So, My entry for the ironic cozy challenge is rather mundane compared to a few I have seen entered, thus far, but mine should get points for cutesy! =)

My poor optical mouse is so old, the finish is worn off where my hands rest, and it was looking cold. After all, 6 years is a long time for a mouse to be alive.
So, we have a mouse cozy that looks like a... Mouse!



Of course, my pencil jar didn't take too kindly to being left out in the cold, all the attention lavished on a rodent! I was able to whip up a pencil jar cozy in a matter of minutes...



Now they have made peace on my desk. Here they are together:





Both are crocheted, then embellished.

The mouse is cute enough by itself, but the cat pencil can really brings it together.  Great job!

Yep, I can still use the mouse. I made a small opening for the scrolly thingy, so it's quite functional. The bottom is open, so the optics still work, too.
