my friend loves her french press. a lot. she brings it to work with her and everything. i figured a french press cozy would be a good present for her (although she drinks so much coffee i'm not sure she leaves any in the french press for a cozy to keep warm).

i made up my own design because i didn't find any patterns that struck my fancy.


the eyes look a little googly in the first picture - it makes me laugh.

here's an up close of one of the owl cables:


it has an owl cable on each side, and three regular cables evenly spaced between. it holds on with three braided ties. the first picture is more accurate color-wise.

if for any reason you want to read more or see extra pics, the blog post is here : http://wistfulplying.blogspot.com/2011/02/anissas-french-press-cozy-because.html

hope you like it!

I love stuff decorated with owl cables. So CUTE!

And, I like the idea of a french press cozy. I may have to haul off and crochet or knit or sew or otherwise one of those for my husband and I so we will use our french presses more often.
