We know that it’s hard to imagine that just a few months from now, the temperatures will dip, the nights will be longer and we’ll be reaching for our handknits on a daily basis. Every year, I resolve to make something extra snuggly for myself--a hand knit cover for my hot water bottle. And what better pattern for Wool & Honey than the traditional Aran honeycomb motif? The ubiquitous hot water bottle, antiquated as it might seem, is the perfect solution for (almost) whatever ails you. Got the flu? Put this on your car seat or your office chair to help alleviate your body aches. Cold toes? Slip this sweater-covered cozy between the sheets. Severe cramps this month? Curl up on the couch with some chocolate--and the Bee Cozy pressed to your abdomen. It’s also perfect for kids; hot water bottles are a safe solution to the very dangerous heating pads and polyester electric blankets of the past. Tuck one in with your little one at night, sending them off to dreamland in the coziest way imaginable.
