I had to think of something that would be small enough that I could manage a whole new technique and design in it too, but I also wanted it to be practical, not just a swatch. I decided on a cup cosy. The double thickness of fabric would be more insulating and the size would give me just enough room for a fun design to allow me to include a two-colour design.
And here it is! The Hot Drink cup cosy is available on Ravelry as a free download, but I'm asking knitters to make a donation to charity in return. The charity I'm supporting is Marie Curie. This is a UK charity which provides help and support to people with terminal illnesses and their families, including information on practical matters (such as financial and funeral planning), nursing care at home and hospice care. Donations will be on an honour system - please consider making a donation of whatever you can.
