The Sarah Lund Tea Cosy
If you’re looking for that elusive Scandinavian gift for the office Forbrydelsen fan then you’ve still got time to knit a Sarah Lund tea cosy. Cheap and cheerful and nothing says Merry Christmas like the gift of acrylic wool. It takes about 4 hours to knit so you can do it while you’re watching telly.
I can’t read knitting patterns, in fact they may as well be in Danish, so I’ve written out instructions and done a chart in Excel. I’m a very basic knitter so on a scale of 1 to 10 it’s about a 2 difficulty wise.
If you don’t want to tackle that you could always pick up Emma Kennedy’s rather enjoyable Killing Handbook or the guide to Copenhagen, and twiddle your thumbs until series II of Borgen starts on January 5th.
Right, I’m off to knit my Birgitte Nyborg power suit mug cosies.
