  • The Best Cozies and Coasters for Your Morning Cup

     

    Hey craft family!

    Everyone loves their morning Cup O' Jo, and that term applies to tea drinkers too, or really any hot drink. The one thing we can all agree on, no matter what we are drinking, is that we hate it when our fingertips get stung by the scalding hot temperature of our cup after a few minutes. Or when you set your cup down on that glossy end table, and put a permanent cloudy ring through the first few layers. Which is why this week, we're talking about cozies and coasters, your drink's best friend! Here is our list of some of our favorites.

     

    Cozy Cozies

    You can get creative with the ways you keep your coffee warm, like these nature cozies up above, or animal friendly cozies down below! What matters is how much fun you have making it. Most patterns show a basic background, with attachments added to them after the cuff is made. So, these patterns are an easy weekend project that you can just keep adding to whenever you feel like it.

    These patterns are sure to make you unique when you're out and about on the town, and you get to brag about your crochet skills when people stop you and ask where you bought it from!

  • Jack-O-Lantern Dishcloth

    I love Halloween. It is my favorite holiday. I love all the decorations. I like to drive around and look at everyone else’s decorated yards. I leave my decorations up until the day after Day of the Dead. I was looking for something quick and easy project to do. Something that I can work on in and out of the car this week while waiting in the carpool line at school or while waiting on after school activities. I went through all of my Leisure Art Books and found this cute Jack-O-Lantern Pumpkin dishcloth in a book called A Dishcloth a Month.

    I was just finishing tucking in all my ends when my friend asked me if it was a new coaster for our table at the new knit shop. I said I had not planned on it but why not. It is slightly big for a coaster but it is really cute idea for decorating a table. So I am in the process of making a few more for our knit/crochet table. I am even going to crochet some without the Jack-O-Lantern face. You just follow the pattern and as if you had changed your color from orange to black. My favorite part I will only have four ends to run in or tuck in. Whichever way you want say it. You can even use brown for the stem instead of the green. Since it is fall I can keep the ones without faces through Thanksgiving. It’s a win! Win! I hope that you have had as much fun with this Jack-O-Lantern pattern as I have. I used 100% cotton. I am going to check and see if Sugar n Cream has a variegated fall colored yarn for some of my solid pumpkins. I think that would be really cute.
