JPF Pencil CupDesigned by Julie A. Bolduc
I made this pencil cup cause I wanted something new and fresh on my desk to put pencils and pens in instead of the coffee mug that I have been using. And since I crochet, I figured I should have one that is crocheted. This is a cover which is removable so it can be washed. Also you can wash the plastic container as needed. Hope you like it.

*Note: The drink mix container is the one that has smaller tubs of the mix in it. It comes with 4 tubs and has a separate lid. The drink mix is sugar free. I would tell the name but I can't without permission from the company who makes this drink mix. Email me if you can't figure out the name of it. You can also use empty frozen juice concentrate containers.
