I’m still working on the baby cape a few inches each day, but that didn’t appeal to me either. I dragged out a crochet coat that I started last winter and couldn’t face that, so I started another hot water bottle cover. I’ve got another friend’s birthday coming up and I learnt my lesson last year when I made different projects for different people and they all wanted what the other ones had. Em, if you’re reading this you really are getting something different.
I’m personalising it for the recipient like I did with the last one. Jen is mad on lizards and has lizard everything around her home – everything except a hand-knitted hot water bottle cover of course! I’ve done a chart for the lizard, but rather than knit it in (and pull my hair out in the process), I’ve decided to swiss darn it on later. Here's the front so far, there will be another band above the yellow panel, the back will be plain green and i'll probably cable the neck again.
