Crazy About the Coffee Cozy

I don't have that many vices, but I am well known as a coffee fiend. I really find this funny, since I usually only drink one latte a day. O.K., it's a triple venti, but I nurse that baby along! When you are slowly sipping from a rather large cup, it tends to get a little cold. The solution? A coffee cup cozy! I knitted one for my coffee swap partner (here it is in action!). I found the pattern here. A picture of her finished product. I knit it a bit longer than the original pattern, because I tend to drink larger cups of coffee.

As I was catching up on my blog reading the other week, I came across this version created by MK Carroll. Go look! Isn't it great? It may take me a while, but I'm definitely going to have to knit the French press version. You've probably seen some of MK's patterns online. She's the genius behind sushi for the bathroom, this little beauty that I crocheted for my mom, and she was published in SNB Nation (Head Huggers, Mobile Monsters)/SNB Crochet (Ladylike Lace Gloves).

You crack me up!!! Ignore that MS3 baby but knit a coffee cup cozy! HILARIOUS! And I must say I will back you up all the way about sort of, well putting off Miss Mystery! :) (I did finish clue 1 last night and feel like Queen of the World, geez).

Very cute cozy----

LOVE the cup o'joe cozy...usually I'm not one for the cozy thing.
Thank you for the information on the potato puffs and name of the restaurant in Berkeley. I completely spaced on the name and couldn't read the name on any of my photos. Loved that day, though. Very fun to know that someone has been there and saw my photo on blogland.

Very nice job on the cozy! Alas, I am also addicted to coffee. I love having it as part of my day.

If you're not a knitter, you can do what I do. I use a Koffee Kozee on my French press. It really holds in the heat! http://www.koffeekompanions.com
