    Coffee Cozies, Bookmarks and More

    The past few days I have been keeping myself very busy. I have been crocheting and knitting like crazy! My biggest creative problem is that I always have more than 2 projects going at the same time. Sometimes this is a good things because I need to walk away in order to re-think my process or because it is taking much longer to finish than I expected so I am getting bored. So this weekend I worked on several small projects that I knew I could easily finish and photograph for listings on Sunday or Monday.

    The first project was making bookmarks out of yarn that I knew was to small of a quantity to make anything larger. I crocheted 2 bookmarks out of my peppermint twist yarn.

    The next project was to make face scrubbies out of the rest of the peppermint twist yarn. So I made 3 face scrubbies, which there was just enough yarn to finish the third!The last project started out as mock-ups for my fellow Challengette: themagpiesdaughter. She was looking for a knitted coffee cozy for herself, so I started doing some mock-ups. I tore them out several time (yes I am very critical of my work). In the end I really like knitted cozy I made to show her. I also crocheted a coffee cozy to list, just to see how it does.

    I figured these small projects would be great for stocking stuffers for the upcoming holidays.
