Hawkeye Scarf

This scarf took forever. I can't decide if that is because it is knit in a k1 p1 pattern of if I just resented making it for an ex-boyfriend. Either way, it is done.

Coffee Sleeve

I have what can only be described as a horrible addiction to Starbucks. All I have to do is cross the street and I'm at a caffeinated oasis where the baristas are friendly and the coffee is strong. I feel guilty about my Starbucks addiction for many reasons, one of which is the wastefulness of the paper cups and sleeves. I use a travel mug as often as possible. It isn't possible very often, as I forget my travel mug at home approximately 80% of the time.

In order to lessen my environmentalist guilt I use a knit coffee sleeve. They are quite popular, and I've made a few for my friends. They knit up quickly and are really, really easy.
