|My cold, bare mug was just crying out for one of these....|
So after having a little moan on Twitter that I needed one of these, but couldn't knit or crochet, one of my Twitter buddies @MrsDG (aka Kelli) who also blogs here, offered to make me one!
After giving her my favourite mug's vital statistics, Kelli let me choose the wool and she knitted me this fabulous mug cosy -
AND she added a pretty pink flower to the front which just finishes it of beautifully!
As a little thank you to Kelli, I made her a shabby rose brooch -
These are the kinds of thing I'll be making at the workshop I'm running next week, and I'll also make a few more to put in my Folksy shop.
There are all kinds of craft swaps going on at the moment, crochet for sewing, cross-stitch for embroidery, you name it, people are willing to swap something for it! I love it, I just wish I'd thought of doing my Christmas 'shopping' this way!
