Not Persephone Grey

I've just posted this on Ravelry. The pattern for the hot water bottle cover is from Jane Brocket's book The Gentle Art of Knitting and it's easy peasy. Jane has knitted Literary Hotties to match grey Persephone books and orange Penguins. Here's something more lowbrow. It looks orange but is actually bright red; the light is terrible today. The buttons are vintage ones from my stash.

Persephone Grey really ought to be the heroine of something.
Heh, yes!
That's fantastic and would look great on my hot water bottle. The red makes it look so warm and cosy!
Snuggle city!
I really like that! And I love using vintage buttons on new knits.
I wasn't going to buy any if I could help it!
Fab-u-lous!! Love it - super colour choice for the winter too.
Thank you! I'm using it.
Lovely! I love the Christmas-y color.
Thank you! It's certainly a cosy colour.
The two look great together.

I wasn't sure about the Brocket book when it came out, but have come round to it.
Thank you!

If you ignore the Brocket ethos, the patterns are rather fun and gorgeous colours.
I knew you'd find some excellent buttons!
