Show and Tell: Cashmere Cozy

Warmer weather is finally here, but if you want something cuddly (but not too big) to knit and prepare for next winter, this week's show and tell might be just the ticket.

EnchantingJuno on Ravelry made a Rachael's ISBN Cabled Hot Water Bottle Cozy out of two skeins of Jade Sapphire Mongolian Cashmere 8-ply.

This is what she had to say about it:

Choose something you really really love. - make sure its a heavier worsted-to-chunky rather than a lighter one - I find with hot water bottle covers that you want to knit them tight and dense, otherwise it might not insulate the bottle against your skin very well.

I love this thing because it’s such a ridiculous luxury - but because it’s only 200 yards you really can use something special.

Thanks for sharing, Juno!
