Cup Cosies

I'm not one to brag.....

but I'm about to.

I'm not sure what happened to me yesterday, but I had some sort of creative surge.  As you may remember I am fairly new to the world of crochet, so new in fact that I can only do the basic chain stitch (although I am currently in the process of learning the 'Granny Square')

A while back I saw some knitted little mug warmers which I instantly fell in love with. I really wanted to have a go at making one but didn't have a clue where to start.  But yesterday whilst I was watching Ellen, Inspiration struck, right out of the blue. So before I had time to talk myself out of it, I grabbed a mug, my crochet hook, some wool and got started right away.

Now this is where the bragging comes into it. I had no pattern to follow or no example to look at, nope I just went with it and hoped that it would work......and surprisingly,

It did!

and the great thing is that they don't take long to make. I knocked these two up last night in a few hours! are you impressed?

OK, bragging over now, I'm off to attempt to make a tea cosy to go with my toastie little cup cosies...
