ICC#33- Finishing Off Where I left Off

Our Iron Craft Challenge this week was UFO, the unfinished object.  The challenge was to find a project that you hadn't finished yet and...FINISH IT!  Seems simple enough; I have lots of projects that I have started and then never finished.  The challenge was, which one?

I chose a knitted coffee cozy that I had started about two years ago and never finished.  It was using a cable knitting technique which I learned for the project and sadly had forgotten since.


I begin thinking that I would finish the knitting project to make a coffee cozy.  But honestly, I had since made a coffee cozy that I use regularly and didn't really want to spend hours knitting something I didn't really want.  So, I made it into a bracelet!


I attached buttons and made yarn loops to close it with.  Ta-da!  A perfect fall accessory!
