SEAT BELT COZIE



After figuring out that neither my husband or my budget would allow me to knit the CAR COZIE (I would not only had to purchase 135 skeins of yarn, but I would have had to purchase a real VW car) . . . soooooooooo . . . I did the next best thing . . . I made a SEAT BELT COZIE!!!! . . . I saw this a couple of months ago on someone's blog (sorry I don't remember who's) that I was checking out during Secret Pal 8 and knew that I had to make one for myself as I am vertically challenged (meaning 5'2") and tired of having seatbelts cut into my neck . . . this is a very very very simple pattern and for those of you who knitted the Plymouth Heaven blanket it is the same pattern, just has button hole s(yarn overs) and knitted buttons (bobbles) . . . you can find the free pattern by going to www.magknits.com and looking for "Seat Belt Snuggles, by Chris Behme" . . . I used some very very very soft yarn that I had in my stash (label no longer on yarn, but I know that I bought it a couple years ago at WalMart to make a scarf . . . this was before I knew the way of finer string s0 please forgive me) . . . hmmmmmm . . . I think I may make a few more of these to color coordinate with my clothes . . . what do you think? . . . got to get ready for work so TTFN and ladybug kisses . . .

No chocolate yet. . . but we have been talking back and forth . . . I mailed my package to her on Saturday . . . I think I scared her with my last email-do you know of anyone who would be interested in a "strip chocolate game" . . . did hear though from the Secret KT2 Pal and should be getting an all "tea/knitting" related package from her shortly . . .
