(Nearly) Instant Gratification

With the completion of the mittens for my mother-in-law, my Christmas knitting is finished.  To celebrate, I'm knitting for myself.

I knit a coffee cup sleeve to use at work.  I sometimes drink cocoa here, and the paper cups they have for hot drinks are so thin that I have to use two to keep from burning my fingers.

Now I don't!  This was knit from scrap yarn I had leftover from another project.  It was ridiculously fast to knit, and I think I'll use it a lot.

It even makes diet cocoa look cozy.


  1. Hooray on completing the Christmas knitting - with several days to go! I am (as always) SO impressed with you! I love the coffee cup sleeve, too. Such ingenuity!


  2. I am so happy you've found your end in knitting for others--for me, I have four projects still on the hooks--ALL for hubby. I'm hoping to finish the hat at least! I love the coffee cozy thingy, too! It's the little things, isn't it?
