Mug and French Press Jacket

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.

How pretty! I want to make one of those... of course I would have to buy a french press first. lol
I've also been wanting to make a tea pot cozy, just because they are so cute. So I hinted around and got a lovely teapot for Christmas from my brother. Now I'm learning to like drinking tea. lol

Your cozy is lovely!!

How cute! It's such a neat pattern, but can still be worked up fast. Really nice.

It turned out beautiful and what a lovely way to preserve your first homespun. You get to look at and touch it daily. Nice.

Cute idea! I just enjoyed your projects on Ravelry! I found it by checking out your crocheted bookmark turned scarf. Clever!
