I recently made these cute 100% cotton microwave bowl cozies for some newlyweds.
I use mine everyday when I microwave my oatmeal. I place the bowl of oatmeal in the cozy and stick them in microwave to heat up. No burnt fingers from touching the hot bowl, just steaming good oats. The perfect breakfast of champions.
It started with my SIL. She asked me if I could make a blue bag from a pattern she liked on Pinterest, the Sakura Market Bag pattern. I thought, “Sure. I’ll give it a try.” It turned out beautiful. I would highly recommend the pattern. Then she wanted a second one. So I made another one, just like the first.
Next, my daughter asked for one. I decided it would be fun to try to create my own design.
I’ve been making tons of market bags for others. As soon as I finish one, I start another. They are such fun to crochet.
But my hands were itching to knit a summer cardigan just for me. When I found this yarn at my favorite local yarn shop, The Farmer’s Wife/The Yarn Studio, in Casey, Illinois, I knew it was the yarn for me. It matches perfectly my odd colored, yet beloved pants. (Don’t tell my husband I bought more yarn!)
