Aaaahhhhhhhhhh....coffee



Need I say more?

I used up some cashmerino aran for this little coffee sleeve. (Catherine the idea is not origional...and the pattern is not mine...and would Tim Hortons really want to sell knit sleeves for their cups?)

I could say a little less...



They aren't paying me to advertise...if that was an option I will do it for free coffee, but it must be delivered!


In other knitting news...
Thanks to Ashely who gave me the "you make my day award"! It's so nice to know people are still reading my blog...I know I disappeared for a while....and don't have time to knit and blog like I used to. I am just starting to get back into it...hang in there;)
So, I will pass on the award...of course to many who have already received it...so many make MY day. These people are serious knitters who's blogs are a must read for me (in no particular order)
1. Jared over at brooklyntweed. You know why if you have ever been on his blog.
2. Laura over at cosmicpluto. She knits some beautiful sweaters.
3. Kirsten over at throughtheloops. A fabulous knitter and her photos really capture her hand knits in action.
4. Franklin over at panopticon. He is hilarious! I recently discovered his blog...it's a must read!
5. Julie at littlecottonrabbits. Go check out the gorgeous little creatures she knits! I don't remember how I stumbled upon her blog, but I am glad I did.
There are so many others...I could sit here all day listing them...but I have some knitting to do!

Somehow when I saw the mug cozies in Interweave, they didn't impress me, but seeing yours the other day made me think again. Even more so this coffee sleeve, and I'm thinking both are a great way to bust some of that stash, especially the little leftovers.

I have never thought about a mug cozy as a serious project before seeing yours! I am in love! :) Oh, and you deserve that award!

I love that the second photo shows the "Respect the Environment" message!

Love the cozy. It would make a cute wristwarmer, too.
I gave you the "You Make My Day" Award, too, but failed to tell you. I'm sorry about that, but I'm glad someone else did the proper follow through. (Check the Jan. 28 entry on my blog if you want to see.)
So you've won twice, at least. While on the subject of how much I like your blog, I'll also tell you that it pleases me to see your projects being noticed on Ravelry!

NICE, NICE THIS IS A GREAT START.
PLEASE SEND ME A FEW AND I WILL START THE TREND HERE FOR YOU IN TORONTO.

MAYBE YOU SHOULD START THE SUMMER COLOURS AND PREPARE FOR ORDERS? I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE MINE WITH A LITTLE BEADING...

A LITTLE TIMMY'S BLING PLEASE.
YOU ARE THE BEST. ARE YOU COMING FOR MARCH BREAK.... THE CASINO HAS BEEN CALLING.

Thank you so much for the award! It is very sweet of you.

As I drink my tepid coffee here, I'm thinking that I may need to knit a coffee cozy or two myself!

Oooh I love the coffee sleeve! Such a great idea and a perfect gift that even works with my insanely slow knitting! Striping the mug warmer to use scrap yarn was brilliant. Thanks for all the great inspiration
