BAWK hot water bottle cover

I needed a quick knit to take my mind of socks (my poor sweater is not feeling the love right now). So I made this:

I've had the pattern booked marked for a while and finally made it. The other night I woke up in the middle of the night with the wickedest crick I've ever had in my neck and filled up the hot water bottle and grabbed a towel to wrap it in and went back to bed. That morning was when I decided it was finally time for the BAWK. In case you didn't click on the pattern link and are curious, BAWK = Bottleneck Avenger Who's Knit.

Personally, I'm not going to sew up the bottom, it's a bear trying to insert the bottle in through the neck like the pattern states. Besides which, I love how it looks like a little turtleneck sweater!

Such a cool pattern! Nice job! I think I've seen that with perhaps a button at the bottom?
