"Now, the story behind this teacosy. My DMIL is first generation american. Her mother is from Ireland. DMIL gets lots of catalogues and such from Ireland. She can even have Irish citizenship (so can by DH). Anyway, cut out a picture of a teacosy from a catalogue and wanted me to come up with a pattern for it. I put it off forever. Then she went to Ireland and brought back the actual teacosy and Irish wool to knit it with. So, I came up with this pattern. It's pretty close to the actual teacosy. She even made me one."

Yeah... sounds just like my mother LOL My mother asked me to knit her a green cap. I have been doing other things, not her cap, so the next thing she does is to give me a book about knitted hats, caps and such...
I have seen many copyright notices, but I think these are the best!

P.S. Today's free pattern (;-)) is Interweave Knits' summer 2005 shrug special. If you like shrugs, here you have a selection - for different types of yarns, styles, preferences...
P.S. This goes for crafters too...
