Squiggly Hotpad Is Finished!

OK, here is my progress.
I corrected the curling problem by making the grid rounds looser.

Front and Back
The grid is 23x23 and measures 6".

I want to add a border around it in sc for a more finished look.


Here is the finished product!!!

Front and Back

I will be giving it to my sister tomorrow.
Let's hope she likes it!

Squiggly Hotpad For My Sister

This is a work in progress. It is my attempt at a hotpad for my sister. Her mother-in-law made one, it is really old, and my sister asked me if I could dupciate it. I didn't have a pattern, but after studying it, I told her I would give it a try. So here is my attempt...

This is the thread I'm using. So far it's a grid of 13x13 and measures 3". As you can see from the back, it's curling around the edges. I don't know if this will correct itself when I get closer to finishing it.

The front looks very crowded, but I don't remember if this is the way it's suppose to look. But I will continue on.

I'm hoping that by putting this here it will inspire me to finish it. It has been a UFO for quite some time.

It's Official!

I dropped off my fair entry today. Today was the last day to drop off entries, and at the time I dropped mine off I was the only entry in the catagory I had chosen. I hope there are other entries, I don't want to win a ribbon by default because I was the only entry. And my whole purpose for entrying was to see how well I compare with others. I also found out today that the judging is in three days!

I really liked the way the blanket turned out. I think all the stitches were consistant. I think I hid all my yarn joinings well. Now I just have to wait to see what the judges think.
