with double-bergamot if I can find it. Lady Grey (with lavender) isn't bad either.

Oh, is there any other way to enjoy Earl Grey? Love the bergamot.
As for Lady Grey, I am not sure what brand you purchase, but I have Twinings. No lavender. It is a light black tea scented with bergamot, and citrus. Yours sounds a lot better. I do grow a lot of lavender, so, in the Lady Grey it will go . :-)

Lavender - that was the scent for Lady Grey that I couldn't quite put a name to. Thanks. I, too, am an Earl Grey drinker, along with tea in general. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Tea is the BEST, Joe. I

Tea is the BEST, Joe. I drank nothing but herbals for a long, long time. Now I am more into green and black teas. Organic Yerba Mate is one of my favorites of all. I cannot get enough of the stuff.

The name is a little

The name is a little misleading. The hat was named after EZ, not designed by her. The designer asked Meg Swansen if she could name a hat design after her mother and Meg chose the Cloche.

Anzula will be in booths

Anzula will be in booths 838 and 840 at Stitches West. Be sure to go fondle some yarn. My favorite is the 'For Better or Worsted' Merino/Cashmere/Nylon blend. Oasis is also nice and what she donated to the Mens NZ Retreat last year.

THAT is one gorgeous hat!!!

THAT is one gorgeous hat!!! I was going to ask you how you did that in just six days, but I figured it out. How much of that can of sugar (Kool-Aid) under that hat did you drink? Talk about your sugar rushes! Given another can I bet you would have had that hat done in TWO days. :-)
Really, beautiful job.

Fully Sugared (no diet

Fully Sugared (no diet crap!) Kool-Aid is the Elixir of the gods! That and a lot of Earl Grey tea. Caffeine and Sugar an unbeatable team, at least legally.
