here are a couple of things i knitted out of white buffalo yarn - it's unspun 6-ply, so it was too chunky for what i wanted, so i separated out the strands and used it as 2-ply. very cosy - esp the hot water bottle! no more burnt toes!

the tissue box i knit bottom-up - the first row was picot, so i could thread elastic through to make it fit nicely.

So cute!  All ready for those spring colds/allergies now, eh?  Grin

The hot water bottle in particular is very nice - it actually has some shape and interest to it (unlike mine, which are always giant felted drawstring bags Wink )  Where did you get the pattern for it?

thanks! i just made the pattern up - i had a cheap rubbery/plastic water bottle (you can get them at the drugstore for next to nothing), and just started knitting around it.

i started with the ribbed "sandwich bag" flap - cast on enough stitches to make it wide enough, knit rib for two inches or so, and then cast on the same number of stitches again and moved to circular, and kept knitting stockinette until it was the right length, then started decreasing, and finnished with more ribbing.

i'm trying to remember how i shaped the bump at the bottom - the water bottle i made it for has a bump at the bottom that i had to make allowance for.
