Teapot Pullover

I have knitted a sort of tea cosy.
Believe it or not but it started life as a legwarmer!

I love knitting with Sirdar Click, it knits up really quick on 7mm needles and the colours are really nice muted shades.
So, I had a few balls and I fancied a pair of legwarmers, so I could pretend I was a 'Kid from Fame', and started to knit. But as you can see from the photo I only got as far as a few rounds of rib in light green.
Then (don't ask me how this came into my head, I really don't know) I decided to turn it into a tea cosy.
I thought that the ribbed bit would be the bottom, but it became obvious by the time I started knitting the dark green stripe that that wasn't going to happen.
So the bottom became the top. I stitched it up and when I slipped it onto my teapot it became clear that it wasn't a teacosy at all, more of a pullover for a teapot, a fashion item.
You see it doesn't have a top which is really useful as you don't have to keep taking the cosy off to fill the pot. It will get a bit grubby and it might not keep the tea as warm for as long as your conventional cosy but I like it.
I'm going to knit another one and this time write down the pattern, I'll let you know how I get on.
