Fall is Coming...

               Well happy summer everyone!   I apologize for my neglect during these past few months, but my goodness I am having such a wonderful time :)   Hubby and the girls and I have had a great summer this year, lots of fun and excitement.  I have been crocheting and knooking, but haven't had much computer time to share any posts.  I have completed a very cute hedgehog pillow, progressed quite nicely on an afghan and even started knooking a pair of socks!  Again I could go on and on about how great the knook is.  I went on to Etsy and bought some smaller knooks so that I could make socks and mittens with real intricate knitting patterns!  This has brought much joy to my life lol.
                At the beginning of summer on a lazy hot and humid day, I sat with a steaming hot and delicious cup of black coffee ( I prefer Folgers), waking up and surfing Ravelry <3.  My oldest daughter was sitting with me and she seen a very cute and simple creation, an apple cozy.  She just fell in love with it.  She almost immediately began insisting that I absolutely must make this for her teachers.  With summer vacation already started, it was too late to give this as an end of school year gift, so I suggested giving them to the teachers as a Welcome Back from summer gift.  She really liked that idea, and I like the twist on the classic leaving an apple on the teacher's desk.
                This is a free pattern that I found online.  I tried a few different ones, but this one looked the best when finished.  There is an optional leaf attachment in the pattern, but I decided not to use it this time, I don't have the right color green on hand.  But it is really cute.

               I found the free pattern here, Crafty-Anna.  This quick little project only took me a couple of hours to finish.  I plan on making at least 6 more.  I highly recommend this one.   I used Bernat Handicrafter yarn and an H hook.  It fits an average size apple.  The pattern is easily adaptable to make a smaller or larger cozy. 
Thanks for looking and Happy Hooking!
