Keeping Warm (day 8)

For all the challengers experiencing the cold weather!


This is a treasure I had in mind when I started the challenge and have been pondering how to make it interesting. The hot water bottle is at least 35 years old (it was my grandmothers who had knitted a cover for it). I was still using it during the winter of 2008. Until I noticed that when I emptied it pieces of rubber were also coming out.


I love it because without the ribbing, that our current hot water bottles have to have, I could use water straight from the hot tap water and it would still keep me warm.


Last winter I was visiting UK for a month and my husband quickly purchased an electric blanket for warmth, previously he relied on me warming the bed up for him, LOL.
