My son really wanted to get his teacher something EPIC and he found out she likes tea.... He says she drinks it" like all the time"
Now he came up with idea yesterday and the last day of school is tomorrow.... We already had a mall trip planned and we Pickup up a plain white mug at Bed Bath and Beyond and some fancy organic ( so yummy) teas from World Market.
Last week I made this great pattern from Moogly  for my youngest son's teach and stuck a starbucks card in it. Sadly i don't have my photo because it was a very last minute thing as well!  So if you have a cup with no handles check out the link above from Moogly!

For this pattern you need a mug that is slightly wider at the top than the bottom, 
J hook
Optional buttons

To start I chained 11 ( however cups come in many sizes so if your cup is smaller just chain 5 to 7 so that the chain is the length between the handle. This worked from the top of the handle down in rows until you reach the other side)

Row 1 sc in each ch, (10sc ) 
Row 2 - 20  ch1 1 sc in each sc ( 10 sc)
Row 21 ch1, hdc in the first 5 stitches, sc in the last 5 ( 5 hdc, 5 sc)
Row 22 Ch1 sc in the first 5 stitches, Hdc in the last 5 stitches ( 5 sc, 5 Hdc)
Row 23 sc in each stitch . (10 sc)
Add the button loops
chain 11 sl to first stitch, sl to last stitch chain 9 and sl to last stitch. weave in your end

Add buttons on the other side.
I crocheted simple chain buttons.

To do this:
 join yarn on the other end of the cozy, chain 8 sl chain 8, sl leave a 4 inch tail to wrap around the chains and weave you end in.
do the same thing at the bottom.

The end with the HDC is the top and will fit the mug better since it's larger at the top.

Stardust - any color you like I used #1303 Brown * this requires very little yarn, so make a lot!*
E crochet hook

Skill - Advanced Beginner
(* HINT this is basically a vertical row or a shell*)
First stitch***
Ch3, hdc 3rd ch from hook, ch1, 2 hdc ( all in the same space)
Every other one***
*turn, slip stitch until you and in the ch1 space, ch2,1hdc,ch1,2hdc* repeat until you have the length desired, * it should stretch slightly to slide on and off your wrist.. **

sew the 2 ends together and weave in your tail at least 4 inches worth so it will not come undone.

Christmas spirit Scarf, This yarn and scarf makes me think of the holidays!

This scarf make me want to go out and sing carol with sipping warm apple cider! make it in other colors for other looks! It the white variation it looks sweet and delicate! What color will you make it in?

This is a cute lacy scarf which is extremely quick and easy to make!
I started with a foundation dc here are the instructions in case you need them http://crochetchiq.blogspot.com/2012/07/how-to-crochet-foundation-double.html


 Row 1 - Start with a foundation Dc row of 13 ( if you would like a wider scarf just keep the number odd and you can add as many as you like)

Row 2-turn ch2, 1dc in the first dc, skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2 dc in the next,skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2 dc in the last dc of the row

Row 3 until the the last row- turn ch 2, 1 dc in the first, *skip 1, 2dc in the next* repeat until the end of the row.
I added fringe, but this also looks great with a ch3 sl border
