A GIFT YOU CAN MAKE WHILE WATCHING A CHRISTMAS MOVIE

Christmas is in five days and you may want to panic and whip out the credit card. Don’t! I have a gift you can make during a movie, (leave a light on)…

A COFFEE CUP COZIE!

You have heard of tea cozies that you put around a teapot. This is the same idea. You can crochet, knit or quilt one. It works as a gift for both men and women to keep their hot drinks hot.  I chose to knit mine.

I put 12 stitches on my needle and knitted until it would wrap around my largest coffee cup.  After I cast it off of the needle, I sewed a small strip of Velcro, (the hook side), on one end. You wrap it around the cup, going through the handle and Velcro it at the back. It is like a warm sweater for your coffee cup.

Warning: I made these for birthday gifts for two of my male friends. They had barely gotten them out of the bag before their wives stole them. I promised to make them more for Christmas. It is a good idea to give these in pairs!
