Apple Cozies

Apple Cozies

My most recent finished objects were a set of 10 Apple Cozies (only 9 pictured, one was gifted early) for the staff at my children's daycare. I like to gift them with something special and unique, since they do such a good job taking care of our kids. These are a great stashbuster, I think they use around 30yards of DK weight yarn each! I knit them in cotton, soy, acrylic, corn and wool, and all came out pretty nicely. I thought I was sick of them, but I think I'm going to make one more for a friend - she shares my birthday on the 16th of this month, so I'm pressed for time.

I'm getting less knitting time in now that it's summer. I'm off twice a week with the kids, and trying to bike more, and my prime knitting time is on the bus to and from work. Still, I'm getting some things done. I'm working on a top for my brand new neice, nearing the end of my Aleita tank, and have my eye on some larger projects for myself. I just need more time!
