mug cozy
I gave a pair of these (with the mugs) as a gift (even though I wanted to keep them for myself).

I would have been tempted to keep those too! What kind of yarn did you use?

Silk. I can't tell you a brand, because I knit them from a sweater from Good Will that I unraveled. So all I know is that it was silk from China. The mugs were from Good Will, too. I like to recycle, what can I say? The cost of materials was about $3 (I used that sweater yarn for a pair of fingerless gloves, too).

BTW, that yarn has a beautiful sheen to it that I didn't capture in the photo.

Wonderful gift idea! I love the fact that it's recycled. Nice work.

Great job! Aren't they fun to make? I made some as gifts too, and really want to make one for myself one of these days!

I love how you recycle the sweaters into something new! I should start doing that - one way to build the stash without DH finding another bag of yarn!

What beautiful yarn! That pattern is one of my favorites! I made two of them for Christmas gifts, and they were much-appreciated.
