Oriental Beauty

As the steam gently rises from your tea cup, you breathe in the beautiful aromas gliding into the air, a sense of calm washes over you … sitting down, you pick up your knitting and gently ease back into your favourite chair, relaxing stitch by stitch.

Created to celebrate the launch of The Tea Collection Club and inspired by the deliciously rich Oolong tea from my favourite Edinburgh tea shop, Pekoe Tea.

Oriental Beauty is worked in aran weight yarn – so it knits up quickly and is a really satisfying project. Worked inside out to minimise purling and maximise knitting relaxation, this striking hat features three bold columns that really pop against the reverse stocking stitch background.

The yarn is a brand new addition to the Ginger’s Hand Dyed family and features their favourite Masham wool! It’s a real treat.

Introducing The Tea Collection Yarn Club

Jess, from Ginger Twist Studio, and I simply adore the quiet moments brought into our day by the rituals of knitting and tea. In 2015 we worked together to create The Tea Collection and in 2017 we are back, celebrating our love of tea and knitting through hats.

The Tea Collection Club features:

  • 12 glorious months of sumptuous hand-dyed yarn

  • 12 gorgeous hats to knit

  • Delicious tea samples

Choose from an annual subscription, a monthly payment plan or simply pick your favourite seasonally inspired quarter. For more details about The Tea Collection Club pop over to www.gingeranddevine.com

We hope you love our new collaboration as much as we do. It has been so fun putting the 12 designs together and I can’t wait to share all the beautiful colourways Jess has developed for this special club.

If you have any questions or suggestions please drop me an email, I am always happy to hear from you.

Until next time – happy knitting!
