I finished this last month but waited until it got closer to Halloween to post it.

It's a trivet made from size 10 crochet thread in black and white.
I designed it myself using the same techniques as Susan Lowman and her fabulous crocheted trivets.


I also made a few more trivets.



I had already made this Mondrian colored Peace trivet for myself last year, (left), but when my dog Peace died last month I decided to make another one for my sister using some groovy thread she gave me. So this right one will be hers. I like how the colors look on that one!



I had made this Smiley wiggly already too but after Peace died I was so sad I made this Frowny trivet. It turned out smaller than the Smiley and I don't know why because they are actually the same grid square lengths. Maybe the thread was thicker? Or maybe my stitches were tighter? Or maybe I used a different sized hook? Anyway, it was nice to have something to work on during my grief.



And finally, I made this Green Bay Packers G trivet for my sister too. It was hard to try and make it like their G logo because it has to be in a grid form and, so, not as curvy. I hope she like's it!!!!

These are all wonderful.  I can't pick a favourite.  So sorry about your dog.  I also find that  knitting and crochet are great ways to help with grief.

These are all excellent. I love how the squiggly stitches give such an interesting texture to the pieces without taking away from the overall look. They're very interesting.

You sure do like to craft through your grief, don't you? These are wonderful. The skull is super amazing and awesome and is totally getting pinned.
