Main Street - by Tin Can Knits

There are many cities in the world with coffee culture, but in the Pacific Northwest perpetually overcast skies and rainy days make our daily caffeine intake a ritualized necessity.

When I meet up with friends we inevitably end up at one of about a million coffee shops, laughing and sipping (and often knitting). This coffee cozy fits with the bohemian vibe of Main Street. It is a great project for using up odds and ends, and makes a cute gift for your coffee companions!
