Loom Knit Peppermint Mug Hug

Loom Knit Peppermint Mug Hug

Loom Knit Peppermint Mug Hug and Jar Hug Gift Set

By Kristen Mangus

There’s something comforting and refreshing about the red and white stripes of a peppermint or candy cane.  Those stripes make you feel that Christmas is right around the corner.  I know, I know… it’s still 2 months away, but you need to start preparing now.  Waiting until after Thanksgiving is not an option when you have so many gifts to make.  Add a mug hug gift set to giving list this year.  A jar of cocoa and marshmallows wrapped in a soft Peppermint Jar Hug with a matching Mug Hug makes the perfect teacher gift!
