Hotwater bottle covers and other things...
But it's not so much fun snuggling with a rubber hot water bottle, it feels wrong.
I just got some new full sized hotties for the grand price of $4.50 so they needed some dressing up. There's a pattern in "The Art of Crochet" issue 14 so I decided to try it. Apparently UK hot water bottles are bigger than those in NZ or 8ply was too thick, because it was far too wide. So I turned it sideways and improvised.

Not the best pic I know, I'm currently temporarily at dial up speed because my broadband allowance "somehow" got exceeded. Even a cellphone pic takes ages to upload. I went grocery shopping while this one was uploading if that gives you any idea!
I am quite please with my result, so is the Wee Girl because she's not over keen on naked hotties. She's a snuggle on the sofa gal from way back.
I've also made a cloche style hat and some pacifier clips for my friends stall. I've had a busy week.
