Mug Cozies

Are you not tired of your cup of hot beverage cooling down too quickly? Well, I am tired of that happening to my cup of goodness. So I thought about it and realized teapots have cozies for that very problem, why not make a cozy for my cup?

Here is a pattern I wrote up and I have been making these and selling them faster than I can make them. Hope you like the pattern. (I don’t usually write up patterns for others to use. So I hope you can understand the instructions.)

Basic Mug Cozy

Hook: 3.5mm

Wool: suitable for the hook

 

Pattern:

Ch46 sts.

In second ch from hook, hdc, and in remaining chs, hdc.

Ch2, Hdc across all sts for 12 rows.

13th Row: ch 17, hdc across.

Finish off.

I used the basic cozy and added different finishes to the basic base.

Cup Cozies

I have been making cup cozies for a while. I enjoy making these as they are not hard to make and I can do basically any design or colour I want to make.

So here are some of what I have done…and there are more on the way.

Perfect to keep your cup of coffee warmer for longer.

2018 temperature blanket

dav

This year for my temperature blanket, I am doing weekly blocks. This way it is easier to carry with me and I like making blocks. Also as there are 52 weeks in the year which won’t work for a blanket, I am going to add another 2 blocks for Easter and Christmas. That will be a perfect number to make a nice sized blanket.

I have 5 weeks done in the picture, a bit behind in weeks, and I am going to add a white boarder around each one. And I am going to use the join-as-you-go method.

I will post a picture of a completed block as soon as I have done one.

At the heart of it all

I finished a heart pixel blanket for my one sister’s birthday present. I really had fun making it, and the nice part of it all was that I only had to buy the white wool. It was a perfect design to use up all that odd colours which weren’t enough for any large project.

I am needing ideas for my next pixel blanket.

Until then….

 

The scrap blanket

I am making slow progress on my yo-yo blanket. It is pretty simple to make and uses such a little wool.

Pattern:

5ch, join to form a ring. 3ch, 15 dc into the ring. join to the top of ch3. Slip stitch the circles together as you work. I slst 4 rings together with 4dc between the slst.

 

 

Rock painting

I tried my hand at rock painting, and found that I like it. It’s very therapeutic and so much fun to paint the little rocks. I bought a 20kg bag of rocks from the garden shop and at the time thought 20kg was going to be too much. Now I’m thinking of buying another bag.
