Hello and welcome to the home of Knit 1 Tea 1 from the beautiful Island of Sri Lanka.
You are in the right place if you would like “a welcome break from daily stuff into a bit of peaceful paradise” Jayne Lipbalm
Want to buy a beautiful luxury hand knit gift for yourself or someone you love? Then I have a tropical treasure trove for you to dive in to. Can’t see what you’re after? Then check out my beautiful stash and have a look for some ideas in my gallery, it’s always a pleasure to knit a specially designed commissioned piece perfect for you.
“I am absolutely delighted with my beautiful shawl. The quality of the mohair and silk is gorgeous and the intricacy of the knitting is exceptional. Perfect for all season’s and the colour matches most of my outfit and my green eyes. Just perfect, I would be lost without it” Kim Clarkson
If you want some inspiration, get the kettle on, make a cup of tea, sit down and take a look around, Sri Lanka is a most beautiful and inspiring place to live.
Do you like to knit? Check out my knitting posts and if you live in Colombo you are more than welcome to come and join the monthly Knit and Crochet group, meeting once a month to sit, knit, share and of course have some Tea and Cake. Please get in touch using the contact page.
If you would like to learn to knit then I can help you with that too, lessons offered in the evenings or weekends and can be arranged whilst you are on holiday here too! It’s a wonderful craft for parent and child to learn together, please do get in contact if you would like to know more.
Like to eat tasty, healthy food? Find it difficult as you can’t get everything you need in Sri Lanka? After living here since 2007 I can adapt most recipes so you can make them with the local available ingredients and I love sharing them with you. You can find the collection of recipes here.
“I love the way you make the everyday things seem so beautiful” Sarah Lois
