Visiting an old love

Ahhhh. It started with not so much a kiss…but a mug

When I first started blogging and crocheting I made about fifty-five thousand mug cozies – maybe more. I LOVED them. The sad truth is that it was all I could make but I didn’t care. If you rummage around my house right now,  you’ll find cozies – or CupCapes as I called them – stashed just about everywhere a cozy should or shouldn’t be. So, naturally when I started to panic because the real project that I am trying working on is sitting in a corner waiting for a border and for my beautiful nanny to be well enough to sew them up for me on her machine, and it’s been soooo long since I’ve actually had an entry into the Made It challenge – I had no choice but to visit my old flame.

You see, these particular mugs had me at” HELLO there…”  No bulky love handles, double walled, slim & sexy. They were practically begging me.

How could I resist!

Using one of my favourite yarns – Vinnis Colours in Bambi – which is a cotton/bamboo blend, a 4.5mm hook and merrily stitched as I went, these babies were born & bred in minutes (ok, not minutes, hours. Sigh…)
