I usually need a quick FO fix after completing a big object and the Somewhat Cowl morning after was no exception. Last weekend I made a cup of coffee in my french press that convinced me to put away my coffee pot and espresso maker and reclaim the extra counter space. There was also a pattern in my Ravelry queue that I have had my eye on for some time-the Mug and French Press Jacket- I loved the stitch pattern. I just happened to have enough of the first yarn I ever spun to knit up one of my own- I had to do a bit of math to make the gauge work. I am using a cork as a temporary closure until I come across the perfect button.
Two days later, the greedy FO beast has been tamed and my coffee is nice and hot!
I modified the pattern a bit to make up for the thick handpun I used. I also left off the base.
