My last few teacosy creations have been very much in the ‘vintage’ style, my last was out and out kitsch. So I felt a return to a more organic, artisan style was called for.

I don’t know about you, but one of the joys I have with knitting and crochet is tailoring my creations to reflect the style of my friends. Making something with love. Saying; ‘this is a little bit of you reflected in this trinket’. I found this pattern from Ruth Bridgman from Ruth Cross in the book Purls of Wisdom by Jenny Lord.

The pattern reminds me of a fossil or a shell and I knew immediately that it was perfect for Mrs M, who has had a birthday this month.  Those of you with a particular eye, will be thrilled to know that I have tidied up the pom pom on top before sending it off. Phew! A delightful pattern for a dear friend…now what’s next?
