The following is a secret WIP. It's a floor mat for my husbands' Bama inspired powder room. I'm using the crochet hounds tooth pattern from the scarf design found here by Kathy Lashley.
(Incidentally, the scarf from which I borrowed the hounds tooth pattern is ADORABLE, might just have to make myself one after I finish this mat).
At any rate it's working up very quickly. After achieving just the right size, (whatever that will be), I will add a crimson border & the Alabama script "A", hopefully. The final step will be to work out some slip resistance. Don't want anyone hurt, especially on game days, as they'd have to wait until the game was over before anyone would deign to tear themselves away from the TV in order drive them to the emergency room. Roll Tide.
Speaking of WIP's, I've got some critters being tested by the wonderful folks from the Testing Pool on Ravelry. One set of designs is actually a collection of fast & whimsical crocheted Christmas patterns. The other is a critter named "Ptolemy the 'eddy". Both patterns are scheduled for an early August release date.
Many thanks to all of you who participated in my July 23rd pattern promotion on Ravelry. It was a great success, I think.
