I gave the handmade coffee cozies to the baristas at my local coffee haunt and they were a big hit! I wasn’t asking for anything in return, but I did get a hug, free coffee and interest in my knitting group. Free coffee is always great, but awww shucks, the hug made my day! 🙂
On Sunday I made 2 additional cozies. I knit a cozy with the same mock cable design in a different colorway of Gedifra Volata Tweed. I will definitely write up the instructions sometime and offer it for free on my blog and on Ravelry.
I kind of went overboard with embroidery on the second cozy. I embroidered 3 flowers total with some vines and a leaf. Thank you, YouTube, for the refresher course on embroidered flowers!
Oh BTW, we got our digital powershot camera back from Canon and it works! So if you have a Canon and it’s taking distorted pictures, you may be able to get it fixed for free. See details here on Canon’s website. Now that we have a functional camera again, I have to uphold my end of the bargain and learn how to use it properly.
