Christmas gifts I made - trivets
These are simple to make & a very practical gift! I use mine every day. Since wool is insulated, the heat doesn't come through. One of my favorite uses for these is holding a hot bowl of soup on my lap while on the computer or couch without having to worry about getting burned. I used a pie tin as a template for the circles, and pinking shears to cut, then sewed them together, & added a loop for hanging up.
Obviously these are not trivets, but I wanted to sneak it in somewhere. I made this hat & mittens set for a friend's baby that just turned one. I was really happy at how it turned out.
