Coffee Cozies ~~
Last week my 19 year old daughter got a new car... well, a used new car, but her first car that she bought on her own, complete with a small car payment. Of course she had to take me for a ride as she is very proud. It is a Saturn in a very pretty blue.
We stopped at the local quickie store and bought a cup of coffee and went on our way to enjoy a ride in the country on a sunny but cold day. Her car is great, but really, the cup holders in this particular model are not coffee-to-go friendly, so I had to hold my coffee the entire way. I never really understood the need for a coffee cozy until that day. The cup gets hot and it is very hard to enjoy your java when your fingers are hot!
So, when we got home, I knit this coffee cozy from 100% wool and put it through the felting process. I chose a pretty blue that matches her car as our ride was the inspiration for this creation. It came out to be a perfect fit and I have more to come.. in styles fit for guys and gals, so be on the look out for more.
Of course, if you would like one in a particular color or design, just contact me through etsy or artfire and I will be happy to make one just for you!
