Mug Cozy

In a bought of impulse buying, I ordered the KnitPicks Renaissance Sampler. I'm pretty happy with it so far. It was a real toss-up which sampler to get - since they come with patterns to test out the yarn, it was a choice not only between a color scheme but what to make with them - and the Renaissance Sampler won out mainly because of this cozy. (Sorry if this picture induces vertigo. I was trying to take an interesting angle, and I may have succeeded too well.) I liked this pattern and the yarn, Main Line, although cabling with it hurt my hands a little.

Your cozy looks great! The photo isn't inducing vertigo but it is making me sweat. The thought of hot beverage in this heat...ick!

sorry i'm way late, but: i really like this! i enjoyed knitting with Main Line, too, i believe, although i think i found it to be a bit...oily? after a while. i can't remember exactly what, but there was definitely a weird sheen that made my hands feel funny.

pretty cabling, even though unfortunately it was painful for you. =\ glad to see you posting again!! :) xo
