Lay Flat to Dry Mug and Handwash Mug

Provided by Knitbaahpurl

Reviewed by Audrey Huggett


I’ll be honest—I’m totally in love with the “Handwash” and “Lay Flat to Dry” mugs from Knitbaahpurl.   Under normal circumstances, I’m a huge fan of mugs, and the sheep-themed patterns take these mugs to the next level.  Although a bit smaller than the average mug, these cute creations are perfect for casually sipping tea or coffee with a friend.  The obvious knitting references and original art adorning the cups are only another reason to love them.  The silly illustrations of sheep on each mug is what really sets these products apart from the rest.  Knitbaahpurl reimagines simple knitting care instructions as if they were applied directly to the source of wool, sheep, with hilarious results. 

I can easily imagine myself sipping on a cup of tea from one of these cute mugs.  Ideally, I’ll be drinking my tea while knitting, creating the ultimate domestic scene.  Any knitter or crochet fan—any fiber arts fan, really—will get these simple, witty jokes.  The illustrations of the tiny sheep acting out washing instructions for wool, as if they had to take care of their fleeces before being sheered, are wonderfully whimsical.  Anyone who’s crossed paths with sheep or wool is sure to adore these fantastic mugs.

Those mugs are so cute. My favorite is the lay flat to dry only because I am partial to red. This is one of my favorite websites to browse as well. Sooooo many great ideas.

What a neat way to represent three of my interests (fiber arts, hot beverages, & humor). Too bad there aren't any mischievous lambs in the background; that would be a perfect rendition of my life.
