Fit like?

That's an Aberdeen greeting meaning "How are you?"

Well this tea cosy fits my teapot.  And it's very ...well...cosy.  It's got a lining and everything.

Thanks to Grand Purl Baa for the pattern which is in her latest book How Tea Cosies Changed the World.

I hope it fits Fi's teapot.  It's her SIGNIFICANT birthday very soon.

You're a long time deid, as they say in Scotland, so best have a blether with your friends over a cup of tea as often as possible.  Or something stronger perhaps.

I'm looking forward to a knees-up with Fi soon.  And in our case, that would mean lifting ours knees up a few hills around the ..burbs and blethering endlessly in the wee hours of the morning. 

We call it exercise.

And finally...

Here's tae us; wha's like us?
Gey few, and they're a' deid.
Mair's the pity! 

Full credit to LynnM for all the help finding Scottish phrases et al...

Have you got a Scottish story to tell?  Have you been to Scotland?  Are you Scottish?  If so, what do you like/miss about Scotland?
