Fall has officially arrived and it’s warm drink time again. In honour of that I created a fuzzy reusable sleeve for the take out coffee cups. I love this colourful rainbow yarn. Each sleeve comes out looking different and beautiful and it is so soft on my hands.
I have been having a hard week, feeling exhausted and dizzy, so have not been able to do much. No writing and very little thinking for the past few days. Today I had to venture out to the grocery store so I stopped and bought a coffee as a special treat. This is the first time I have used my special new sleeve. I like how pretty it looks in the sun. You can make one too it is so simple.
There are 2 versions. First in rows and second working in a round. The one in the picture is worked in rows.
