I design and knit unique tea cosies. I really love designing exciting and unusual tea cosies, its great fun and people don’t mind having an over the top tea cosy. Plus they are a great talking point at tea time and make for brilliant knitting projects.

I have quite a following with regular customers who regularly buy my latest designs from my website TeaCosyFolk.co.uk

I have had a couple of patterns printed in the Simply Knitting Magazine, which is very exciting.
