Recently I stopped drinking from plastic cups. I have nothing against them but buying those red Solo cups really adds up and the recycling bucket ends up loaded with them and boy do those fly on a windy day. Anyway, I bought a couple of plain glass mason jars at the thrift shop and over the past few weeks they’ve worked out really well. In a seemingly unrelated development I was pretty sad to discover that another one of my socks had gotten a hole in the foot. Why do socks have such a limited lifespan? These were knit ages ago, pre Ravelry though they’re up there. Then I remembered something I had seen online, a mason jar with a knit cozy (sort of like the coffee cup cozy things that were really popular a while back). Ravelry has a slew of patterns. Don’t they look like sock legs? Yup! So I did a bit of surgery separating the foot just above the heel and bound off the stitches. A lovely little mason jar cozy! Now my socks have a second life to look forward to and I don’t have to feel sad that there is a hole.
