Hospital Patient Tea Cosy


If the Carry On team were to design a tea cosy, the accident prone hospital patient tea cosy is probably something that they would come up with.

I have got a bit side tracked as I was waiting for yarn deliveries and I got enthusiastic about another tea cosy design that I’d like to make; the hospital patient tea cosy.



This tea cosy depicts a hospital patient who has multiple injuries. I thought if I was going to create a hospital patient; that I would do a bit of an over the top, Carry On Doctor, poke fun at sort of scheme. So, the design has the hospital patient with a broken leg and a crutch, one arm in a sling and their head completely bandaged up. I have put an old fashioned thermometer in their mouth which is red all the way tot he tip and they are also wearing an NHS gown and we all know the gapping problem there is with them!



I also love the tradition that when someone is ill that we give them grapes, it must be a throwback from the 1930’s when grapes were expensive and a luxury item, and they were given as a special feel 'good food' treat that might magically make you better with their few extra vitamins. I thought it would be comic to give the hospital patient a dwindling bunch of grapes.



I have some lovely King Cole Smarty on order for the NHS gown to create a spotty pattern. I thought it would be easier than intarsia or swiss darning a pattern on after knitting. I’m looking forward to seeing how the yarn turns out.



I especially love the toes popping out of the plaster and I like that under the bandages, it could be a him or her patient. I like as well that if you know of someone who’s I’ll, that you could send them a get well soon tea cosy instead of a get well soon card and it’s a bit tongue in cheek which will make people laugh. They do say that laughter is the best medicine.
