Keeping warm

My reluctance to throw anything away is bordering on the obsessive.

I accidentally slightly shrunk one of my winter jumpers in the wash, making it a bit too small and uncomfortable to give to charity.

As the pattern is so cute I decided to make it into a hot water bottle cover. Here's what I did.

I cut the front and back into rectangles:

Used crochet to join the 2 pieces together:

Found some ribbon for the top, et voila:

Mmm, will keep my hot water bottle nice and warm during these frosty winter days and nights.

As a reward I snuggled on the sofa to enjoy some delicious banana cake from the Climate Connections get together last night:
