As well as getting ready for Christmas, I have several family members who have their birthdays in December (very inconsiderate of them!) so I have birthday presents as well as Christmas presents to sort out. My mother in law’s birthday is Christmas Eve but because she is usually at work then, we go round and have a Christmas dinner with them beforehand. We went round yesterday and had a lovely lunch and were thoroughly spoilt.

I decided I would knit something for her birthday present, so I made this mug cosy using a pattern from Ravelry. It’s a quick and simple, but effective knit and is great for keeping your coffee warm. Might make one for myself!

Hope she likes it :)
