Yay! I've just finished knitting up the first pattern that I deigned - a hot water bottle cover for my Felix. Granted it is a very simple one, but best to start small and work my way up I reckon. I've already made some alterations to the pattern for next time but overall I'm very happy with how it came out. I will make another with the adjustments and share the pattern if it all works out. Now I really should go to sleep otherwise the poor boys will have a really cranky Mummy in the morning but I was so excited I just had to share.
Next time I might try it with stripes so that you get see the effect of the three colours together.
