Little sweaters for your warm drinks~


There is a privacy about it which no other season gives you.... In spring, summer and fall people sort of have an open season on each other; only in the winter, in the country, can you have longer, quiet stretches when you can savor belonging to yourself. ~Ruth Stout
It was 0 F here yesterday..even our drinks need sweaters:)

Warm up your green teas,hot chocolates..with warm little sweaters cut from the sleeves of your old sweaters~Comfy.. cozy..country~

  1. Good morning Starshine.

    I love your hot drink cozy!
    And you're going to get chills when I tell you, I have a similar one, only it's made of jute twine.
    Do you recall a couple of year ago, when I went through a jute craze?

    I'm telling you, this is not mere coincidence anymore :)

  2. Hi Sol..Why can't I remember that exact post? I think I remember the jute:) But truthfully your posts have been works of art to me and one even lovelier than the next if possible:)When I see you have posted something..I get excited.

    I cannot find the heart anywhere on the web,I can't even find the company..I will keep a sharp eye..If ever I find one you will know:)

  5. It has been gruesome here too.. but it breaks today and for a few days... above 50º... yippee. The drink cosy is a great idea.. keeps cold things from chilling your hands and warm things stay warm longer.... my coffee is stone cold before I finish it!

  11. What a cute and clever drink cozy. I thought I would have to be able to knit, but what a fun idea to just cut off the sleeve of an old sweater.

    The muffin looks delicious with the warm drink too.

    Sorry to hear it was so cold. We have had a few gorgeous days in the 50s and it is like torture to know that cold will come back today or tomorrow!

  16. I've made those last year too Monique, I got the idea in a magazine, I made mine in wool in different colors, just for myself, others would think I had too much time on my hands!!!!

    Warmth,
    Ginette

  17. What a cute idea! The weather is turning cold, here, too. I think it is to get down to -20C

  18. Thank you!

    Ginette if I could knit I would have done so..good for you..
    I have time on my hands this year..I saw them in a magazine too:)

    Certainly not my idea.. but I loved them..

  20. so cute, these cozies...will also help protect against burning. I sometimes have my hot chocolate so hot that I can't touch it, but want to warm my hands around the cup.
    so good to visit here and catch up...

  22. I need a manly one for my J. His fingers get so cold I fear he must have had frost bite in the past.

    Happy, happy, day to you :-) Warmth and happiness!

  25. Bonne Fete Monique, I saw Jain's blog, and I get a sense of not good health. I hope that it's God that won't turn his back he never, never does he's good!

    I always felt going through your blog because I was new that you are in poor health, and I'm sorry to hear this.....God will bless you with a healthier year, and has already given you your family!
