Ha! When he first saw that commercial, DH turned to me and said, "That's YOU!" I told him, "Nope, I've never made a cozy for anything!"

I'm not one for making cozies either. Maybe for a coffee cup like you get at Starbucks, but things like phone cozies seem silly. I'd never get to my phone in time to answer it.

I don't have a phone cozie and I still can't get to my phone time enough to answer it.

I thought about a phone case that I could hang around my neck but the phone I have now is too heavy to wear that way. I agree that most cozy type knits seem a bit silly. Better to use those bits of yarn and make a colorful hat or mittens to keep someone's head or hands cozy, someone who can't make or buy their own.

ETA Learning how to answer this silly smarter-than-I-am phone was bad enough w/o a cozy. I've started to think my phone is so smart, it's stupid.

I'll admit it's a little silly
and I didn't knit it. It's a repurposed sock It's been sitting in DH's office for a couple of years now.
