Snugglier coffee

Take one Ikea thermos cup…

And cover it in soft and fuzzy wool…

Excessively chunky! But should you be the kind of person who struggles to muster up a smile in the mornings I challenge you not feel chirpier having drunk your coffee from a furry rainbow :)

Rainbow pack of roving

I bought this pack of short, chunky yarns at Ally Pally, not last year the one before. And finally I feel inspired to use them! I think this roving stuff is for fibre arts and spinning, but it has a yarn-ish appearance so must be knitable :)

Being rainbowey ‘n all, the gay aspect is hard to avoid. So a gift for my girlfriend it is! Hopefully this will make a nice cozy for a coffee cup thermos…. might even have it sewn up before the weekend is out.

(I think I must have bought this from the Oliver Twists stall , which I’d like to add a link to here, but I can’t find a website for them. Anyway, if you know of them then let me know!)
