Are you cozy?

Here is what I've been up to the last few days

This is the Garter Mug Cozy from Interweave Knits Holiday Gifts magazine.

Bottom view:

I had to take this pattern and add many more increases (the pattern tells you how to make this customized to the size mug you own). I am planning on getting some eyelash yarn to jazz this up a bit for my friend who has a HUGE mug and is quite the pizazz princess.

I knit this with Lion Brand 100% Wool in the color Rose. The yarn is on the rough side but I didn't block it to see if it softens up. Double points size 7.

This is another version of the same cozy. I made this one for Popeye to go with his new navy blue mug. I used Paton's SWS yarn (70% Wool, 30% Soy) in the Natural Navy colorway. This yarn is VERY soft and was okay to work with. The twist leaves very easily, but it wasn't hard to work with.

I made these cozies for my friend who loves Starbucks. I found the pattern here while I was looking for something else. The original pattern makes the Grande size. I modified the pattern to make one for the Tall size. I plan to make the Venti size for myself. I used Noro Kureyon #188. (Double points size 7)

Oh, these are so cute! Filia has been looking for things to make from her stash, and this would be perfect.

Those are cool. I've been planning on making something like that for stainless steel water bottles for the boys. I thought it would keep the bottle from being too hot/cold and, if I make them in different colors, keep the That- One's- Mine- No- It's- Mine down to a minimum. ;)

Thanks.....I've been unmotivated today after knitting them but I do have 2 more I need to get done.
