Thrifty Gift: Tea Cosy

At about 150 yards of yarn and a few buttons, a tea cosy is a quick knit. Check out Ravelry for pattern ideas. If you aren't sure whether the recipient's tea pot's handle is on the top or side, make a cosy that fastens with buttons for maximum flexibility. A box of tea and a packet of shortbread round out this gift nicely!

I've made this one a couple times with good results. It knits up quick and is more practical than frilly. (Although I do like the really silly, frou-frou ones too! :-)
