And Now In Blue

I really get a lot of use from the water bottle covers I crocheted a year ago. When I recently bought a couple of new bottles, this time in blue, (Propel Fitness Water*), I decided they needed coordinating covers.

Blue = hand dyed merino Natural = coopworth

Like the others, these are crocheted in handspun, hand dyed wool. Go HERE for the free pattern. These two have been "fulled" in the washing machine for a snugger fit.

* Like this sports drink reviewer, I really like the bottle design of Propel Fitness Water, but find the "fitness water" nothing more than water with added hype (and artificial sweetner). Makes a great sports bottle to refill with tap water though.

Just a quick visit to see what you've been up to. I've been to the knit shop twice this week...what fun . I'm getting help with my sweater...and bought some yarn while there. Got to visit with a spinner who had her blue ribbon sweater at the shop...she designed it and it was a beautiful one. She has one of those software programs that print you out a pattern when you tell it the measurements etc. Your water bottle covers are nice...& would help to keep the water cold too maybe?

Although the water bottle covers might look like an attempt to dress up the bottles, I actually make them for practical reasons. They absorb the condensation that accumulates on the outside of the bottle when you use ice in them. It prevents a big mess on the gym equipment, in lunch bags, and on coffee tables.
