Knitting for warmer tea

Awhile back I knit a cup cozy for when we went camping. I first admired the pattern in Interweave Knits Holiday edition a few years ago. It worked as well as a cup open in the outdoor cold can work. 

Since D rejected the gold colored yarn on his sweater and I was looking for a quick easy project, I remembered the cozy.

Yeah I like this one too. It is so nice to start and finish a project in the same day. Feels like I really got something done with my day. I especially like to make a cup of tea and cozy it while knitting. It really helps keep the heat inside the house.

Some people like to knit hats as a quick project I like to make reverse hats for my cups. Does that make me weird or just a tea lover?


  1. I think I need to start making myself some tea cup cozies, too. I usually end up making a cup, then forgetting about it while I knit. "Just one more row... then I'll have some tea." I often end up with a cold cup of tea! And I think they make more sense for me than a tea cozy for a teapot. I can only ever manage to drink one cup!

  2. While they do help they may not be a total solution. Usually by the end of my cup it is on the lukewarm cool side, but I usually have another row in.
