Fancy a cuppa?

Remember those cups that had little knitted cozies? I liked that idea quite a bit, so I adopted it for one of my old mugs.
I quite like how it turned out, except the buttons are a bit wonky. I actually knit it as a narrow strip, rather than a wide one. If I make another, I think I'll do it the other way: it would be easier to put some ribbing in that way, which I think would improve the functionality.

This yarn is from Suss Designs. It's a slubbed cotton that I got a long time ago, when I was first learning how to knit. The yarn comes as two strands wound together. I knit it on size nine needles. I think the moss stitch shows off the variations in the yarn really well, although it's not so clear from the picture.
