Water bottle holder

In need of summer-time knitting projects, I decided to try some water bottle holders. First I knit one in maroon cotton yarn with a very basic lace stitch. It looked good, but the strap stretched out with that cotton yarn.

So I decided to try making a felted version. The one pictured here is my first effort - Yarn is Cascade 220. I like it, except that it's a little too loose at the top, so the next one I made (sent to my dad), I put some decreases in the last circular rows, and it turned out better.
