Cosy Hot Water Bottle

Nanna’s Hot Water Bottle cover was looking rather bedraggled so Matt decided it had reached it’s sell-by date. When I saw the pattern for this one I knew it would make a cuddly replacement.

The alpaca yarn would have been beautiful but was a bit too expensive and I would have had to wait for it (yawn) so I went to Clare’s shop and bought Sirdar Big Softee and knittted  with 10mm needles. Velvet ribbon is another touchy feely fabric.

Mmm much nicer than bare rubber for those cold toes. Nanna’s very pleased.

  1. You don’t have to open the ribbon to fill it. Nanna has mastered the art of filling her hottie with a jug, which is actually safer for her. PS have you noticed you can subscribe to the blog now!
