I am so excited about this little thing.
I had first seen red and white knitted mug warmers at a big bookstore before Christmas, they were adorable, but I didn't get one. Then, I saw one on a knitting site recently, which was also very cute, with a cable knitted on it in chunky yarn. Then, this afternoon, I was blog-surfing and came on this blog here,
aha, I found it:
mug warmer by house wren studio
which has a lot of stuff on recycled wool felt. It showed on in a photo, somewhere that I can't locate now, where it was just simply cut out of a recycled sweater!! Of course! This had sort of been in the back of my mind these last couple of days while I've been on a bit of a sweater groove. So I immediately jumped out of my chair, and found the leftovers from my felted aran wool computer bag and made one. You can see I just did some easy crocheting with pink around the edges and a chain stitch to make button loops. Then I had to make a new pot of coffee in order to test it out.
If you explore around on her blog ( I love it) you will also find photos of take-out cup warmers too!, as well as other great stuff,
