Presenting the French Press Cozy
It is finally here! I have had request for this through a Business Ideas thread in Etsy, through my own personal use, and from a poll here, but it took me awhile to get it right. This project was started about three different times, yes that's right, three times.
Now you might not think it would be so difficult to gauge out a SQUARE, but for some reason I struggled. The first two times I got at least four to six inches into the project because I was doing some lovely patterns, and it was with the Bright FairyTale yarn that you see throughout my shop. Then I decided to sell some of that lovely yarn in a skein so I started with this hand spun blue and white wool, which is wonderfully warm. With this yarn it only took one try and it began to come together.
I love the look of this cozy because it is intricate, yet simplistic and could really go with any style home. Also this wool is very thick and the the cozy covers the length of the press which will keep the coffee nice and hot. Also I think people will appreciate the window by the handle where you can see if your coffee is brewed to your liking.
Thoughts? What else would you like to see in these cozies? Ideas? Thanks for stopping in!
