Quick Knitted Gifts

I'm always trying to think of a quick gift to give to a friend or co-worker. I like to give something that has some aspect of thought to it and this coffee cup cozy fit the bill.

I used the Knit Coffee Cup Cozy pattern from Elizabeth Murphy of The Sitting Tree and some left over Brooklyn Tweed Shelter from my last project with US8 straight needles and a few leather buttons from my stash. This project is perfect for using leftover yarn.

You can use a paper cup or travel mug and then fill it with cookies, candy or a gift card. Anything goes. Put a bow on top and you are done. I think I'll make a few more.

I can't believe Christmas is only a few weeks away.
