Stitch Tuesday – Ginger Stitch

The air is crisp and it finally feels like proper fall. I’m not a big tea drinker, which is a great disappointment because I love being cozy. What is cozier than cold air, warm blanket and a hot cup of tea? Despite my misfortune, I do get by. One of the best beverages, I find, is lemon and ginger and honey brew. It’s soothing and warm and has lots of great benefits. Today’s pattern is in honer of ginger. It’s a pretty enough lace for a garment, yet dense enough for a blanket.
