Thank you, I wonder how much bigger would I have to make it if you were to use wool and felt it?

I think you'll have to know how much (what percentage) of shrinkage you get with the wool you want to use. I think you do a swatch and felt it to find out.

Yep,I would guess so.

knit picks offers one, and coasters too. They have snowflakes on them, but you could easily make them how ever you like. I haven't made one of them yet, but I think they are cute!

How old is 'over-the-hill' and what do you do if you can't hike that far anymore?

Yep, that one keeps popping up in my searches. I found one I could crochet which is something I had not done in a long time. Here is the link if you want to see it.

I want to try the knit picks coffee cup cozy as a gift for a friend who is a big coffee addict! I happened to show her a picture of the knit pick cozy and she thought it was really cool!

It is easier to be forgiven than to receive permission.

great timing, Trek! A very good friend has recently asked for a cup/glass cozy and I knew I'd seen a pattern somewhere but couldn't remember where. And I'm NOT into felting so yours is perfect. (I read some of the felting discussions to see if anything tempts me, and I'm glad I read this one.)

Keep knitting, this too shall pass.
