'When it's spring again, I'll bring again tulips from Amsterdam'...
But in the meantime, how about one of these very spring-like Tulip Tea Cosies... Tulips are such a classical and recognisable flower I couldn't resist making a cosy featuring them. These grow beneath a cheery, pom pom sun and allowed me to indulge my passion for lime green and knit a 2 x 2 rib of grass. The cosy, grass aside, is knitted from small oddments, here in Patons Fab DK, but other Double Knitting yarns can be used if tension is checked. The one size 5 page pattern knits up quickly from simple instructions and is a fun make.

I wouldn't say I forget everything else when I'm designing... but I do drink a lot of cold coffee! I'm an obsessive knitter who began writing patterns whenever one I bought proved disappointing or when I couldn't find quite what I wanted My patterns are designed to be as easy as possible to make and as straightforward as possible to make up. They're designed to be fun!
