This was sort of a gag gift for my boss, who had just been inducted into the Institute of Medicine, a huge deal. I made him a personalized, commemorative tea cozy to warm a tea pot hand made by another member of the group. I remember working frantically on this one on a plane. The monogramming is embroidered on.
Pattern: Kureyon Tea Cozy from Knitty.com (massaged significantly to fit the tea pot)
Yarn: Debbie Bliss merino aran
