Up until I made the Hot Stuff Trivet did you know that I used one of the two pot holders we have to put my hot items onto to protect my counters? It is fine and dandy when I only have one pot or dish, but when I have multiple items coming out of the oven at the same time (like on holidays) things can get a little dicey.

I don’t recommend using the Hot Stuff Trivet as pot holder though. I don’t think that it is thick enough to protect your hands from the dishes right from the oven.

The Yarn

Remember back in July 2020 when I released the Frosting Collection? I had purchased the cone of Lily’s Sugar ‘n’ Cream to make sure I had enough yarn to make all the dishcloths. I’m still working through the cone! Why go out and buy more cotton yarn when I have plenty left over.

I don’t have a whole lot more left to go before I’ve used it all. I saved myself a lot of money by buying it the way I did. If you plan on making a lot of items using cotton, I recommend buying a cone of it.
