It’s been a while since I posted on Blue Crocus. I’ve been busy trying to finish a sweater for myself…I’m about there…truthfully, I’ve got a lot of knitting still ahead of me.
In the meantime, I took a cables class at my local yarn shop, Wool for Ewe. I have always been in awe of those who can knit cables, so when the class was first advertized at Wool for Ewe, I was the first to sign up.
Our project was a coffee cozy to fit a french press pot. It wasn’t as hard as I thought and I’ve purchased some supplies to make a hot water bottle cover…which is a little more difficult, but I’m up for the challenge.
This is what the cozy looks like. It’s a little taller than my own french press so I folded it down at the top for it to fit and tied it up with ribbon.
I just love it. I’m giving it to a friend for Christmas — don’t worry — I’ve got plenty of yarn to make another one.
Have you ever been scared of doing something/learning something new?
I know from experience that if I stop myself from trying/learning something new, I miss out on so much. How about you?
