While there is nothing better than finding excellent appreciative homes for one's wilder teacosies, and also, nothing much better than crocheting away with a special tea drinking friend in mind, some teacosies never leave home and instead become part of the stable stable.
For instance, in winter, Miss Scallopini does a superbly functional job at keeping one's tea warm for an extended period of time. The pattern is available for FREE from Crochetroo. It takes a TONNE of yarn, but it is worth it for a super insulating teacosy.
And here are teacosies #1, #2 and #10 all in a huggle. Patterns for #1 and #2 also from the lovely Crochetroo. Here is the link here for the Crochetroo etsy site.
Teacosy #6 was until recently gainfully employed at the Pasha Bulka, more formally known as the big shipping container, but actually the Queanbeyan Government Service Center where a certain duck once kept a hot desk. (AGAIN, a crochetroo tea cosy base)
She is quite lovely from left and from right me thinks.
