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)
