With temperatures expected to skyrocket into the 40s next week, it seems as if spring is finally starting to make an appearance. However, I don’t think we’re in for sunny days and picnics quite yet. As everyone knows, April showers bring May flowers, so I think we can expect a wet first few weeks of spring. I know not everyone is a fan of rain, but I’m somewhat partial to dark and dreary days. They’re a great excuse to stay indoors with a good book and a cup of something hot. What’s the perfect accompaniment to a heartwarming cup of Joe or a mug full of tea? That’s right, a easy coffee cozy pattern. These cozy little knits are hard to pass up. They’re fun, quick to knit, and a great stashbusting idea. Keep reading for seven easy ways to customize your beverage of choice.
