Shhh, its a secret

A couple of weeks ago, when I was knitting my mother-in-law's hot water bottle cover Elise came over. Poor Elise has been having a lot of trouble with some muscle issues and has been applying heat using a wheat heat pack. I went on a little rant about why I think hot water bottles are better than heat packs. Here's the condensed version:

  • They start at a better temperature
  • They cool down slower
  • They never smell like burnt toast
  • And, for me the definitive reason, they don't need a microwave, since I don't have one.

Elise agreed, and said someone had said they mold better to your back, or something. So, I made her one, using some beautiful Miss Babs and MadTosh leftovers which were not enough to make any one thing with. I'm super happy with how the stripes came out, and I hope the love I put into knitting it helps Elise get better as much as the warmth she gets from this bottle.
