I am going to give away a prize for the "guessing" contest I talked about. The one on "what could I possibly be knitting" out of left-over wool. I was going to give another hint, but ...
I have a winner ... Sandy from sunny California. She was half right and that makes her close enough; she commented
"....could it possibly be a cup/glass cozy with a place mat or hot pad to set the glasses on?"
