Going Dotty

Spots and dots - what would the world be without them? They are one of my favourite patterns, applied to anything and everything. (I've even seen polka dot bread!). Making a dotty spotty mug cosy was a thought I had, but then filed away in the "another day" pile, until I received a special request for some dotty mug cosies.
Knitting spots is so much FUN! Seriously, I knitted four cosies consecutively in the space of just 48 hours. Which is why I named these cosies Going Dotty. I think I might if I knit too many more :-)

Some Going Dotty mug cosies are in my shop right now, along with an adorable Marshmallow Bunny one that I have just realised hasn't been shared here. They are organic cotton and make one's mug look rather well dressed, I think.
Autumn is in the air here - and the one little leaf that has turned orange on the grapevine confirms it. I adore this time of year. Cool weather is much more conducive to knitting, or any craft really.

What have you been making lately?
Do you love spots as much as I do?
I hope your week is going well!

  1. Hello Sarah, I read an article once in a Home Decorating Magazine that said "how could you ever NOT be cheerful when you had red polka dot mugs to drink out of each morning?" So I went right out & bought some ... they are so lovely & cheering. As are your mug cosies!!! Have a lovely week Sarah x x

    1. I think I have to agree with that! I have a polka dot tea pot, it's cream with lots of coloured spots, and it always makes me happy. It also happens to also make the best cup of tea too!
      Thank-you so much & I hope you have a lovely week too! x

  2. There is "something" about spots! You're so clever :) xo
