I got to try out all sorts of fun new-to-me yarns, including Wool and the Gang’s Billie Jean, a cotton yarn made from upcycled denim.

Wool and the Gang sent me some yarn after the show to use in an upcoming pattern. I loved the way it was packaged in a cute little bag with the #ShareYourKnits hashtag. When I was getting ready for the (Inter)National Cookie Month Crafty Blog Hop (where I’m teaming up with 8 other crafters and bakers to share cookie recipes with a coordinating craft project), I started to realize this denim yarn would make the perfect mason jar cozy.

Let’s face it: Cozies are not usually unisex. They tend to be more on the feminine side. But jar mixes make great gifts for anyone and I knew the denim would give it more of a unisex appeal. The denim yarn makes this cozy perfect for your favorite host (or hostess), or pretty much for anyone else who likes cookies, soups, or whatever other exciting mixes you can fit into a quart-sized mason jar! (By the way, you can get my recipe for the Cherry Almond Cookies jar mix here.)
