On Sunday, I decided to make the Tiny Tags Mug Hug, from the book Mug Hugs. I loved making the hug, and the end result was fab (all revealed on Sunday!). My Mum loved it as well, and wondereded if I could make her one for the cafetiere (or French Press as I believe it is known in the US). I quickly accepted the challenenge and headed to the book Coffee Cozies, which is a book by the same company who made Mug Hugs. I thought they might have made a Coffee version, but alas they did not.There was only one thing I could do, and that is to make my own!
I decided to use Sugar N' Cream Stripes: Pinky, which is an Aran/Worsted weight yarn. It took me a while to work out the pattern, but I think I have it down now. I've changed it quite a bit, such as on each tag row, there are meant to be just 6 tags, but I have made it so that Tag Row 1 there is 6 tags and Tag Row 2, there are 7 tags. I've also made it so behind each tag is stocking stitch.
Once I finish the Cozy, which will probably be next week, I'll make a PDF of the pattern so you can all give it a go, as it is a lot of fun to knit!
I haven't had chance to work on my Shawl since last week, so nothing new to show you on that. But I really should get cracking on it, as I need to wear it this Saturday!
I do have another Mug Hug on the needles for my Year of Projects but you don't get to see that until Sunday!
In Showbiz news, singer Pink has taken up knitting! That is a sentence I thought I would never hear!
