|Crocheted Innocent juice bottle cover|
Way back at the beginning of the summer, hard to think that far back, I decided that my garden needed a splash and an injection of colour. Crocheting is a quick fix in adding that splash and you may recall from this post here how I pimped up an Innocent juice bottle.
So before leaving for our summer adventure (see posts: road trip and arctic sailing ) I kept dreaming of summer sea and water. Spurred on too by Lucy at Attic 24 beginning her coastal ripple blanket, the colours just screamed summer to me and I had to play with blues. Not having much time, I decided that my juice bottle could do with a mate, and set to task.

June and July were tough months for our family and along with a lot of baking, my coping mechanism, crochet helped too when I could not bake...
The joy with this type of crochet and using the granny stitch is that it does not require a huge amount of concentration and is therefore easy to pick up and put down at short notice. It did however mean I was carting about with me a plastic Innocent juice bottle, looked at in one light, it could almost be mistaken for a sample bottle, albeit a very large one!?!?!
Judging the size and when to decrease stitches was a guessing game and only really required that after every row, I tried it on for size, so to speak.

in the ends and sew together,

|Oops, photo styling was never my forte, |
see how wonky the cover is placed on the bottle here.
A professional would have spotted this a mile off!!
|Perfect mates, don't you think?|
