10 places I would be inspired to knit…(or not knit)

Nuwara Eliya, Sri Lanka

I’ve always wanted to visit a tea plantation and why not here…in Sri Lanka?!

 Île de Ré, France

Lighthouses and the views that surround them.

Ever since I thought I had won a trip to Micronesia, I’ve wanted to visit this incredibly gorgeous archipelago.



Pretty much anywhere in Indonesia would be fine by me.



Same as Cambodia…I would love to visit any part of it.

Angkor Wat, Cambodia

Northwest Territories, Canada

In discovering more of my homeland, I’ve still got to visit the north…

Yellowknife Area, Canada

Maritimes, Canada

…and the east.

Peggy’s Cove


I never really thought of Denmark as a place I’d like to visit until I moved to Europe.

I’m starting to notice a distinct WATER theme to these places that I want to visit.

Copenhagen, Denmark

New Zealand

I’d go back there anytime! What a gloriously diverse country NZ is from its rain forests and beautiful towns and its beaches and mountains.

Lake Tekapo, New Zealand


My biggest desire is to spend a LOT of time in this mesmerizing country: Its colors, vegetarianism, people, spirit, landscapes, food…


Time for some chamomile

I love fresh flowers as tea. And chamomile is just about the best flower to use.

You can dry the flowers and store them in airtight jars or pop some in a glass —a nice, see-through glass shows off the tiny, white flowers and petit yellow buds floating in the water. Add hot water …just before the boil is best.

You can strain the tea, use a tea basket or leave the flowers in the water and use a bombilla infusion straw to sip up the deliciousness.

Camomille all washed up —soon this will be some nice relaxy tea.
