Warm and Cozy Monday

Weather getting colder where you are? How about a soft and wooly coffee cozy to help warm you up this morning?



This coffee cozy was knit by Teresa using leftovers from a skein of FF Lightweight Superwash Merino Wool Sock Yarn in the Lust colorway. I love seeing projects that make good use of those extra bits of yarn!

Here's another photo where you can see a bit more of the lovely cabled detail:



Teresa knit this using the Cabled Coffee Cuff pattern by Pixley Knits, available as a free pattern download on Ravelry.

You can see more Teresa's lovely work on Ravelry (she's needlenhook), where she has posted an impressive array of projects! You can also visit her Etsy shop, where she has some of her own patterns available, along side knitted items.

While I'm on the topic of FO's, I realize that I haven't yet posted photos of the first sock pattern from my current sock club. The first one is my own design, knit with my Merino/Tencel Sock Yarn. The gauge for that yarn is pretty much the same as my new Tight Twist Superwash Merino Sock Yarn, so that could be substituted as well.



I called them "Girl's Best Friend Socks" and the pattern is now available in my shop.



Everyone have a great Monday!
