FO - Flirtation Cozy
I completed this a few weeks ago but only now posted because it was part of a swap I was involved with, and I didn't want to spoil the surprise for my partner.

This is the Flirtation Cozy. The pattern is free and located here.

I used Patons SWS. The color is Natural Snow.

A note about the yarn...

While it turns into a lovely project, I found it scratchy to knit with, which surprised me given how much I've enjoyed touching it in the store. The yarn is fluffy, which makes doing cable work challenging. I usually do not use a cable needle; however, I had to with this project.

Regardless, the pattern is lovely, and I know it turned out so well because of the yarn.

I test-drove it on one of my mugs before sending it off (the mug cried as I undressed it).

Very pretty! I should knit one of these for my mother, she has tea or coffee every day and often complains that the mugs get too hot.
