I am always excited when I find ceramics that bear knitted designs because they combine my two loves: knitting and tea. Iittala’s Sarjaton collection is no exception.
A reader of the blog sent this delightful sale item to my attention: the Crafty Kitty kit from KnitPicks. The kit includes a Great Catsby mug, a white Danica teapot, a coaster and dishcloth pattern, and 8 skeins of their dishie yarn in coordinating colors. Tea and knitting all in one place!
