what's the deal with tea cozies?
Seriously, every damn knitting book I get has a gosh darn tea cozy in it! It is so cliche. And seriously, who uses a tea cozy? A cashmere tea cozy? One with ruffles? One that looks like an eight ball? I have a half dozen patterns for tea cozies that I will never make, unless of course someone I know really needs a tea cozy. If someone calls me up and says, "jeez, I have this tea kettle and it is soooo cold!" I will go right out and buy the yarn to make them a tea cozy (but not the cashmere yarn, because I would on principle never make a cashmere tea cozy). I just don't get the tea cozy.
