My parents recently ventured across the pond for a missions trip to London (I'm not jealous, I'm not jealous, I'm not...), and my dear mother brought back a few goodies for me. I didn't even know that she knew of my fondness for Cath Kidston!
I hoped that the tea bag packets tucked inside would be as charming as the box, and I was not disappointed! There's even a bit of chintz on the back. She also brought me a little pack of tissues -- how I shall ever bring myself to wipe my nose on these charming chaps, I don't know!
Better yet, the tea is quite good. It brewed up strong and dark, even in my favorite Anthropologie mug (which probably has close to a 16 oz. capacity!). The perfect companion for my current knitting project.
What project? Why, how kind of you to ask! *wink* It's a White Pine Cardigan, which I've had on my wish list for the longest time! Probably since I first started knitting. It's coming along nicely, although rows and rows of "knit through back loop/purl through back loop" ribbing have muddled my mind exceedingly! I hope the effect is worth it, because I'm quite slow with back loops. I should be ready to start the pattern soon, at any rate. Which means I'll "need" another cuppa soon.
