I have a big thirst for knitting! ;0} Take a look at the size of this tea cup - 7 1/2 inches high and 9 inches across (not counting the handle). I saw this beauty in a Kitchen Collections outlet store when I was visiting my aunt and uncle in Denver last month. The tea cup is not an item sold in the store. It is actual a display that holds a bunch of tea infusers with miniature copies of this tea cup on the end. I asked the store manager if there was any way that I could buy this tea cup and was told that I could purchase it once the tea infusers were all sold. I quickly gave her my aunt's phone number, since she graciously consented to mail the tea cup to me. It just arrived today. I was going to display the cup with my collection of quirky tea pots, but like it much better sitting beside me while I knit. I just love it!!
