For this piece I used the garter stitch rib pattern. We lost the label for the yarn, so my big sis tested it with FIRE! it smelled really bad, but when she was done the burn test revealed it was in fact wool. I had never used this pattern before, but I think it turned out really well!

Here's my hot pad!
(Golly, doing this reminded me why I no longer handknit with big needles and thick yarn! Ouchy ouchy hands!)

Yarn is mostly odds and ends from unraveled sweaters, wool by burn test and by the fact that it felted.

Fulled trivet is 10” across at the widest edge, and was more than 10” before fulling.

I knitted a moss-stitch hotpad!
I was able to use up the last of a nice green wool yarn from my stash.

I knit a slightly large hot pad at the PTJ event!  Apparently it's possible to put slightly more material on a needle than you think.  So I basically made a short scarf in the wrong direction...

To complete this Badge Bit, you must:
  -  Post a picture of your wool yarn and needles or crochet hooks
  -  Post a picture of your hot pad in progress
  -  Post a picture of your completed hot pad
  -  Unfelted, it should measure about 10 by 10 inches (If you felt it, it will end up smaller, and that's okay!)
