The joy of a newly rediscovered old finished object

I was in a colleague's office today and there was this little beauty I made sitting on his tea pot! Gorgeous huh? He wanted "the gayest tea cosy ever" and when presented with this said it was "the gayest thing I've ever seen"! High praise indeed.

The idea came from a similar cosy on Yarnstorm. The pattern is from Rowan Classic Home book five and I crafted it from some cheapo five ply cotton from Lincraft and then sewed on rows and rows of glass fake pearls. I went with glass because I was worried the hot tea could potentially cause melting and lead to loss of shine.

Here's another shot. Isn't she photogenic?

That teapot cozy is just too much. I love it and I want one even though I don't own a teapot. I might have to go get a teapot for the exclusive purpose of knitting that cozy.
