Three Shades of Grey

I am very delighted to share with you a little project which designed itself as I knitted it up just last night and this morning !!!

Using three shades of grey…

A little something for my Old Pioneer Jar Method of brewing tea…

Though I normally use the clear kind of canning jars, for these photos I used one of my collection of  antique blue glass canning jars, with zinc lids. So pretty…

And so, I made a cozy little Tea Cozy for my Jar Brewing method.  It’s so adorable ,  I’m over the moon about it ! It reminds me a little of a Nepali or Tibeten Headress.

Bird’s eye view, knotted i-cord ‘bobble’ handle…

I call it “Earl Grey”

It rather speaks of it’s delicious namesake…

I like to drink my tea in a pint glass.

…and add whole milk.

Earl Grey Tea Cozy.   Whimsical.  Playful. Silly !

Do you suppose a standard 6-cup English teapot version is inevitable?

Maybe, but for now, I am quite pleased to be presenting my own pioneer tea-brewing method and the cozy”Earl Grey” Tea ‘Jar’ Cozy !
