Forgotten Little FO's

I did have some FO's, I just hadn't posted them. Little things, no biggies. I was in the potholder swap at Crochet Depot. This is what I sent (minus one of the fulled potholders because I forgot to take a picture).

Fulled potholders (I think I already posted these)

Origami Hot Pad
- made larger and I used a bone ring for hanging. This pattern slightly differed from the Mielke's pattern and I preferred it to that one.


I also made two hot pads. One is the "Spiffy" CD Hot Mat, the variegated one. I loved this pattern and the only change I made was that when it was completed, I used the yarn and loosely sewed around the CD so it did't slide. Now I know what I am going to do with all those "Try AOL free" cd's I get in the mail. This was super quick and I'm making some for Christmas presents.


Lastly, using Wheelsburst Hot Pad pattern. I made this using a K hook and some of the discontinued Lion Thick Cotton. I had a few skeins of this and couldn't figure out what to do. It's very thick and cordlike. This made a decent size hotpad, very sturdy, and worked up fast.


I liked the pattern so much, I used regular Sugar N Cream Cotton yarn, doubled up and used an L hook, and made two cushy doily-type thingies for under the lamps on my nightstand (no upclose pic, maybe later, but a kind of distant pic of it in action)


Every pic is clickable-so you don't strain your eyes looking under the lamp (LOL)

HUH! Who'da thought those AOL CDs would ever come in handy for anything. Cute potholders and hot pads, and great idea for using that under your lamp too.

To think that I've thrown those darn CDs out by the handful!

Great job on all of the potholders and hot pads!
