You betcha that tea is hot....and the nalbinding is even hotter! Gotta love a Java Jacket in Korgen stitch. My increases look like I had too much of a good thing there, but I think it is the change of colors that makes them so apparent. Works like a charm though, and environmentally friendly. So whip one of these little babies up and wow them at your local coffee emporium. Ah, tea and wool....yummy!
