Recycled cotton hotpads

So while the world was enjoying two 80+ degree days in a row (in March??), I was inside feeling achy and taking my temperature. I managed to catch some kind of bug that came on really fast and made me extra whiny, given how beautiful it was outside.

Anyway, I kept my hands busy by crocheting these cute little hotpads with two colors of recycled cotton yarn I had randomly bought a while ago. I put an orange strand and a red strand together, then crocheted 25 hdc stitches into a square.

Fortunately, I had enough yarn for two, so I got a set I can use next time I have company.
