Stash Update #7: Star Hot Pad

Hello blog world - long time, no see!

I've learned something about myself this year: evidently I don't do much much blogging in the summer. This is the first week I've really even booted up my computer; I've been busy with outdoor summer activities instead. I'm not saying that is a bad way to be, but it does mean I don't post anything here!

I have been busy taking pictures of things for posts I plan on offering up to you, though, so don't think I've been completely lazy.

Now here, just to get the ball rolling, is a quick Stash-Buster update.

Star Hot Pad

I made this for my Mom this month, using my Sugar 'n Cream cotton yarn (coloured Sonoma, I believe) and following the pattern from FreeCraft Unlimited on Ravelry.

I added in a little loop at a tip though, so it could be hung.

I made it in about two hours, and it was a really simple yet unique project. It ended up weighing just 43 grams. I think I need to start using a larger hook than recommended, because my projects always turn out smaller than expected.

Enjoy the Summer!

So that's all for now! I'm going to get back to the offline world. Hope everyone is having a great summer so far!
