Meet Dirk, he's a hottie

Been doing a spot of knitting.  Latest creation is Dirk the Hottie cover - so named because he looks unsettlingly like a 70's roll neck jumper.
 This is my other hot water bottle cover, also made by me.  It doesn't have a name.  Hmm, maybe it should.  I know, we shall call her Celeste.
Celeste and Dirk
Now I can say I'm sleeping with Dirk and hubs is sleeping with Celeste.  Ah ha ha ha.

Hmm, just remembered that Miss 5s OT lady is called Celeste.  Ahem.  Let's change the subject.

Dirk has been upcycled.  He started out as a cardigan...
Old, pilly, never sat quite right and the colour made me look ill
I pulled the cardigan to bits, and reknitted from a pattern I found on Ravelry.  Am rather pleased with it actually.
