Do you have a staff kitchen at your place of employment? I do where I work and people are constantly pulling hot items out of the microwave and burning themselves. I came across the pattern for these fruity trivets from the Purl Bee and thought they were adorable. And they were exactly what our sad, little staff kitchen needed to brighten it up. I loosely based the potholders that I made on the Purl Bee's pattern. I did not use doubled yarn like the pattern calls for but crocheted with a smaller hook to make them nice and thick. I went for the watermelon and lime slice because those were the colours that I had on hand. Nice, quick summer project.
