Olympic Tea Cosy

Now that I've got the team at work addicted to tea, it was about time to clothe the tea pot! It's difficult to find time to dedicate to knitting, so I set myself the challenge to knit one as part of the Ravelympics, casting on during the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics, then knitting like fury to complete in the 16 days that follow.

It wasn't particularly complicated or but with a week camping and then a week recovering from camping and decorating, the challenge was finding time to dedicate to kitting (and watching Olympics of course!)

So 16 days later I'm sat watching the closing ceremony covered in stray sequins! The yarn had hundreds incorporated, which gives its bling factor, but we are going to be finding them for months!

Tomorrow it's back to work and reality time, but when ever I make a pot of tea I'll remember the London 2012 Olympics!! so many memories of fantastics people achieving amazing results. Well done to all the athletics who took part, those that got medals and those that missed the mark, but showed courage and determination. Well done to the organisers for doing us proud with truly amazing opening and closing ceremonies and most importantly to all the volunteers, Police and Armed Forces who gave their time to make it all happen!

Thanks for an amazing 2 weeks!!!
