What are you most proud of? I have designed patterns for over 40 years and love to see a new creation come off the needles and brighten up someone's day! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Follow the pattern - do not worry too much about tension - with tea cosy knitting its not that crucial - and have fun - give her a comical smile, put the eyes on slightly off center to look even more fun . Let you imagination run wild - make a purple cow!
