Thanks again for all the great comments!!

I was puzzling over closures - is there a reason for the button low on the cuff and not in the middle or the top?  Or for just one button and not two?

The cardboard cuff i traced for the pattern was slanted at the corners, so the button had to be set lower down so that there would be enough felt to close it, I know it looks a little weird, but velcro has never been my friend, so I'm stuck with buttons!

as for the cup-cuff, it's adorable! i'd never had guessed it;s been so long since you had crafted. does the felt insulate well? i always wondered what's the warmest craftable material would for those. and non-coffee drinkers like myself, you cant beat some peppermint hot cocoa in the snow, hot cider, or a soothing decaf tea!

I haven't had a chance to test it out yet, it's been too cold to leave the house to get a hot cocoa!! I'll let you know after I get a chance to do a trial run!

After carrying this around in my purse for a couple weeks I finally, yes finally, had a chance to test out my sleeve and I'm proud to say that it works wonderfully! It has just enough cushion to keep my fingers from burning and my hot chocolate warm. Grin

knitting is hot

I've waned to make some for my green coffee fanatic friends for a while but just haven't. The most coffee obsessed greenest friend's bday is next month, so maybe I'll do it soon. I love the design of yours and the stitching! Nice!
