Water Bottle Cozy

I wanted to practice stripes in the round and found this cute pattern on Ravelry.

Some knitters choose this type of project because they want to use up bits of left over yarn. In my case I actually went shopping for remnants and found several fun colors of wool at Legacy Craft Thrift.

I needed one more bright color so I over dyed this gray-blue.

While searching YouTube for a video to remind me how to join knitting in the round I accidentally discovered there's a way to create a 'jogless join'. Instead of the color jogging up a row at the change point, they appear to be in line.

I studied those and experimented with different methods. It worked!

It keeps the water cooler and I love how it feels in my hand.
