Completed project 5 – potholder/heat pad/table protector

potholder heat pad

Tadaaah! My latest finished project. A potholder or heat pad, or replacement for a trivet, call it what you like (so long as it’s respectful!). Lidl are selling packs of cotton yarn at the moment, and so I bought a pack in this colour and also in a bluey-green colour.

I found the pattern on Ravelry (my new second home!) and it crocheted up with no problems at all in less than a day. A nice little project to make me feel as if I’m achieving something!

  1. that’s really pretty, very colourful. Did my Lidl top tip come in useful then?

  2. Thank you very much, and it did, I was just too late to get any new crochet hooks :-(. Ah well, win some, lose some!

  3. Oooh I wonder whether there’s any left at my local Lidl? Is it a current offer?

  4. Yeah, I only bought it yesterday, although it started last Thursday I think, so supplies might be running out. You can find out what offers are on in your local Lidl if you look on their website ( I think the offer was 6x50g balls of the cotton for about £4.88 – something like that! They have huge balls of dk wool at the moment in mine as well. Worth a look!

  5. That looks amazing. Congratulations on the finish.

  6. Thank you very much! I’ve already started the next one; same yarn but different design. I’m experimenting now though, always interesting!

  7. this is absolutly gorgous!

  8. Thank you, stitchesandknits – people who compliment me are always welcome here! 🙂 I’ve made another one, and I hope to post a picture of it later. Same yarn but different design.
