Welcome Back

Today I’d like to share a picture of the knitted hot water bottle cover I made for my mother in law for Mothers Day.

Hand knitted hot water bottle cover from 'The Little Knitting Company' kit.

The project was from a kit I saw on C&C, lucky I bought it a while ago as it took ages to work out what I was doing. Luckily after getting in touch with the company, there was a revision in the pattern which helped it make more sence and they also linked to a tutorial for how to do the tie for the top,which I got a bit stuck on.

Sure hope she likes it, I seem to have an allergy to wool and sneezed like I had a cold throughout the project. No more wool for me! The yarn was called Geko and is 85% wool, 15% alpaca. It shed a lot of fibres as I knitted it, so maybe that’s what made me sneeze so much.

Have since found some more hot water bottle cover designs on Ravelry so I’d make MIL another one, but out of different yarn ;) MIL is never far from a hot water bottle cover and these covers look like a much more cozy option to cuddle up to.

My fave hot water bottle cover pattern (design-wise I haven’t tried it yet!) is; All you Need – a classic.

Make Mum smile, make her something special with time and love. You know she will treasure it, and prob show all her friends too :)

Thoughts and prayers for everyone (like me) whose Mothers are no longer with them.

Welcome Back

Today I’d like to share a picture of the wrist warmers I knitted for Christmas for my MIL. The pattern was Sirdar Knitting Pattern 9135 I knitted a short version as an  alternative to regular gloves as my MIL uses a stick and finds gloves difficult to use with it.

With these, MIL can tuck them up her sleeve and just have the ends covering her hands but still have a clear palm for her stick.

Hope she likes them. The yarn I used was Sirdar Click; colour 181

Thank goodness for Brittany birch knitting needles, they are much kinder to my stiff hands.
