Just thought I'd share some finished stuff, I'm rather proud of all of this. :)
This square-ish shape of half double crochet turned into...
....and this knitting start became....
A Coffee Mug Cozy!
I need to find a better way to attach the button closure, but I was kind of winging it since I didn't write out the pattern at all. I also made some more travel/disposable cup cozies. Those are wicked easy to make, and I can make one in about an hour or less. Oh! That reminds me! I was at Pier 1 today (buying the white mug!) and one of the guys that works there got to talking to me, he's a potter and has been wanting to make the travel/throw away style mugs/cups but didn't want to add a handle....well, I gave him my Ravelry info (he asked for a business card but I don't have those, Rav was the next best thing....) so that he can look at my work and see if maybe he would buy some of my travel-size cozies to put with the ones he makes. How cool is that? I hope he contacts me, I just think it would be fun. And, if I use Red Heart (I hate it, but it is cheap....and holds up.) then if I sold them at just a $1 a piece, after the second sold, everything would be profit. Gotta start somewhere, right?
