Mug Cosy

 Summer continues to gently ebb away and the days are turning steadily cooler. And for many of us that calls for a mug-full of hot chocolate and a wolly jumper.

Some people combine the two, don't you know. My good friend Hannah's mug had it's own little wardrobe going on last time I visited. 
When I got home I started to feel bad for my poor, neglected cups. 

They must be freezing! I mean, they're naked ALL the time.

After a quick search online I came across some fantastic mug cosies on sites such as Not On The High Street and Etsy. Here's my favourite find on Etsy, made by MaruWool in Estonia, where I imagine they know a thing or two about staying warm!
 But if you wanted to get crafty and make your own little mug sweater, then look no further than the Sewing Barefoot website which has this free pattern. Personally, I'm in love with the wooden button detailing.
One word of warning though - don't start a new trend by wearing matching knitwear with your mug. To quote myself, that is a serious no-no.

  1. A logistical question: how do you not touch your mouth to it when attempting to drink? That has to be the ickiest feeling, wet wool on your lips? Ack! I mean, they're adorable, but I think I'm too easily repulsed, haha. xo

    1. Oh, I never considered the reality of the mug cosy. I guess I was focusing too on the aesthetics - I'll have to check with Hannah if there's a trick to drinking with one of these wrapped around your cup! x

  2. Aww these are so cute! I love them!


    1. I know - its enough to make you want to learn how to knit!! x
