I thought of making a cozy. Basically I am too lazy to knit and I don't like the look of crochet. While readying my guestroom for my brother Eric's arrival, I spotted some old white hand towels I used to use in the bathroom.
Facing another cold pot of tea, I ran upstairs, gabbed a towel, threw it over the pot, added a few pin and cut off the excess. I added a strip of Velcro to act as a closure and Voila!
