The tea cosy is complete and it has pleased me to such an extent that I had to throw together a quick post about it. I thought originally that I was too cool for pompoms and planned to leave it plain.  When I was done, however, it just didn’t look finished so I posted a quick snap to Twitter to see what other people thought.

Slightly crappy photo but I wasn't thinking about blog posts at the time.

Somewhat surprisingly, the opinion of my followers seemed to be that a pompom was an absolute necessity – who knew that fluffy balls of wool were so popular?  In my heart of hearts I knew they were right and so…

Old lady-style finishing touches win the day.

You are obviously never too cool for a good pompom.
