Kochkor tea cosy

I made a tea cosy for a friend on the Silk Road trip. I was supposed to finish it and give it to him on the trip, but ran out of time. So here it is, finished today (unless I decide to put leaves on it, but it barely looks like the daffodil pattern so I wonder if there is any point).

 I started this birch in Kyrgyzstan, right after I finished the blue Lacey Baktus. But from there on there was a lot of desert and hot and prickly and I put it away and barely looked at it until we got to the relative cool of Turkey.

Here I took it balloon riding in Cappadocia.

 Here we are in the Aya Sofia in Istanbul.

 And outside the Blue Mosque.

I finished it on the train from Istanbul to Bucharest, which is a shame, because I wanted to give it to a friend on the trip.

Not to worry, I shall carry it around until I find it a home.
