hi everyone! i thinks this is my first post in the knitting board Smiley

i made this hot water bottle cozy for my boyfriend to use at night, because here in Chile is winter right now.
i've been promising a hotwater bottle for him for ages, and finally i had the time and the enough knitting abilities to do it Cheesy

it was a quick project and it helped me to learn a lot, watching videos on the internet to learn how to do stitches and weird things that i never heard before Cheesy a great website for videos is: http://www.knittinghelp.com/videos/learn-to-knit , the videos are really really good, and i watched some in youtube because i'm left handed Smiley http://es.youtube.com/user/LeftyKnits .

the hot water bottle was really cheap so i have to test it before i give it to my boyfriend, i don't want him to get burned Tongue
(it cost $1500 chilean pesos on a fabric store (?) and in pharmacies they cost like $5000 pesos! i hope is good cuality, or even "decent" quality Tongue)

the pattern is from here: http://www.blueskyalpacas.com/pattern_detail.php?patterns_ID=32
very easy to follow, i altered it by casting on half stitches and the increases were made with half the stitches too, is good to test gauge before starting!!

and the i-cord i learned to make, it was really easy and i love it, i'll be making more of these cords Smiley
(thanks to LeftyKnits videos on youtube)


THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR STOPPING BY
PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT Smiley

saludos!

Hablo un poco espanol, pero tengo un traductor en mi computadora. su botella de la agua caliente "cosy" es muy bonito. Nesecito una para mi cama en el invierno!

Well, I tried. I'm not sure how good my translator is on here.

Good work!   Cheesy

Wow...you did a great job on it.  I didn't know that you could knit a water bottle cover.  Thanks for sharing it with us.
