So being summer time, the weather gets quite hot. Yes, even here in Canada. The best thing to do with hot weather is barbecue. And the best thing to have with a great barbecued steak is a cold beer.
(Note: I am not advocating unsafe barbecuing. If you are going to drink alcohol, please remember to do so responsibly.)
As anyone who has a cold drink in hot weather knows, sweating is a problem. The condensation created from the cold drink and the warm weather can make drinking uncomfortable with wet hands.
I was mentioning to Scott that I should crochet some cozies for his cans, and I could make them pretty. Being the manly man he is, he laughed it off, declaring “No cozies for me!” Grabbing my drink and seeing the condensation, he told me I should make some for myself. “And I’ll make them pretty and girly!!” said I.
Laughing again, I’m sure he imagined pink ponies and rainbows. I declared “Nay nay! Pink skulls,” which he mentioned he would love to see.
So. I give you pink skulls. (Link to the Ravelry page.)
It took a few tries adjusting my gauge to fit the necessary measurements and finding a skull pattern that worked (I ended up finding one on Ravelry that I adjusted), but I have it figured out now. And I will totally be doing more of these, with cool designs. I’m excited.
