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!
