Experienced knitters will recognize this common abbreviation for the process of decreasing by knitting two stitches together to make one. But when two or more friends who knit come together over a cup of tea, the result is not a decrease, but an increase—in helpful advice, sociability, and fun.
For our Knitters’ Tea, we’ve devised a menu of treats, both savory and sweet, perfect for a gathering on a cold winter’s day. Greet your guests with Cinnamon Scones, warm from the oven, and a freshly brewed pot of tea. Then feed their creative spirit with Shepherds’ Pie, Italian Sausage Meatballs, and clever Mitten Muffulettas. Your reward for an afternoon of rows completed will be sweet treats like Date and Walnut Spice Cookies, easy-to-make Caramel-Apple Mini Tartlets, and chocolatey Lamingtons.
The clever china pattern that looks as if the teapot and teacups have been knitted in garter stitch rows is Yedi Houseware Matte Sweater.
