The author feels a bit down in January and wanted a project to cheer up. They decided to make colorful covers for mason jars to brighten up their kitchen. Mason jars are their favorite and they use them for various things like making ‘to-go’ cups by adding straw holes to the lids. They prefer wide-mouth quart-sized jars for convenience but use pint-sized ones for safety reasons.
For the covers, they used cotton yarn as it’s absorbent and can be washed easily. The supplies needed for the covers include yarn, a crochet hook, needle, and scissors. The cover pattern involves crocheting rows using two different yarn colors, changing colors in each row. They provide step-by-step instructions on how to make the cover for the quart-sized jars.
The author also shares their love for iced tea and a recipe they found with a secret ingredient—baking soda—that reduces bitterness in the tea. They updated their recipe for perfect microwave iced tea on their blog. They suggest drinking plenty of water before enjoying the tea and find that mason jars are great for holding water too.
In summary, the author shares a fun craft project to make covers for mason jars, particularly quart-sized ones, using colorful yarn. They also talk about their favorite drink, iced tea, and a special recipe they found for it.
