On Saturday, 17 October I attended a tea party hosted by the ever-exciteable Jess of Ginger Twist fame and the talented Claire Devine at Pekoe Tea in Stockbridge. The party was to launch the tea hat collection patterns created by Claire which were knit using Jess’s yarn.
The event was a sell-out, and those who paid extra for a pattern and yarn joined together with the virtual world in casting on a tea collection hat. Having enough on my plate at the moment, I chose not to join the knit along. There was still plenty to entertain though. I brought along my current knitting project and settled down to knit with friends. The evening included tea cocktails (as I was driving I was unable to partake in this), a selection of tea and macarons. We were also given a whistle stop tour in tea education and had the chance to try on the collection of hats. It was a rather an interesting evening in great company.
