Knit Your Own Crown Jewels

As the Royal Wedding approaches, I’ve chosen something topical for my Saturday Selection today.

I’m always amazed at what you can do with a pair of needles and some yarn – remember my Wooly Wedding post recently? – but now, thanks to Debi Birkin at Periwinkle Park, you can knit your own crown.  Well, officially, it’s for the teapot but, as Billy Connelly said  ‘Never trust a man who, when left alone in a room with a tea cosy, doesn’t try it on.’

 

I have had knitting patterns from Debi before and she has some adorable ones in her Etsy shop.

    LOLOLOL I ABSOLUTELY LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS!

    Oh if only I could knit!! ..and that egg cozy!!! WOW!

    Are you intending to make some? I’ll put an order in for some egg cozy’s for sure😉

    I adore crowns anyhow – and have tons of things shaped in a crown around the flat! In fact, I was going to do a crown picture post of little things I have – in honour for the Royal Wedding too!!
