Today’s View – Robin’s Egg Cozy Cup Sweater

1a
Hi Friends,

Last night I had fun crocheting this cozy cup sweater for my shop. Isn’t that a scrumptious color?!

I used “Sheep(ish)” yarn again by Vickie Howell in the beautiful shade of “Robin Egg(ish)”. If you missed my post last week highlighting the Autumn Sweater Drink Cozy in “Pumpkin(ish)”, here’s the low-down:
I buy this yarn at my local Joann store. It is a medium weight, roving yarn made of 70% acrylic and 30% wool and it feels amazing! All the colors in this line are vibrant with a lovely sheen to them. The care instructions are “machine wash cold, gentle cycle; dry flat.”

I decided to do a ruffle at the bottom and I think I like it better than the straight design I used earlier.

I am also crocheting up an order today and finishing up some boot cuffs and fingerless gloves this week. What creative goodies are you currently working on?

Joyfully,

Jackie

Today’s WIP – Autumn Sweater Drink Cozy

Hi Friends!

This was a small WIP (work in progress) that I finished today – an Autumn Sweater Drink Cozy.   These cozies are great for cold or hot drinks.  They are especially nice for keeping your hands from burning when sipping on your yummy coffee or hot tea of choice.  And it’s always nice to feel like you are hugging a sweater instead of a paper cup.  🙂  I may make the next one a little shorter than this so it will fit the smaller coffee cup size as well.

I used “Sheep(ish)” yarn by Vickie Howell in the beautiful shade of “Pumpkin(ish)”. I buy this yarn at my local Joann store. It is a medium weight, roving yarn made of 70% acrylic and 30% wool and it feels amazing! All the colors in this line are vibrant with a lovely sheen to them. The care instructions are “machine wash cold, gentle cycle; dry flat.”

I would like to take a better picture in natural light for my Etsy listing, although I’m using it for now.

Happy Autumn all!

Jackie

Would you like a cup of crochet?

I am working on another crochet brooch in my English Rose line this week.  I love the beautiful “Robin Egg(ish)” colored “Sheep(ish)” yarn by Vickie Howell for Caron.  I think I will finish it with a pretty vanilla cream colored leaf.  Don’t you just love crochet & crafting?!  What are you working on?
