Falling Water

Mr. T and I spent the long weekend (Martin Luther King Day for us residents of America) in Toronto visiting the folks. It was nice and relaxing and allowed us to finally give them our Christmas gifts. Mr.T picked up this Zarafina tea maker suite all on his own. If you haven't had tea made in one of these things, I gotta say, you're missing out. I enjoy a cup of tea as much as the next guy but this thing really delivers. Even Mr. T, who ironically is not a tea drinker, actually enjoyed a few sips from my cup. So, although this contraption is not really needed for a good cup of tea, it's sort of fun to watch and as the instruction manual says, heightens your tea experience.I made this Falling Water Lace scarf for my MIL. It was a bit of a surprise for her since she saw the beginnings of it on the blog but wasn't sure who it was going to. I think she was pleased with it and apparently was wanting something hand knit for awhile now. My kind of lady! The lace pattern really showed up nicely after wet blocking and the silk gave it a lovely drape, perfect for staying cozy in the blustery Toronto winter.
