Knitting with fox
Finally I've finished the gloves. I can't believe I started them in April. There aren't so many cold days now to wear them but I'll have them nice and new for next winter.
I've also made a coffee cozy adapted from Ann Budd's design in her book 'Knitted gifts'. I like to get a take-out coffee on work day mornings but by the time I get it to work - especially on a cold day - it's barely warm enough to drink. The cozy idea is a wee bit naff but it actually works! I get to sit at my desk with a nice hot coffee. Mmmmmmm.
And, while I'm trying to buy less stuff, I couldn't resist this adorable fox. I've got him sitting on the window sill in the bathroom and the morning sun makes him glow with golden cuteness.
