The permanent aftermath of this rare yet vicious attack has left her with partial deafness, tinnitus, hyperacusis, a balance disorder, vertigo attacks, in addition to severe chronic migraines with "auras", making each days simplest tasks very challenging, often impossible. As she struggles to care for her beloved family and keep life functioning as close to normal as possible, she does manage to find a few stolen moments to escape the madness of her limitations into her world of, Knit 'n Kaboodle.

I designed this quick knit "Cup Cuddler" as a series of connected meandering leaves. It is seamed, pieced, and blocked. I recommend you use cotton yarn for a cold beverage sleeve and a wool/wool blend yarn for a hot beverage sleeve. This is a fun way to learn how to knit a new knit stitch and for using up those bits of yarn in your left over stash.
