Of course, not all gifts need to be homemade. If you have the budget then the sky is the limit when it comes to extravagant tea related gifts and there are plenty of silver tea caddies out there to choose from.
It’s taken me a while to finish off the other project that was utilising my 5mm needles, but this week I was finally able to cast on the tea cosy. At the end of the first couple of rows I finally clicked as to what it was that the colours kept reminding me of – battenberg cake! I can’t pretend that my baking skills are up to making my own cake, so Mr Kipling helped out with the props for this photo.
