Coffee cup sleeve

I saw this very cute gift idea just weeks before Christmas on Amys Notebook and with lots of gal friends being the coffee lovers they are I thought what a great little gift for them.

The pattern is from Canadian Living and was very easy to do. It took me about 3 sleeves before I could make them look really nice in about 1 hour. I think that one of the learning curves was purling since I have only ever straight knit before (please remember readers I only started knitting early this fall).

I can't wait to see the gals using their cute little sleeves to keep their second cup java's warm!!

Check out rocks in my dryer for more cool ideas

Those turned out soooo cute! I was planning to make one to match a cowl I made for my mother-in-law (I will post the pattern next week), but her cowl took the whole skein of yarn :( I just love your color choices!! So cute!
