Rosie Posy Tea Cosy

Rosie Posy Tea Cosy

I finished my Rosie Posy Tea Cosy...well sort of!

This morning I did the finish work sewing on the base of the cosy. The base knit is doubled so I had to sew the two layers together at it's side openings.

I couldn't wait to take some photos to post my progress on Ravelry. I decided to get some fresh flowers from my yard and put them on the lid for the photographs. I had to substitute geraniums for roses since my roses had already been cut.

Turns out, I love my tea cosy with fresh flowers! I am thinking of modifying the top now with floral-foam and using my cosy with fresh flowers at my tea parties! What do you think?

For the record...I will try to knit up some roses one of these days. For now I am off to knit on so many other knitting projects I already have in progress.

That is why I call myself...The Flitter Knitter!

Honestly, It's just beautiful with the fresh flowers. I love the modification. Do you end up redoing or is it smaller?
