But just quietly, I think the rest of my life needs a bit of cosy-i-fying. Looking around there are just too many objects in my life that could do with a cosy. I am seriously coveting a tv cosy to cover the ugly black thing in the corner (it's not really even a box anymore, is it?).
And I'm very tempted to craft up a cosy for my bicycle helmet. That would be quite sweet, I think.
And how about a cosy for the swing seat? Or the iPad? Or even a vase cosy or two?
Yes, I think along with the dishcloth domination, 2012 could be the year of the cosy. I've started small. Our peach glut and the impossibility of peaches in the school lunchbox, resulted in a peach cosy.
I'm not sure why I've never made one before! Totally fabulous. Keeps Lily's peach all perfect until fruit time. This will be equally fabulous through winter as an apple cosy too. I suspect I'll need to whip up a pear cosy though, as that's another favourite fruit that is doesn't lunchbox well.
I think it won't be long and every cool kid at her school will be wanting their mum to whip them up a fruit cosy. I mean, how could they not covet this cuteness?
I offered to knit her a sandwich cover cosy next, but I think she's worried about the jealousy this would cause her peers and said no. I can't say I wasn't a wee bit disappointed though...oh well, Toby starts kinder next year. I'm sure he'd love a set of lunchbox cosies.
