A little bit of this, a little bit of that

My knitting this past week has been composed of a little bit of this and a little bit of that.

Christmas present #3 was completed and given to my dad (3 cotton dishcloths). An accompanying picture was forgotten. (Natch).

Present #2 has a bunch of fiddly finishing work to do, but I'm pretty sure it will get done in time.

I went on a road trip over the weekend and knitted 5 hotpads.

They will be felted. I just guessed on the size, so if I'm wrong and they're too small, I'm going to be wrong 5 times over.

They were easy to do in the car and will be nice to replace my icky ones I currently use.

On my car trip, I also started knitting with my handspun yarn. This is as far as I got.

There won't be enough yarn, so I guess I don't want a scarf. Maybe I want a hat.

Twice I've tried to felt hotpads and twice they've come out extremely wavy. Maybe I'm doing something wrong but I'm looking forward to seeing how yours turn out. :-)

If the hotpads come out felted too small, make them coasters! You can always use coasters!!! :)
