I am going to do the yoke in a different stitch—but I am not quite sure which! I keep looking for the one that speaks to me.
It's really is a cost effective way to shop. A half gallon of low sodium soy sauce is the just a few cents more than 2 8 ounce bottles—so its like buying 2 at full price and getting 6 more bottles for a nickel a piece. The trick is to have some nice, conveniently sized bottles to decant the larger ones into.
Some times I just recycle a bottle (I had bought some small bottles soy sauce before I found a source for the bigger (and cheaper per ounce) half gallon bottle. I know that Bed Bath and Beyond sells lovely bottles—at $4 to $5 (empty!)--and so do Michaels and ACMoore (occationally) at close to the same price.
This bottle is a nice size, (16 oz/500ml) and costs a mere $2—Plus I get the cider, too! I like the bottle enough that I might just go and buy another bottle of cider--and get a second bottle. I will add a fancy label to the bottle once I empty it... It will be pretty, and functional (and a bargain, too boot!).
Best of all the bottle is perfectly plain. I have recycled some similar bottles that were beer bottle, and these have embossed brand names in the glass...Which just isn't as nice.
