I used to hate mis-matched mugs in my kitchen.
Then I started to knit and a whole world of knit-inspired products began to appeal. Project bags, tote bags, tee-shirts, mugs…..
This mug has been on my ‘Items I Love’ list, on etsy, for a while…it makes me smile inanely.
While some companies can produce “knit” inspired products, many of the people behind them have probably never even seen a pair of knitting needles, let alone employed a pair. But there are some makers out there who do get it and really hit the mark.
If you are looking for a fun gift for a knitter I do think etsy is a great place to look and Kelly Connor Designs hits that mark for me. Her shop is filled with bags and mugs with great humour and attitude – I particularly love this Ian Dury inspired bag.
Perfect for a festive hot chocolate….or spiked hot chocolate!
And if you can’t find a knit-product that does it for you, make your own. This is one of my very favourite mugs which thelovelyfella got me for my birthday…clever lovelyfella.
