Mason Jar Travel Cozy
My morning routine includes making some coffee in my quart sized IKEA French press, transferring it all to my big quart sized wide mouth mason jar, and taking it with me to drink at work. This worked great in the summer! But as soon as it started getting cold outside my coffee would be cold by the time I got to work. As a knitter I knew a quick knit travel cozy would do the trick, and now I’m drinking piping hot coffee despite my 25 minute walk to the office.
I added an A for Allyson to my Cozy using the Serif Uppercase Chart in the book Knitted Letters by Catherine Hirst and Erssie Major. Add your initials, some knit or crocheted flowers, a few buttons, some duplicate stitch embroidery, or just leave it plain. Whatever you do I know your morning beverage will be traveling in style!
