Knit Teacup Cozy
I saw this pattern (Knit Coffee Sleeve) on Ravelry and it looked like the perfect knit to get me back in the swing of things after the holidays. I bought a mug just for the cozy, and it took me all of an hour to make. I would have posted it sooner, but it was a surprise birthday gift for a tea-loving friend of mine, and I didn't want to spoil it!
Look at that texture! Say it with me now... "oooh! aaah!" Its a great pattern - my first experience with the horseshoe cable.
I did something a little funky to make it stay on the cup... I'm not sure I could explain it well, but it works like a charm. I may try to perfect it a little more and then write up a tutorial on it. We'll see though - I seem to have a lot of grand ideas just not coming to fruition these days!
