I’ve been cleaning out my cupboards and finding new homes for anything that I haven’t used in a while …

These mugs have a lovely Celtic knot designs which remind me of knitted cables!

They were a holiday purchase some years ago, as I liked the design and wanted to support the local business. But … they are relatively small (9 cm tall) and are always overlooked in favour of larger tea-holding vessels, so I think it is time for them to move on to someone who will love them and actually use them. Into the charity shop box 😀

As a final musing … Is it coincidence that ‘knot’ and ‘knit’ are such similar words? Finding these mugs has set me thinking 😉 I’ll look into it. In the meantime, I know some of you are knowledgable wordsmiths – can you help?

Now, is it time to put the kettle on? 😀

    Definitely time for tea – always!!

    As for knit v knot – yes I believe they are etymologically related but I forget the details and would have to look it up again!!

    Lots of celtic knots around me now as I wend my way through a lot of cables in a hat here in Brittany… Inspiration galore 😃

    One day, I’ll have a go at crocheting the celtic knot border – meanwhile, yes, this are lovely mugs, and I’m very glad you didn’t offer them to me because I would have taken them (and later regretted it)! 🙂

      Hehe! Yes, when I saw them, I thought of you and @swissrose and wished I’d found them before the boxes had been shipped 😉 They haven’t reached the charity shop yet, so I could rescue them from the box if you were interested 😉

        That’s kind – check with @swissrose, but I think we have a surfeit of mugs (though she may be willing to chuck some out to make room for these!)
