I am still using this cozy for my water jar and I am very happy with it. I've gotten a lot of comments on it. I might need to make one in a different color, but this cozy is definitely a keeper!
I tend to hoard things, especially recyclables. I just have a
problem throwing away things that can be reused. Given that I try to
buy things in glass jars rather than plastic, that means I have a
collection of glass. Yes, I could take them to the glass bin that sits
in our Fareway parking lot, but that would require me to remember. And
what if I need a jar after I get rid of them all?
use for jars that I don't use often enough is drinking glasses. If I
feel safe enough eating food that came from a jar, I should feel safe
washing it out and drinking from it.
I recently broke
my jelly jar water glass at work. It was thick, had a handle, and I had
used it at work for almost two years. I dropped it just right to
shatter it. Now I do have a match to that glass, but I use it often at
home. So instead, I dug through my stash of jars and found a new one.
My tea mug has had a cozy for quite some time, so I decided my new jar should get one too. I chose to use a pattern I had made for xmas and changed it to go around rather than flat, making it look more interesting than single crochet.
