Playing With Cotton Yarn

Having completed four cotton place mats (& not having enough yarn to make a fifth) I decided to play around a bit, making some plant pads.

I’m going to make some more to use as hot pads for the few times we actually eat at the table!

These designs are from Beyond the Square Crochet Motifs: 144 circles, hexagons, triangles, squares, and other unexpected shapes,
which is my new favorite crochet book. I made this baby doll blanket from Miss Munchkin from one of the motifs shown in the book.

It has given me many ideas for so many projects!

    Oh, those are way too pretty to put under plants 🙂

      Thanks! I made up a couple of hot pads, but then put them in the mail to my Mom for the Hayes Reunion Annual Auction. And now I can’t find any more of that color yarn at the local wal-mart! Oh no!

    oh they are pretty – love the colours. Hope you find some more of that yarn.

      I am going to have to order it directly from the company, as it appears most businesses are no longer carrying it. I have tried a couple of other color combinations, but that Sea Foam one is definitely my favorite so far.

    Very pretty and I love how you are adding beauty to every day things.
