This should be in that "One Skein" book!
Yarn: Recycled 100% cotton (Not sure how much. The pattern calls for 150 yrds)
Needles: Size 2 Audi Turbo 36" (Done in Magic Loop)
To tell you the truth, this isn't my favorite magazine. There's usually 1, maybe 2 projects in each issue that I MIGHT, Someday maybe knit. I've actually been pondering making these glass cozies for a while, though. I really like the criss cross cable pattern. The first time I saw it, though, I though "Psh! Cozies! Who the heck wants to make a cozy for their glass?!" Me! I do! Well... I do now.
My little condo has air conditioning, and it has a washer/dryer closet, but it DOES NOT have a way for said drier to vent to the outside. Usually when I do laundry the house gets all warm and humid for a while because of all the laundry air we are breathing. This makes even the most remotely cool drink sweat and leave puddles. Yes, I have coasters, but it's amazing once an idea gets into your head, I began to notice that my glass was always sweating! At home... On Grandma's back porch... At the park. I began to think "Hmm, maybe I should knit a glass cozy. It's kind of like a portable coaster, and keeps your hands dry and the glass from slipping"
This is really a very nice little cozy. It stretches to fit any of the glasses in my house. It slides a bit on the glass when it's dry (maybe I should take out a repeat in there) but sticks like glue when the glass begins to sweat a bit. DH thinks I'm crazy, but then again he thinks socks are crazy too. What does he know...
