Nothing is better on a cool fall day than a warm beverage to sip. And nothing ruins a nice fall day like getting your hands burned by said warm (*hot*) beverage. That's why I always try to carry a crochet cup cozy with me. They are so easy to make, fun to use, and will keep your drink warm and your fingers safe. Plus they are more environmentally conscious than those flimsy cardboard ones they have at cafes.
