Many Cosy Mugs

So, I have just finished my five mug cozies, which I will be giving to friends for Christmas! I'm really pleased with the outcome and I love the colours.

Buttons!

I've got a different colours for each friend, although I haven't decided who will receive which colour yet. I went out earlier and bought buttons for the remaining four cozies and I think they look fab, so I'm really happy with the outcome. I've made a rough estimate that each cozy has cost me about £1 to make, which is awesome!

I love this yarn. I would recommend Sirdar Crofter DK to anyone. It's just beautiful to work with, and as you can see, has some really cool results when it comes to marbling and patterns.

So now I need to find something else to make with Crofter! So many possibilities, and I'm sure I'll come up with something. However, right now I have a new project to begin, and really need to finish a couple of old ones. The dilemma of which to start first though - new project needs making by Christmas, old project can wait but is taking up space in my room...decisions decisions...
