I finished up a quick crochet today. For Charms Class, the prompt was to use a "Gripping Charm" to make something that helps grip objects. You could make something you wear, like mittens, gloves, fingerless mitts, or something to cover the object, like a cozy or pot holder.
I decided to make another wine cozy, or a "butter beer cozy" since it is for HPKCHC. I am trying to build up a stash of gifts. It is nice to be able to just grab something that is already made, rather than try to make something quickly to a deadline. I think giving a bottle of wine is a great idea when we are invited out. Making a cozy for that wine makes the whole gift a bit more special.
I did this at Christmas time. I made a wine cozy in the University of Notre Dame colors for our hosts at a Hospital Christmas Party. The Host is a big ND fan, and of course, the Doc and I are, also.
I made this one just a bit bigger so it will fit over a champagne bottle. I also added some patterned stitches for decoration.
shaping the world with pre-made gifts.
