When I went up to my parents for last weekend, I rushed to finish up some surprise water bottle holders and putting in a new zipper in my Dad's coat. The zipper sucked. Got to do it over. The water bottle holder I made for my Dad didn't fit the larger bottle he usually uses. And I forgot to take a picture of it. It's the green camo I used in the 5 holder order; backed with a greenish colour from one of my husband's shirts, and another greenish colour for the strap, cut from my husband's pants. His bottle fit in the green/yellow holder I had crocheted, though my hubby said it wasn't manly enough.
So, I decided to head into town, to V&S Stedman's....the closest thing to an old Five and Dime in small, rural Ontario towns. They always have a decent yarn selection (even if it is just Patons/Bernat and Briggs & Little). I found some Handicrafter in grey, beige and brown.
