YARN BOMBING & TEA COSIES

I LIKE TO THINK OF THE HUMBLE TEA COSIE AS A PR-CURSOR TO THE MODERN DAY YARN BOMB MOVEMENT, ALTHOUGH THE BIRTH OF YARN BOMBING IS SAID TO HAVE STARTED WITH A CROCHET DOORKNOB COVER.CAN YOU SPOT ANY SIMILARITIES IN THIS TEA COSIE & THIS YARN BOMBED BIKE?OF COURSE EVERY YARN BOMBED BIKE DESERVES A COSY YARN BOMBED BIKE RACK.SO IF YOU ENJOY CROCHET OR KNITTING IT’S TIME TO GET YOUR GRANNY ON.

        Briefly, I’m covering cosy history. Some of the cosy makers are known, most are not. Tea Cosy portraits include appropriate info – if I was to use your photos, credits would include reference to your Yarn Bombing, books, etc.

        Hi. Sorry for the late reply! My messaging has been playing up. Your tea cosy book sounds great. You can use the pictures, please let me know when you release the book so I can read it! Cheers
