Animated Tea Cosy

Description

The Robert Burns tea cosy is a tribute to the great Scottish poet. The tea cosy has Burns surrounded by some of his characters and symbols from his works. He's an adorable tea cosy and would be perfect for Burns Night.

Burns has a cup and saucer at his side, this is a 'cup o'kindness', for auld lang syne. and on the cup rests a robin, who might be the same one that cam to a wren's nest? In his jacket button hole he wears 'A Red, Red Rose', and in one of his pockets lives a little mousie beastie who needed a new house after his was spoilt. In Roberts Burn's hands he carries a platter with a haggis, that he looks as if he were about to address. Around the back of the tea cosy is Nannie wearing her cutty sark. Nannie holding up Maggie's tail that she pulled off in the chase after Tam O'Shanter.

It's been such a joy knitting and putting together all of these symbols that you wouldn't usually see together. And its been great fun researching the poems and selecting the elements that I wanted to use to create a tea cosy dedicated to Roberts Burns.

A special Burns night tribute tea cosy.
