Hi, all! This is Adrian, but I'm posting for Robyn (check sidebar for link).

This is the first swap I have taken part in. It has been great fun watching as the group tested out different patterns, chose their colours, etc if not a little scary – who knew there could be performance anxiety for crochet! As I started to test out some problems I realised that I had a problem. My grandmother taught me to crochet when I was younger, but I lived in Australia then. All the patterns I tried didn’t look right and it took me a while to realise that the same terms mean two different stitches in Australian and American patterns! I finally settled on my Pattern (Felted Colourful Coasters from the Coats and Clark website). I added a few rounds and skipped the felting. I was going to crochet a plain back but liked the concentric circles on the back so they may be better suited as hot pads for your table than to take hot pots out of the oven. I had a lot of fun and can’t wait to see what pot holders come my way!
