My new teacosy...

I have a friend called Jenny whom I met through the knitting group, K4BN. Jenny is not just a knitter and crocheter, she also creates beautiful knitting patterns...quite a variety of designs too. For most of the raffles that K4BN runs to raise much needed funds, Jenny has usually donated one of her lovely cat tea cosies. These tea cosies are very popular prizes and I know that I always hoped to win one...but no, it didn't ever happen :-(. 
So earlier this year I commissioned Jenny to make me 2 cosies; one for me and one as a gift for my neighbour. Jenny had met my cat Eduardo and jokingly suggested that I might like an Eduardo cosy...and I thought that sounded fun. The other cosy would be a 'marmalade' cat. I said that there was no hurry for the tea cosies as I knew Jen had lots of other commitments. 
As we don't live close to each other, Jen asked for photos and descriptions of Ed so she could get his markings as accurate as possible...these were the 4 photos she worked from...
And yesterday my cosies arrived...
This is the 'Sleeping Cat' cosy and this one even has Eddie's striped tabby tail. And I am so thrilled with this! 
This is the other cosy I ordered...
I know my neighbour will love it...in our street she's known as the 'cat lady' as she has a few cats! 
Here's a link to Jenny's blog...in particular this link will take you to a post with a pattern for another version of the cat cosy...
It is easy to navigate the blog and check out more of Jen's creations using the same link.
