getting cozy


I don't know about you, but my water bottles sweat. Like crazy. And it either gets my hands all wet and slippery, or it makes a nice puddle on my desk at work. I had no idea that someone had come up with a solution to this annoying problem, until I joined the cup o' yarn swap and saw this pattern while checking out my swap partner's queue ... the water bottle cozy! Knit in cotton, the point more is to absorb the "sweat" and not so much warm the bottle (like normal mug cozies). This is a freebie, the spiral water bottle sling pattern.  Super speedy knit, and only used 1/4 or so of a skein of Peaches 'n Cream dishcloth cotton. My swap partner is enjoying this one ... and I have another on the needles for my favorite water bottle!

  1. I like the design of your cup cozy. Yes, mine sweats too.

  2. I'm lucky in that I rarely drink cold liquid. But I can see the need, your swap partner is going to get some good use out of it!

  3. Very cute! I could have used one of these the other day when I had a paper-towel wrapped around my Gatorade. I think this will join my to-do list!
