Knitted Mug Hug

I just love it when someone introduces me to an idea I have never come across before ….. I was so inspired last night that I sat knitting while watching The Apprentice, which as you know is sacrosanct!  It’s a Mug Hug!

…….. A little wrap around cosy for my mug (a definite too much time on my hands project!). It’s from this book – Knitted Mug Hugs!

I’ve used a red cotton type double knitting wool and size 8 needles for my hug and then embellished it with a large mother of pearl button to fasten it and small pearl heart shaped buttons on the main body.

I couldn’t believe it when I Googled the idea … I got so many wonderful results.

I love it when I get e-mails from followers and it’s even better when I get pictures too. Aren’t these soooooo cute, made by the super talented Megan (and her mum, Tracey). Me thinks I had better watch out!
