Why I Didn’t Get Another Stitch Pattern Knitted This Week.

Well…..it happened again. Just like last week (this post), I didn’t get a Stitch Pattern block started (I might be a bad KAL host….). BUT. I did get knitting done! The above photo is the mug cozy I knit while participating in Simply Notable’s Knitting in the Round on 2 Circulars Challenge. This project was the perfect little break I needed from the 3 HUGE projects I have in the works currently. Plus, I picked up some knitting/finishing tips along the way (win. win.).

I made one tiny mistake. The photo above shows the self-striping yarn I had chosen to knit the cozy out of. Isn’t it beautiful? The only problem was, the color change repeats were so large, I ended up with a GRAY mug cozy. What to do? I’ve always wanted to play around with embroidery on knitting. That plain, gray mug cozy made the perfect place to start! I may need to add embroidery more often!

How are your projects coming along?

Happy knitting!
