FO: Winecozy
Hey everyone! I finished my Winecozy pattern from Knitty.com

This was knit as a gift for my best friend's husband, who actually makes his own wine. I used duplicate stitch to write "Vino" on the front, and braided the gray and purple yarn to make the tie at the top. Not my favorite, but hopefully it'll be a nice gift...

And I don't have a bottle of wine, so in the picture, it's actually got a skein of yarn inside of it. I'm sure it will look less lumpy while containing an actual glass bottle :D

It looks great, and I love the colors you chose! The lettering is amazing! I'm planning on knitting this same wine cozy for my sil who also makes her own wine. Did you knit it flat, as in the pattern, or in the round?
