So I have one more special giveaway this year! I did a little planning and brought back a little something special from South Africa for you. Here in the Northern Hemisphere it’s been getting a little chilly. I know for my Southern Hemisphere friends who are battling the heat it’s hard to imagine the opposite weather. It hasn’t been overly cold here in Texas but the sparse chilly days are gearing us up for the colder weather ahead. So up for grabs I have a mug, a knitted cozy, and a box of rooibos tea…straight from Africa!
To enter, simply leave a comment stating your favorite way of warming up during the cold winter months. Giveaway ends one week from today on December 11th. I’ll pick a winner at 9 PM CST.
If you want to make your own mug cozy, here’s the simple pattern I like to use.
Size 7 needles
Size 7 double pointed needles
Worsted or Aran yarn
CO 40 sts.
*k2, p2* for 2.5 in. or desired width
BO in same ribbing
Using dpn’s, CO 2 sts.
Work in i-cord for 2 in.
Weave in ends
Sew on i-cord
Sew on button
*I chose on the above cozy to skip the i-cord and sew on 3 buttons. You can make it to your liking!
