I have been looking forward to this day's blog post with a little list of things to share: best way to chemically fake a heart attack, three ways to hide a body at a funeral, icky things that make great biological clues, fun mysteries to enjoy on Netflix while you catch up on housework now that the kids are back in school. As you can see, especially if you aren't on the left coast like I am, I didn't get it done.
But I did notice from the previous two posts that it is tea time! I can dig that. I've got my own little collection of tea pots, two for Christmas, two for pretty, and one we use everyday. Well, not literally, but several times a week.
A tea party, Hilton style, looks something like this:
Other nights the tea pot follows us into the bedroom where we snuggle down and watch our favorite mysteries. I can wholeheartedly recommend Rosemary and Thyme, a very cozy British Mystery available for streaming at Neflix.
But I can't leave it at just this picture. My post feels incomplete without offering you a little something to take home. So...here is the pattern for a great tea cozy you can knit!

And with that, I must be off. Tea doesn't steep itself!
