I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

Owls can make cute potholders

This is probably a show only potholder, even though you can use it to hold a pot. The eyes are glued and are not crocheted as you can tell. The bow is crocheted as well, and is not fabric like the pattern called for. This pattern if from a leaflet that I bought on Ebay of vintage potholders. The pattern is harder than what I expected, I guess if you use a double strand of yarn instead of making two heads, two bodies, it will be different. I will find out as I create the second potholder, Most likely it will be in brown and natural, or it may be just black,but I am going to use two strands of yarn instead of one.

Some potholder patterns call for three strands of yarn. I guess it is difficult to see if this will help you grab a hot item without transferring the heat. So far the potholders that I have made have never failed me.

So this is my latest creation I will be working on some more later on, there will be some more by the end of the week. Thanks for stopping by.
