the story behind tükz

If you take a look at my tea cosies, you will see a startling resemblance to these toques. Yes, the hats are basically tea cosies without holes for spouts and handles.

My original tea cosy pattern was based on the shape of a close-fitting toque that I knit for myself a couple of years ago. I didn't really think about making hats out of recycled sweaters until a guy in my Alexander Training put one of the cosies on his head during tea break one day (read the tea cosy story, here). His comment was that I should make some hats.

So I did.
