Life has gotten in the way again :( First, I started couponing last month, and it has taken a while to get my binder organized and figure things out. Now that I have gotten into a groove, I think it will require less of my time :) You can follow my shopping adventures and discover many *awesome* FREEBIES on my new blog, Less with Lisa.
Also, I'm cyberschooling our daughter Emmalee again this year. First grade requires alot more of a time commitment than Kindergarten, but again, now that we are on a schedule, I should find more tome to craft. Of course I have so many hobbies, I have to divide time between them.
Last night, while catching up on my stories, I crocheted this lil cozy for my coffee cup.
It's a very simple pattern, that I kinda just made up :) Here is what I did if you want to give it a go:
G hook and medium weight yarn (I used Sugar 'n Cream Smokey Wine cotton yarn)
Chain 32 or whatever will fit snugly around YOUR cup. Join with a sl st to form a ring.
Row 1: Chain 2 and HDC in each chain around, joining with a sl st to top of beg chain 2.
Repeat Row 1, 5-7 times to reach desired height.
To add the ruffle:
Do 1 row of SC, joining with a sl st to first SC.
Ch 1, SC in same st, *Ch 3, sc in next st, repeat from * around. Join with sl
st to first SC. Finish off and weave in ends.
Have a great day :):):)
