Coffe Cup Cozy

I knit a coffee cup cozy as a gift for a friend of mine. I had leftover yarn from a scarf I had made for him, and I thought it'd be a good way to use it up. (And now he matches - oops!).

I was so pleased with myself, because I made the button hole all by myself, no tutorial or anything. I dropped a few stitches in the middle of a row, and then picked them back up. Then a fellow knitter told me that's not how you do it, and showed me the real way. I can't remember it now, of course. And my bubble was slightly burst. Ah, well. I still think it looks good.

And here it is in action!

Lots and lots of knitting has been happening over here (and much of it has been getting finished!) but I'm feeling the need for a quick, instant gratification type of craft project. I'll let you know how it goes!
