I've made a couple that fit around Starbucks cups for my friends, and the Patty for my own mug, but this time I need one for a birthday gift. My grandfather's birthday is one week from today, and boy is he a tough gift customer! He'd probably just as soon not get any gifts, but I feel like he needs "something." He's a big coffee drinker--not a 10-cup a day kind of fellow--but he enjoys his morning java. I found this pattern from Chronicle Books and have decided that he will have a cozy whether he wants one or not!
I'm try really hard to stashbust this year, so I'm using leftovers of a beautiful blue-green Berroco Peruvia yarn and size 9 Knit Lite needles. These needles are pretty fun, and sure do make it easier to knit in the dark!

Isn't it amazing the difference between bright indirect light and late afternoon outdoor light? Colors take on a totally different depth, or in some cases even seem to flatten. Special thanks to Anna for posting a great tutorial on how to make photos pop, and for being my first official Google Connect follower! Once I get a new version of Photoshop I'll really be cooking with gas.
