(beer) SOCK !


when i finished my last pair of socks, i decided these pretty leftovers should become a beer cozy. i made one last year, and you know what? it's pretty handy! it WORKS! it keeps the beer cold longer, and no more drippy bottle =)

it's really great for leftovers too. it only requires about 15 to 17 grams of fingering yarn. i already made one cozy from the leftovers above, and am trying to squeeze out one more. if i run out of this yarn, then i'll just finish it off with another leftover from stash.

i don't have many beer-appreciating friends, so, i won't be making tons of these as gifts or anything ... but i do have a couple of friends that would be jazzed to have one.

I love this idea for using up sock yarn bits! Plus I'm a slow beer drinker, so this will work for me.

very smart! Not finishing your real socks, saving them for August!

Ingenious use of leftovers! It gives me ideas. Around my friends, one can never have too many beer cozies.
