Mug jersey / The Play Date Cafe

Good morning Bloglanders

I hope you had a wacky weekend!  I just love color.  I keep my pens out on my desk, my knitting needles in a see through jar, my rolls of tread on a tray because I love to look at them. Not that I do knitting - that's the one thing that I only do if all else fails.

So, when all else failed, I decided to knit a jersey for the enamel mug on my desk which holds my pens.  And this is what it looks like now:

I actually want to use it to serve cheese straws or bread sticks at a real South African braai but in the meantime, it looks pretty fab out on my desk.  I love purple and therefor, loved this weeks color combo from The Play Date Cafe.  Here it is:

And a close up of my crochet flowers:
