meet loani queen of the tea cosies 8 www.craftevents.co.nz Loani Prior, Published Knitter, Grand Purl Baa and Queen of the Tea Cosies will be at the Craft & Quilt Fair showing off knitted treats from her three books, Wild Tea Cosies, Really Wild Tea Cosies and How Tea Cosies Changed the World. Loani’s wild, frivolous and fun designs for this humble domestic object have elevated the tea cosy to an objet d’art. Loani’s life has also changed since the 2008 publication of her first book Wild Tea Cosies. She describes it like this: “I knit from home, in my comfortable knitting chair, dreaming up little woolly objets d’art to adorn the humble teapot.” “Come and play tea cosy with me. Bring your very own favourite to show me. And if you have any knitty questions, bring them too and I’ll see if I can help”, says Loani. Photographer: Ken Brass Australian Country magazine
