Knitted Mug Cozies

Knittingdaily is an excellent website for knitters and fiber artists. In a recent post, Garter Mug Cozies, a free download is available through April 24 if you sign up for their (free) mailing list. Believe me, you will want to be in this informational loop if you work with fibers.

I am knitting up one of these in green fingering weight wool and am almost finished after working on it for just over an hour. It is fun to watch the quick progress.

A quote taken from Garter Mug Cozies about this handy little coffee accessory:
I recently had to give up coffee. Completely. No decaf, no low-acid stuff, just cold turkey on that lovely, hot, rich, amazing beverage.

Can you hear my whimpering from where you are? So what does this have to do with knitting, you ask?

What if you could combine coffee, mugs, and knitting? What if every time you picked up your coffee mug, you were touching a lovely bit of knitted-up yarn as well?

Garter Mug Cozies, people. They're about knitting, and they're about mugs, and they're easy, and they're pretty, and they are extremely addictive. Plus, the pattern is free.

You've been warned.

Don't blame me if you end up knitting a gadzillion of these for all your friends, and then another badillion for your friends' friends.

Did I mention the pattern is free? Yup, free. But it's free for ONE MONTH ONLY! 30 days of freeness, that's all. As in, today's it's free, and through most of April it's free, and on Thursday, April 24, at 4:59 PM MST, the pattern is still free, and then POOF!—on Thursday, April 24, at 5:00 PM MST, the pattern is not free anymore.

Get it while your coffee's hot.

Now we MUST have a picture, and this looks much better than the stage where my green cozie currently resides. The red cozie pic is from the Knittingdaily website.

Get going!
