Found a fabulous crochet blog: Crochet with Raymond and used her pattern (with some changes cos my yarn was chunkier) to create a fabulous rainbow tea cosy.  However, the cafetiere got jealous and I couldn't stand the tension in the kitchen, what with the snide comments and tea pot gloating...anyway...I made a coffee cosy too.  It's all hunky dory again in the kitchen.  Both beverage creators are now smug (or should that be snug) and happy.  The breadbin is looking a bit left out though...

It's not their fault, it's all the caffeine. 

These are really cool.  I am a big fan of Crochet with Raymond.  She would be proud.  Grin
