I can only apologise for title-punning, but I'm really rather excited about an upcoming event which I wanted to share with you!!

Last year, Clare Devine launched a 'Tea Collection' containing several yummy hats. This autumn she plans to complete the collection with some new hats, which are created in beautiful yarn (as always) hand-dyed by Jess of Ginger Twist Studio in Edinburgh.
The pair are hosting a Tea Party at Pekoe Tea in Edinburgh. It'll apparently involve tea, tea cocktails(?!) and nibbles. The owner of Pekoe tea will be telling everyone about the tea, where it comes from, interesting things etc. Yarn wise, there'll be lots of hat samples, yarns and patterns to play with!
There are two options to attend, the 'with yarn and patterns & baggie' version, and the tea only version. I'm tempted to tell you not to be mad and that the second isn't a real option, but in the spirit of equal chances and all that, the two tickets are as follows:
“Tea Tasting Experience” (or a Tea Cocktail of your choice) and plenty of chance to chat to Jon about the magical world of tea.
- Your choice of pattern from The Tea Collection (or another of Clares patterns if you have it already)
- A fabulous skein of yarn from Ginger’s Hand Dyed to knit your very own “Tea Hat” - you can read more about the skeins and colours available over on Clares blog.
- A Neighbourhood Sheep Society tote bag
The Tea is between 7 and 9pm on the 17th of October, and tickets are available via the Ginger Twist website. If you'd like more details about the event you can find a lovely blog post by Clare.
I'll need to make sure I clear the needles before the middle of October...
Is anyone else going??
