Kristen TenDyke - Valentine Mug Cozy

  Valentine Mug Cozy  
  Valentine's Day is fast approaching, and every year I wrack my brain trying to think of something heartfelt to give my loved ones. This year has been no exception. I feel that a lot of love goes into my knitting; whether I'm making a sweater, scarf, or even a small project—it's made with love. Because February 14th is not very far away, and most of my free time is being spent tech editing or writing patterns, I decided that it had to be a small project.

Then it came to me—my boyfriend has been drinking lots and lots of tea. Sometimes the same mug full of tea sits and sits until it's room temperature, but he still drinks it, warm or cold. Knitting tends to keep things warm, right? So what could be better than a mug cozy for Valentine's Day? After all, that day is for being cozy, isn't it?
