It's Cold, Not "Balm-y"...

Snow snow snow!  I love it.  I also know I am in the minority.  As I type this, snow is heading to my area and I am wondering how tomorrow will pan out with me and work.  I don't know if I have mentioned... I'm a high school teacher.  I'm wondering if we will have a snow day tomorrow.

Speaking of the cold and snow, I've been keeping warm here with orders.  The St. Pat Hats were a hit, and I am furiously trying to get them packaged and sent out by tomorrow...
This is just a portion of what I made.

It's for a family for the St. Pat's Parade! I love how Mom decided to get a lighter color hat to keep it feminine!  I always get to hear great ideas from customers.  I want to thank ALL of you for your orders.  It really made me get into the spirit!

This brings me to my second item I whipped up!  Another coffee cozy - with a shamrock pocket!

What do you think?  I know they're running a little late... but better late than never!

Speaking of cozies...  my husband told me that he accidentally drank his coworker's coffee the other week because they have the same thermos.  So he asked me to make a cozy for his coworker.  I thought maybe putting an initial on the front of the cozy would be cute.  Here is what I came up with:
What do you think?  I've made a few more... for friends.  Would you be interested in something like this?

I also have a lil' something else for you all!  Of course, it comes from yet another Sweet Kiwi Crochet pattern...
