So, in my attempt to make Christmas presents this year, I've been a bit preoccupied with stuff that I want to make for myself. Turns out, I won. I also live in Montana, so it's a bit chilly here. Smiley
First is a calorimetry. I've wanted to make one for a while and just haven't, so I finally sat down and did it. It's made from a super soft alpaca. I love that it covers my ears too. I found the pattern here: http://homegrownrose.typepad.com/reclaimingthehome/2008/07/the-one-hundredth-in-which-she-shares-a-crochet-calorimetry-pattern.html





I've also been envious of all the amazing cowls. I had some wonderful soft Wool-Ease laying around, so I decided to try it as well. I love how it'll fit perfectly under my coat! I got this pattern here: http://simplebeans.blogspot.com/2009/02/crochet-cowl-pattern.html 
It was super easy and worked up REALLY quick.





Next is actually Christmas presents. Oh, but I am keeping one myself. Does anyone else have the problem of giving their stuff away?! haha
I wanted to make coffee cozies for some of my sister-in-law's, so I thought it would be fun to make them and give them with some Starbucks gift cards. I also wanted them to be used with coffee mugs as well. I just made the pattern up myself with some simple stitches and some fun buttons. Smiley





Thanks for looking!
Comments and criticisms are welcome!!! Smiley

The cowl is lovely, i've made one but its not quite right I might have to give that one a go instead.

Thanks!
I thought the cowl was one of the easiest projects I've made.
And I saw that blanket in Crochet Today, it's beautiful! I wouldn't be able to part with it either! haha
