  4. Ah, ah ... a 'squircle'. :-)
    Nice one, also the flower mat.
    A rug or mat to make is not a bad idea at all!

  10. Debi! I finally got started on my extraordinary ordinary blanket! Mine is sc with an L hook and it's a bit different but I owe it all to you! I think this will be great to use up smaller yarn balls for my charitable efforts. Wised I could share a picture. I love this idea. Brenda
