Or - you might just be a BAD knitter and would really love a tea cosy!!!
CurlyPops said…
I don't know which one to choose. So far I can only knit scarves so maybe the book might inspire me to try something new...but of course the very BAD procrastinator in me says that I'll never be able to knit a tea cosy so go for the professionally knitted one.....eeeekkkkk . If I win you will have to choose for me...BAD at making decisions too!

Oh me - pick me! I've been a BAD BAD girl. Not bad at Blogtoberfesting - quite good at that actually. So good at it that I've been neglecting a whole lot of other things. That new treadmill that's taking up half the loungeroom has been lying idle during October coz I've had too much in the Blogosphere! (I would really really love a copy of your book...)

Oh, it's hard to pick - but I'd love a copy of your book... ;)

First off, I love your name. Were you born in Papua? i lived in Rabaul, New Britain for a few years as a child. I really, I mean REALLY, love your tea cosies. As I can't knit ( my brain accepts crocheting no worries but draws the line at knitting anything more than a stocking stitch with lousy tension) I would love to have the cosy. Thanks for the opportunity. Cherrie
Karin said…
I can knit so I will chose the book! But damn, the tea cosy is pretty sensational!!

I've been bad too. I haven't been doing my yoga when I told myself I'd be doing it every day. And I haven't. I need to for my health! Also, I've been crap at getting any gardening done. I wanted to be a good gardener this year. Haven't! Sigh.....

I did however rearrange my son's room today and that was way overdue. I even hung up some art work. Not all bad!! I am redeemable!

Hi Loani, I'm bad at patience. Not a good trait for much of anything, especially repainting a few rooms at home. Thus, the repainting has made me a bad mooder. And being a bad mooder who's bad at patience means I'm a bad knitter. But an excellent tea drinker - especially if the teapot is beautifully cosied. Then I'm all shiny and good again. (Thank you for the chance.)

Hi,
I love this....very liberating!! LOL Okay, I am a knitter, but I am so bad when it comes to finishing anything. I cast on and then I go to ravelry or I see someone elses projects and I cast on again. I never seem to finish any knitting that I start. Oh, it's bad...bad, bad, bad. I need the knitting fairy to come and finish all of my projects and.....then I can cast on again. See it's bad!!

I've been BAD in Blogtober, because although I've kept up with the blogging, I've done a lot of it when I should have been working!!
(love the book)

Hi Loani, I would love a copy of your book. So I can continue being bad at every thing (not cooking for the family, not doing the dishes, not cleaning, not folding the washing) and just keep on knitting, knitting, knitting!
mill said…
Oooo I am bad. I am a bad student for procrastinating all the time. I am a bad blogger for not updating often enough (so bad I knew I wouldn't able to participate in Blogtoberfest) I am also a pretty bad crafter cos I wish I could make things more often but this year has been too busy. Next year won't be busy though, so can I go in the draw for the book so I can knit up some of your fab tea cosies? They look fantastic!

I'm not even going to LOOK at these other comments til I've tried to convince you how BAD I can be because I want that tea cosy! I'm not going to be nice about it either - I can't knit to save myself so that's my first bad. I get to a part of the pattern I don't understand then I go free-form til I stuff it up, unpick it several times then throw it away in a huff blaming the patter. I don't like it when M. stands in my light when I'm doing something - anything - I get very cranky about that. I sometimes get over-excited when I'm with friends and do naughty things - I once rearranged a whole lot of paintings in a gallery during the opening. How pissed would I be if someone did that to me? Bad Chooky. I can be very patient at some things then at others - I just loose it. I was so bad tempered as a child I once tore up my teddy bear. Mum pushed me into the doorway of a shop when I was throwing a tantrum once and pretended she wasn't my mum. Are we there yet? The man at the petrol station the other night kept asking me if I wanted flybuys or 2 for the price of 1 and I asked him if he was trying to piss me off 'cause it was working. Should I stop now? I think maybe I should.
Bronwyn said…
Your tea-cosies are making me gasp! I was bad yesterday - I held my hand down on my car horn (for a very long time) at a person doing a 3-point turn across 4 lanes of traffic - normally I am patient with these types of drivers, but well, I had to let her know how I felt!
Lisa said…
Hmm I can knit but I really shouldn't, does that count? I don't have the patience to knit anything and would never be able to do anything like your tea cozy!
handmaiden said…
hi.....haven't stopped by before. so hello........I think i would be a bad knitter if i tried...I am a sewer and a jewellery maker not a knitter.....and I feel bad cos I cant keep up the comments I would like to leave
Sasparilla Sue said…
Come to think of it, I am a bad knitter. My mom has tried at least three different times that I can remember to teach me (at 15, 23 and a year ago) and I just can not pick it up. I'm also very bad at staying away from ebay and etsy.
Iron Needles said…
Oooh! I would love the book! I was mostly good at blogtoberfesting, missing only one day, and that due to circumstances beyond me. What am I bad at? I am really bad at coming up with things I am bad at. I much prefer to concentrate on the positive!
Linda said…
OMG OMG Your work is amazing and I am in awe!! I am BAD at knitting I have been knitting scarves for years and often get novelty tea cosy books from the library just LOVING them and admiring them. I have a few vintage ones Nan knitted (not novelty) she was an incredible knitter and crocheter! I was a BAD Blogtoberfester I started late and fell off the wagon very early but got back on again! I am also BAD coz I neglected too many things around the house to mention as blogging was so much more fun!!
Betty Jo said…
Right,I'm in love with the tea cosy,and I would really like to add it to my collection, so I will confess..I never follow recipies.
I can't do it. I have had a few bombs in the kitchen, but mostly success. I think that makes me a BAD cook. I never read instructions either,then wonder why I don't GET things.That's Bad and slack.Oh, I blogged everyday in Oct. BUT neglected the housework , so that's BAD number three!
MostLusty said…
Hmmmm.....so much BADNESS, so little time. Where to start? Well being a BAD student weighs heavily on my mind. 20 000 word dissertation due in June, word count....0. BAD online behaviour. Or is it classified as BAD if the virtual sex is so good? Hmmmm again, quite the conundrum. BAD at waiting. BAD at wanting. BAD at starting. BAD at consistently swimming laps. BAD consumer buying books and magazines ALL the time. BAD kitty indeed.

I have the book and I have my wool now. The cosie would be wonderful inspiration given that as mentioned previously I am BAD at starting.
Anja said…
Oh, I a bad student lately. I should be writing an essay, but I much rather sew or read.
That tea cosy is just amazing. And because I know that I will never be able to knit something like that (with or without a book) I0m choosing a tea cosy :o)
nomes said…
i am very bad at having arrguements with people inside my head, i feel it's much safer that way and i always win. I should be using my brain for better things like......saving the world and such any way TALLY-HO YOUNG LASS!
Lynne said…
Love your book. I am a bad knitter, rarely finishing anything. But your book looks exciting and inspiring, and I do love my tea....

Well, if you hear me yakkin', I'm a Bad Mother! I let my baby cry when she has a tantie; I say NO, mean it and reinforce the NO; and I take things that are really interesting, like sharp objects, away; and I'm going back to work. Yep. Just Bad. Good thing I utterly adore the kid. And I'm bad at getting on with my bloody knitting! After the first few hurdles, knitting makes me cross and I long for stocking stitch in the round so I don't have to think. At the moment knitting is my big BAD.

Having said all that, I'd still take the book. I won 2nd prize at my local show with your wonderful tea cosy pattern. Thanks for the inspiration - but now my family all want cosies for Christmas!

Oooh I have been a BAD crafter - I bought stash and scrapbook stuff even though i never get time to scrapbook.... and I have acquired yarn too. I have a recently acquired spinning wheel but I HAD to buy a drop spindle.... BAD stasher!
But if I win it will be for free, right? Free doesn't count as stash acquisition, does it?
So I'll take the book. Or the tea Cozy. Pick for me please. I'm not good at decisions. (As in, should I buy the blue yarn? or the red yarn? Oh look i bought them both...)
Sarah-Jo said…
ooo that tea cozy is soooo sweet, I cant knit to save my life, cant even coordinate chop sticks let alone knitting needles!

would love the tea cozy!
