Title: Knitted Sock Monkey Cup Cozy (Now with link to pattern :D)
Post by: Sphinxy on March 30, 2009 04:59:11 PM
It's been ages since I've posted anything here... It's so good to be back :D And since I'm trying to redeem so bad feedback from my swaps I was checking for stuff to send to people on the FOC 2nd Chance Wishlist Swap... someone wanted a Sock Monkey Cup Cozy and after seeing the crocheted one she had on her wishlist, I figured I could come up with one of my own :D I did! :D And it's so pretty! :D So, I thought it would be a good thing to post here as a new beginning in Craftster :D

Here, have a look :D Let me know what you think...









ETA. Pattern is now available in my blog! :D Yay! http://www.thepurpleblug.com/2009/04/my-very-first-pattern-george.html

Oh thank you guys! :D I love him deeply, I still need to try it on a real coffee cup but Im hoping it will fit...

Prunes28, I think I have everything jot down if you want my notes for it... I could try to make a decent pattern for it, though the ears and the mouth were a really huge experiment :-p as they are crocheted...

And Lrschic, thanks!!! :D

Oh man I'm a coffee junkie and this is SO stinkin' cute. Course I'd probably get caught talking to my coffee mug and then my coworkers might think i'm a weirdo....

good job!

LOL nuttywoman, please do help!!! :-p I sort of finished but it doesn't seem quite right and there's a huge pile of junk in my terrace... and I still have to clean the rest of the house... :( :-p I promise i'll get the pattern done this week I just need to find a better way to make the mouth and ears, they are crocheted :-P and very very experimental...

Oh and Miss Ruby Cube, I talk to my coffee without the cozy :-p specially when is right in front of me, all steamy and mmmmm...mmmmm sexy...
