My first REAL finished project ~ X'mas hot pad :)
This is what I did for Christmas last year, and it is also one of my first finished project since I began to knit. :D I'm totally a newbie, so please if anybody have any suggestions or comments, be my guest, feel free to post it! Thanks a billion (I think I still have to work on the edges)

I had a limited amount of yarn colour and selection cuz that was all my mom could get me from a second hand store, but I am still happy

This is done in double knitting. Special thanks to Amy for her awsome videos! Even though I've invented the pattern by myself, I couldn't have done this without the videos!

I drew this pattern in mspaint.exe, yes, that means the common drawing program that almost every computer has I just drew the graph first and then use the bucket icon thing to put colours in square by square, unless it's a big area of the same colour then I'll use another quicker way just to save time

It was not too complicated, just takes a little time, I know you can do it too!
