Speaking of place mats
I think place mats started this thread. I'm doing the pattern in this video Knitting Help - Linen Stitch and think it would make really great place mats. I cast on intending to make a dishcloth, decided that 5" wide wouldn't make a great size for one, decided it could be a coaster, but now I'm thinking I'll make long enough to fold and stitch up the sides for a Kindle cover. Both sides look nice IMO. It's amazingly flat. This piece doesn't have much stretch to it. I'm using size 8 needles and Peaches and Creme yarn, Sunshine and a blue w/o a label so I don't know what they call it. Larger needles would make it looser and somewhat stretchier I suppose and would be a good dishcloth.

I got the yarn for a circle cloth and it got hijacked for this.

Yeah, that's easy to do. Try making yourself do it sometime, you might be glad you did.
