Wine and Ruffles


As I knit more and more socks, I have more and more little balls of left over sock yarn. I've been wondering what to do with it. I recently bought the new "Knitted Gifts" book by Ann Budd and it has an adorable little project that I can use some of that left over sock yarn for. It's this "Ruffled Bottle Sleeve". It's easy, quick, fun, and practical. It should work great to catch the drips after pouring. I think I'll make several. They'll make great little gifts...with bottles of wine.

Thanks for clearing up the purpose of this little cutie. I wasn't so sure. I just ordered to skeins of Koigu from Purl. Shouldn't have. Got sucked in. ;-)

Okay, those are cute and really practical. I may have to make a few, too.

I can't wait to make some of these as hostess gifts. What a great way to use up those odds and ends that I just can't make myself throw away.
