Fit for a Mad Hatter!

My tea cozy (cosy) is finally finished. Stared on July 7 with this, it evolved into this! You can see some of the process here. It fascinates me to see it grow, even as I have created it. You can also see the close-ups here. It was very engaging to make. and talk about using scrapes of stash!! Can you guess I am very pleased with it?

Its been suggested I should name it. I am open for suggestions!

Fabulous. Love how you've harnessed this free-formed medium into something entirely functional.

That is the tea cozy to end all tea cozies! Warm cozy, hot tea! No names with pizazz--other than Lady Grey, she must be the partner of Earl Grey. And, the cozy is the opposite of "grey".....

Oh - I love the Lady Grey name suggestion. And love the tea cozy.

It has to be the Mad Hatter's Tea Party, surely? Superb freeform work - an impossible act to follow!

I love the tea cozy. I would have to wear one on my head too but that's because I don't have a tea pot.

I'm trying to think of some outlandish name but it's alluding me. Awesome cozy though.
