A basic coffee sleeve that is knit flat and a great exercise for practicing some simple cables and seaming.
This is my take on Laura B’s “Nifty Coffee Sleeve.” Her pattern was just a touch too wide for me, so I dropped off 2 stitches from the middle.
I also added on a few garter stitch rows at the beginning and end to make the seaming easier.
I’ve been spending a bit of time (as we all do this time of year) reflecting on the past year. I’ve been in silent debate about how much of it I wanted to address, really. It’s hard to feel like much of anything epic has come out of it. In fact, I’d likely prefer to forget about much of it and instead focus on the new year ahead… but then I saw this image on Pinterest and I thought it might inspire some unique reflection that might help me part ways more peacefully with 2014… so here goes.
I’ve been doing a lot of soul searching lately on what my expectations of my future lover are. And so I’m putting them together into a little series here to serve as a gentle reminder that I am worth so much more than I have previously allowed others to treat me.
“Yeah, my mama she told me don’t worry about your size
She says, “Boys like a little more booty to hold at night.”
You know I won’t be no stick figure silicone Barbie doll
So if that’s what you’re into then go ahead and move along…”
New glazes this session so there was a lot of trial and error. Overall, I am pleased.
