Small Knit Project

So remember a while back when I said that I was learning to knit? Well, I've been creating some more little things. I actually have two beautiful projects going but can't tell you about them just yet as one is a gift for my sister. She tends to read this so, I can't spill the beans just yet.

But here's a little something that I found and whipped up:

It's a heart mug rug that I found over at FaveCrafts.  It's super easy and great for beginners.  By the way, the mug featured was made by Brainella the Librarian.  Go check out her Etsy shop to buy your own.  She's also got these awesome owls that I adore and would snatch up had I a job and some extra money.

Here's the front and back of the mug rug:

I'm on Ravelry (name ahack025) so if you knit or crochet, come and be my friend.  Do you do any crafts and do you blog about them or share photos?  If so, let me know!


  1. Fantastic! I've tried knitting quite a few times, even taken a class and I cannot do it! Very well done! :) And that is one lovely mug...

  2. You must have had fun!
    Careful though, knitting is dangerously addictive. My other half spends endless hours knitting and on Ravelry.

  3. I am trying to learn to knit/crochet as I would love to do the granny squares but havent been successful upto now. I quilt though.

  4. Hi, this is Jess from Lion Brand. Congratulations on learning to knit! I really like how your mug rug looks in Nature's Choice Organic Cotton. Remember, if you ever need any knitting help, feel free to contact us or check out
