Today’s #giftalong2014 Design Spotlight theme: Tea Time!
While coffee may be the typical American go go juice, in most of the world tea is what keeps people going. What’s better than a nice cuppa and a tasty sweet treat on the side? So, what better inspiration for design than tea?! All the designs below are part of the Gift-A-Long and eligible to be knit/crochet for prizes through December 31, 2014 @ 11:59pm (EST)!

Maybe these are named for the people the tea are named for, but I’m still counting it because they’re really pretty.
