Needless to say, she is not a happy camper. Her ear was hurting this morning, so I made her a small rice heating pad, just the right size to lay on her ear.
The fleece cover is removable and washable. You microwave the inner rice hot pad separately and then slip it into the fleece cover. Never microwave fleece. Just in case, I'm going to scream that last bit. NEVER MICROWAVE FLEECE!!!!! Sorry about that, just wanted to make sure everyone noticed the whole never microwave fleece part. Moving on.

I loved this set and Grammie did too. We've made her a few pieces of jewelry, as well as hats and scarves and such, over the years and she always makes a point of wearing our gifts and telling us how others like them. This set was a big hit.
Grammie's favorite gift was a Christmas pillow.
Quite simple to make, just two 15" squares of material with a bit of gold ruffle around the edge and stuffed with polyfill. She told me she put away all the Christmas decor, except the pillow, which she is going to keep out for a while. Made me smile.
Hum, Valentine's Day is coming... :)

Well, it's finished! And it only took, let's see, I started it in January after I broke my foot and finished it last October so,... FOREVER. We packed and shipped it just before Halloween to our very special Potter friend Mary along with a first movie Gryffindor scarf. (She sent us three of her handmade ceramic Daleks last year for Christmas. We kept the plumpy one on the left in the front and gave two to friends.)
I understand she wears the Gryffindor scarf all the time, but hasn't quite figured out how to wear a 20+ foot scarf to work yet. Understandable really.
A friend of ours thought this was the best way.
Bit constricting, but warm, definitely warm.
I made a 6" wide, 1/8 scale version for K last October, which was a nightmare of weaving in ends, not fun at all. She wore it to school and a her friends thought it was very cool. Mr. Man wants one he can wear to work. I'm thinking Bond Fashion Knitter! Much less time, double thick and no weaving in ends. Oh yeah, I'm so using the technology on this one.
