Honey and tea go so well together. When I had a bit of yarn leftover from my Honeybee socks, I decided that I needed to make a little something else to go with them. What better pairing than a tea cozy in the honeycomb pattern to match your socks? Put on a cuppa and enjoy your cozy socks with a nice warm pot of tea.
