Cup of tea anyone?

I've enjoyed taking a break from knitting scarves lately, and getting back to knitting tea cosies.
Although, I looked in my box this afternoon, and I've managed to knit up about a dozen in the last couple of months! Which is a good thing because they always go well at Magnolia Square, which will be here before I know it.
I love to play around with stitch and colour, and this one came from thinking about Aran jumpers. I do love a bit of cable stitch.
That beautiful cup and saucer belonged to my grandmother, one of a set of 8 that are all different in pattern and shape. It's nice to put one out on show in my bookcase from time to time.
I'll let you in on a secret, I don't actually drink tea...although I do aspire to it!
