Have you ever notice that coffee, tea and hot cocoa taste just a little bit better in a great mug? I for one, am a fanatic about the mug I drink out of. My morning coffee is my favorite time of day and I want the experience to be perfect in every way. If I am not pleased with the mug I have chosen, it takes a bit of joy away from the moment. For this reason we are starting a new series of posts at the Cross Country Cafe blog - Show us Your Mug! Each week I will pick a mug picture submitted by a reader, me or simply a cute mug I come across online or in a store.
This weeks mug is submitted by… Santa.
Santa let me in on a little inside information, he will be bringing this mug to my sister this year!
It is quite a coincidence that he has chosen such a perfect gift for her…she and I have just taken up crocheting… how did he know?! We attended a workshop a few weeks ago and now visions of hats, gloves, blankets and scarves are dancing through my head! I tend to go a bit crazy/ all in when I explore a new interest as you can see by my new amass of yarns:
I actually finished a hat in one day and have now moved on to my next project- new granny square Christmas stockings for the entire family. I am off to a slow start, 10 granny squares down:
I need 20 squares per stocking, there are 6 of us in my family as well as 2 dogs…how many more do I need? I don’t even want to do the math.
Of course I have every intention of combining by new hobby with my one true love- coffee. My french press so needs a handmade cozy:
As do my mugs:
And I wouldn’t want my travel mugs to feel left out:
But first and foremost, this crochet Kcup coffee basket needs to be on my counter very soon (as soon as I finish 210 granny squares for our new stockings):
Did you notice how they all match so perfectly? All of my coffee equipment needs to coordinate of course!
Do we have any crocheters out there? I would love to see more coffee and orKcup ideas!
