I'm in a Potholder Swap - got talked into it by Karen (BrooklynIrishGirl on Ravelry) because so many of the ladies who joined wimped out. You just can't leave a friend hanging mid-air like that, so of course I agreed to join.
This is the beginning of a potholder for someone who didn't get the ones she was suppose to get. I'm an Angel. :o) HAH! Mom would laugh at that one! Well, at least I'm being an angel to Shelby.
The white portion was a small coaster I bought at JoAnn's - 99 cents! I never used it as a coaster - or anything else for that matter - so thought perhaps I could use it as the basis for the potholder I'm to make. I think so far it looks pretty good! I just made up rows as I went...if it didn't work out for the first corner I turned, I'd go back and add or take away stitches. What I didn't do is write down the pattern, so this will be my one and only! Sort of like a one of a kind painting by a famous painter....;o)
I still have to back it, and might go down and buy something made for hot pads or ironing boards, then border the two together. Or, I might just do a pattern from a book or from Ravelry for a hexagon and use it as the back portion. Probably the latter as I don't really like to get out of the house much. Isn't that weird......love staying home.
So, my dear friends, how do you like it so far?
