Knit a tea cosy competition

Pop the kettle on and create your own tea cosy knitting pattern!

After Jenny's round up of summer tea party craft projects earlier this week, we're sticking with the theme with news of a fun new competition to design a tea cosy! Craft publishers GMC are calling on knitters everywhere to put their thinking caps (and kettles!) on and whip up a new tea cosy knitting pattern. 3 lucky winners will get to see their patterns in print in the latest in their series of GMC's Tea Cozies book series! All you have to do to take part is create a unique tea cosy design, based on any theme you like. To enter...

... you just need to pick up an entry from from any participating yarn or craft store or download your entry form here, then come up with an utterly unique design. You'll then need to submit your knitted tea cozy along with a typed up design and the entry form, to a participating store such as Yandle & Sons Craft Shop in Martock, Somerset, The Wool Bar in Worthing, West Sussex and Baa Ram Ewe in Leeds. The closing date for entries is 23 September 2012.
