a cozy for my coffee cups
Wow, it sure has been a long time since I have posted a project. I just haven't made anything in a while. There have been a few projects that I have started on, then stopped for one reason or another.
Anyway!! I am sick, so I made a cup of tea. I microwaved the water and when I started to bring the tea upstairs with me, I burnt my hands. I know, you are saying, 'That is what the handle is for.' You obviously don't know me too well!! haha My hands shake, especially when I am sick, and ESPECIALLY when I am carrying something that cannot be dropped, going up the stairs. So I have to carry everything with two hands if it has some weight to it and is spillable.
SO!! I came up with a brilliant idea and made a cozy for my coffee cups. They slide on and off very easily since they are stretchy.
Here is a pic:

I used Red Heart ww yarn in Coffee and Light Raspberry.
The pattern is simple:
Slip stitch into first chain making sure the chains are straight, creating a round.
Sc in each chain across. Slip stitch in first sc to create a round.
Cut yarn and with second color chain 2 in first sc. Dc around and cut off yarn.
Repeat until you have a total of 6 rows.
At the end of the last row, slip stitch to create a round.
When you are done, weave in any ends you may have.
