They have lived abroad many years, among other in Kenya. She brought back this wonderful tea pot, which has been well used over the years. She is using a knitted and felted tea cosy, that originally started its life as a hat for my uncle. However, his head is not that big. We have spent many times over that tea cosy, laughing. I thought she loved that cosy, but it turned out that she used it because it was the only thing she had. So I figured, I will make her one!
I put things together from many pictures and patterns. I wanted Africa, and all the things she loves about it. Baby elephants and bright flowers,
Baby hippo and colorful birds. I got uncle to remeasure the pot yesterday, afraid it would not fit. It does! I will give it to her next weekend when I visit them.
First finish for this vacation:)
