Now that Christmas is gone, I can show all the gifts I made but hesitated to blog about in the fear the recipient might read about it here! Nick's slippers were the first one, and here's the wine cozy.
It was a gift for my sister's husband, accompanied by a bottle of German organic white wine. He seemed to like it!
Pattern: Knitty's Wine Cozy
Needles: 4mm dpns
Yarn: Kilcarra Aran Tweed
Mods: knit in the round
I liked this knit, it was quick and fun, and simple enough. The yarn was a surprise to me, I had bought this one ball in Ireland way back just to give it a try. Now I did, liked it a lot - and don't live in Ireland anymore! Bummer. Must see if I can get one of my Irish friends send me some over!
