Tea + Knitting + Mystery = Perfect!!

It's close to September and the time to sip a hot Earl Grey tea, sit, relax and think about the next sock knitting mystery!
Yes, I know!  Not another mystery! and another pair of socks??  What's wrong with that gal?
But, I love tea and when I saw this sock knitting challenge was a mystery too--I just couldn't resist.
Five clues will be released around 5-7 am EST on
September 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29.
Top-down. Cables, lace, and BEADS!!  Fleegle heel--something new to my knitting technique! 
74 beads required.  Written in honor of tea drinkers and Star Trek fans everywhere!  Designed by Heidi Nick.  Pattern is free for Sock Knitters Anonymous Ravelry group

Okay, as a bonus, I'll give you couple Earl Grey tea recipes. 

Ingredients for Earl Grey Hot Chocolate:  Serves 2

  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • 1 ½ tsp earl grey tea
  • 6 square of dark chocolate, or to taste
  • 1. Combine the milk and tea in a saucepan and gently heat without boiling. Continue heating for approximately 10 minutes. The milk will take on a light tea color.
  • 2. Place 3 (or more if desired) squares of chocolate into a heatproof glass. Pour the milk over the chocolate using a tea strainer/colander to strain off the leaves. Serve.  

Or how about an iced Earl Grey Tea:  Brew your Earl Grey tea strong--twice as much bags or leaves as usual.  Steep about 5 minutes.  Pour over ice, add some simple sugar syrup, little vanilla and add milk!  Ahhhh, delicious!
