Here is a view of the placemats just finished. I am so critical of my work, but when I am looking at them so close; then when I see them on a picture, I see how Kool they look. I am still working on other stuff which is not that hard to do. I just was so excited to have this done in time for the holidays. If you want the pattern, let me know, I can email it to you.
My hands have been pain free thanks to the rotating of the time of doing these fun projects.
I believe that I mentioned the fact that I was getting myself very deep into Tunisian Crochet Stitch, the following pot holder companion is in such stitch. This one that I just finished is in a row of sc, dc, alternating for 25 rows, the edging is a simple crochet edging with 3 sc in each corner.As you can tell I am working on my presentation as well LOL. The texture of the material is very nice and the look is exactly what I was hoping to achieve. Function, form and visually pleasing items. Given the fact that it is acrylic caution has to be used. It is not a piece of fabric that you can put a sizzling pan on, but rather something to protect the dinner table or counter top from being scratch or warped by some hot plate. I believe it will be able to hold a pyrex from the oven without worries about melting.
I am just featuring the texture of it here, when I am done with the pair that matches it, I will display them side by side.
This christmas style pot holder is in Tunisian Crochet by itself with a sc edging on it, it is basically 100 % cotton. Tunisian Crochet is a very interesting style stitch. I can see making a sweater in this stitch. I will need a lot more practice and this gives me that opportunity.
Thank you for the opportunity of being able to share my craft with you. Live long and prosper!
