Yes, blocking. When it comes to knitting it isn't often that I have to block my items, but this week changed that. I learned that making smaller items requires more blocking, but that is okay cause they are super cute.
Pinned to my cork blocking board here we have a mug cozy - inspired by my coffee getting cold at the office. I knit this in a weave type pattern with wool that I dyed and spun. This is actually the very last little bit of this yarn. It fits a standard mug.
Also we have these lovely recycled silk coasters. They are such a great way to incorporate a little burst of color to a room and a great conversation starter to promote handmade from around the world (the silk is spun in the Himalayan mountains).
Last but not least, this snuggly To-Go Cup sleeve. This is made from hand spun wool that is such a dark green it almost looks black - it is really thick and fuzzy.
So what do you think? Which do you like the most? Please share, and don't forget to vote on this week's poll!
