Cozy Kick

We've been under a Winter Storm Warning since yesterday 7 pm, and it doesn't look like it will lift until tonight around 9 pm. Seriously big snow this time, prediction is between 10" to 12"+. We'll see what happens...

Meanwhile, I have been on a bit of a cozy kick lately. It helps use up the half skeins of lovely wool I've had in my stash for a while now. The latest mug cozy/cover is for a friend. I made it to match the fingerless mitts I knit her early last year. It's based on several different hat patterns I've used in the past few yars.
