Thanks for all of the sweet comments, everyone!  Please let me know what type of soda/beer rings you find that are suitable so that maybe I can make a little list!

Oh and thanks for posting the link to the website...i just made an account and i love it. i cant wait to send some patterns to my Grandma and here craft group:)

Ravelry is really cool!  I don't have many friends on there.  Add me if you want!  Smiley

I'm working on a project now using cotton yarn and will probably have a bunch left over, so this seems like the perfect project for it. Of course, I'll probably have to buy a 6-pack of Bud (and then use it to make beer bread) to get the rings Wink

This would definitely be perfect for leftover yarn.  I want to see what one would look like with two alternating colors for the six rings or even rainbow colors!  I know, I'm trying to come up with excuses to go buy beer!

im thinking purses maybe u could substitute rubberbands for the rings i used them to make stretchy hemp bracelets one time.

I'd love to see what you mean!  Smiley

I don't drink and my mind is turning to figure out what would be round and pliable enough to crochet around!!   I like the rubberband idea.  maybe if I cut out carboard rings?  or maybe fun foam?

This is absolutely beautiful, the color combo is great and I could see this being used as a afghan, as a purse, motifs gosh so many possibilities!

That is quite wonderful!  I may have to dig through mom's stash of cotton yarn.  Mine is almost all acryllic and wool.  I agree that cotton would be better if you wanted to use it as a trivet...  hot pans and acryllic yarn don't mix too well.

I'm going to take a trip to the hardware store this weekend.  Surely there are some kind of plumbing gaskets or something that can be used instead.  I'm not a drinker either, so I'm going to have to figure out a source!  I don't think rubberbands would work because they are not flat circles like the plastic rings.  Cardboard and fun foam would probably work but don't seem like they would be as durable.  I was surprised at how substantial the plastic rings felt!

I know what you mean!  Cotton yarn isn't a large part of my stash either.  I think wool could work though!
