I was asked to make a hot water bottle cover in black furry yarn, so you have to admit that ‘hot fuzz’ is appropriate here.
It doesn’t photograph well, but the top is a separate little crocheted dome with elastic round the edge which fits nicely over the sticky-out spout bit. I’m not sure how much heat it’s going to let through but it does look lovely. And feels nice – like a big furry and very squashed cat.
I enjoyed the knitting, it’s a nice change from crochet every once in a while (even though that bloody furry fuzzy stuff isn’t my first choice of yarn). So I kept my needles out (or the knitty sticks, as Rachel would say) and cast on for a garter stitch beanie: rikke hat
I’m using the new Print colours in Elle Pure Gold DK from Saprotex, there are 6 shades and each has lovely flecky bits of various muted shades offset against a solid base colour. The rikke hat is ‘la Fonda’, it’s my favourite so far. I’ve crocheted some hats with three of the other colours:
It works up like a dream. And chop-chop. You know how I love chop-chop.
Looks deliciously cosy. The hats too. Xx
My hot water bottle cover narrows and extends over the top so my toes don’t touch any unprotected part of the hottie. Love your cover and the hats.
Loving the hats and the hot fuzz. My grandson tells me to keep on knotting!
I do indeed…in fact I need to get my own knitty sticks working to finish my Hitchhiker shawlette (hate that word!)
That hottie looks very snugly, but I think I might not want to knit the furry stuff.
