Rosebuds is finished.

Hi all,
Finally finished this, it's just another flowery tea cosy, nothing you haven't seen before, but with the lovely pink, green & cream yarn for the base what else would I do.

The top is full of rosebuds, I quickly took a photo of it this morning to put up while I write out the pattern, but I'll take a couple more.
The pattern could not be easier, if you can't source the same yarn I'll add as much info as I can so you can hunt for something similar. Otherwise it may be a bit boring with a plain garter stitch base. The rosebuds & leaves are so simple, even though there are 15 of them lol.

While I love the cosy, I'm dying to make a market bag with the same yarn & rosebuds, to take to knitting group. So while the cosy will be put to good use, I'm really looking forward to making & using the bag.
I'm definitely asking Santa for enough yarn for Christmas to make one (he had better get his credit card out as it's going to take a lot of yarn for this bag)!
So here's the pic (hope you didn't mind me having some fun with the posts & I hope it's not an anti-climax lol).
This one will go off to K4BN to their market table, hopefully someone might buy it.

The pattern will be up for free the next day or so.
Hope everyone is getting all Christmasy,
love Jen.
