Maybe it's from watching all that Downton Abbey (can't wait for the new season!) and a bunch of BBC shows (Sherlock, The Hour, Survivors, Being Human) - I'm quite the Anglophile!
Anyhow, I've learned that hot tea needs help to stay hot. Which of course means a teapot cozy. I knit myself one, and just added a few to my Etsy shop. It's my own design, after a few trial and error versions. I knit it with a drawstring top to make it adjustable for a variety of teapot sizes. The hardest part was figuring out how to make spaces for the handle and spout.
This one's made with hand-dyed yarn.
This one's made from super soft cotton.
So, any other British drama fans out there? Let me know in the comments.
