I surprised a friend with this. She was thrilled, especially as I had knit it myself.
Here it is:
This is where the pattern came from - a very old booklet of patterns for children to knit.
My sisters and I used it when we were little.
Wow! A blast from the past. Really nice.
Oh my! That's one well-used pattern! Too bad more children aren't taught to knit - I learned in school at age 5!
Wonderful! I'm in the process of creating one, too. Am creating a knitted "canvas" to decorate with crewel work tree, grass, a few flowers.
I remember that pattern. I used to use it a great deal. Now people seem to just throw a teabag in a cup of hot water and say they’ve made tea. So many teapots are just collecting dust. Thanks for the memory.
So they use tea pots in Ireland? Great should be more of it.
Lucky Friend! Love your Tea cozy brings back memories from school days.
Love seeing an old pattern!
Lovely gift! Those old books are a treasure!
The book & the memories are both precious. The cozy bag is also. No wonder your friend loved it.
