I'm sure that right about now you are wondering what the heck these are, aren't you?? They are kitchen towel rings:
You loop them over your oven door, then put your kitchen towel through the ring part at the bottom! They take no time at all to make, and are so useful. I found the pattern on Ravelry, it is just called "Basic Towel Ring." The pattern says to make a loop of yarn around your hand to make the part for the hole, but I tried that and it is not very sturdy. That's when the plastic ring idea hit me. If you don't have plastic rings on hand, maybe try an elastic hair band instead.
I am having some friends over this Sunday for a Girls' Craft Day (we'll just hang out and do crafts together) so thought I would make one of these for each of my guests. I used Sugar N Cream for the blue/purple one, Peaches & Creme for the multi-colored one, and Hobby Lobby's I Love This Cotton for the beige one. Once again, I love their yarn... the cotton is sooooo soft and just glides through your fingers as you work. I've got a few more of these to make, but wanted to share the pattern with ya'll in case any of you wanted a quick project.
I've finished my sunny squares for Sue as well, so I'll probably post pics of them tomorrow so I can get them in the mail. That's it for now... hope to see you tomorrow!
