That's the important part of this post. Here is a less important one:
Pattern: Mug and French Press Jacket by MK Carroll
Yarn: Berroco Vintage in Smoke
Needles: US 7 or 8 (they are really more of a 7.5)
This is just silly, really. I wanted to use up some leftover yarn and the Harry Potter Knitting and Crochet House Cup Quidditch challenge was to knit or crochet either food or food cozies. I had fallen in love with the pattern photo of this cozy just days before, so I knit it.
The pattern I used was really, really terrible, but it has been updated and looks miles better than it did. The cozy itself still doesn't look quite right to me, but it's a flippin' mug cozy! I'm not going to get too cerebral about it. I wish it had used a bit more yarn because now I might be compelled to knit another one, but I will spare you a post about it, I promise.
I'm going to try to finish Falling next week because I've got a really big sample knit coming next week and I need to finish a lot of my own knits. I hope I'll be able to do a little introduction to the book I'll be knitting from. I've been in love with it for a couple months now and finally get to knit from it!
In other news, John took this photo of the bunnies today while he was rearranging the living room. I would tell you what we think actually happened, but it would ruin what looks like a lot of bunny love. :D
For more FO Friday posts, go to Tami's Amis! Oh! And since I'll be studying pretty much all weekend (with a bit of cake-baking thrown in), I'm dying to know what you guys have planned for the weekend. I have to live vicariously, you know.
