Buttons

These buttons were made specially for The Constant Knitter.  My favourites are the skull and the teapot.  Speaking of teapots, don’t forget to visit us to check out the 60+ tea / caffetiere / mug cosies entered in our Tea Cosy Competition in aid of St Brigid’s  NS.

Also, the Michael “T” Higgins tea cosy on loan to us for a few weeks is well worth a visit

These little critters were made by Niki Collier and students today in class.  They are intended for a mobile eventually

 

 

 

 

 

President Michael “T” Higgins Tea Cosy

This little guy was designed and made by Veronica Costello who very kindly lent it to us for the duration of our Tea Cosy Competition.  Veronica gave one to the President and apparently he loves it!

You could visit him and, at the same time, come and view the over 60 tea / caffetiere / mug cosies which were entered.  They were knitted, crocheted, felted, sewn and the imagination and craftsmanship exhibited is astounding!  We would love it if you would vote for your favourite – we have voting cards here in the shop.  All the proceeds of the competition go to St Brigid’s NS.
