One thing that I’m going to make a more conscious effort in doing this year is to drink more water. I’ve purchased a few more reusable water bottles over the last few months so I always have one clean.
I know that it’s an U.S. thing with having ICE COLD water. There isn’t anything better than drinking water so cold that your teeth hurt. I also don’t get mad when drinking and I get to eat a piece of that good nugget ice. IYKYK – if you know, you know.

I wanted to use cotton yarn so that it can absorb any condensation caused by the ice cold water in the bottles and not make a mess on your tables or desk. I had some Paintbox Cotton DK left in my stash from a previous project.
Using DK weight helped with not adding bulk to the bottom of the bottles that will make it less sturdy. No one likes a cup or bottle that will tip over because the base is uneven.
