FO Friday... Cosy Urchin

It's very rare I complete a project and post about it on the same day but, seeing as Fridays are normally Finish Off posts on a few other blogs out there; I thought I'd tag along today.

Here is my version of the free Ravelry pattern Grannies Traditional Tea Cosy. A neighbour recently mentioned they've been after a nice traditional tea cosy, I told them to leave it with me and I'd see if I could find a pattern they might like. They will be moving house shortly which makes me and my boys really sad as their children play with us regularly and being on a Cul-de-Sac we have impromptu Scooter races and football matches when the sun is shining after the school run.It will make a good house warming present I think.
 I amended the pattern slightly to fit the colours I had to hand and the length of repeats is less to fit a shorter tea pot. I also wasn't keen on the big flower on the top so stuck to a loop. Finally, I added an I-cord loop and a button fastener for between the handle.

It rather reminds me of a sea urchin, I'm really pleased with it!
