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!

Flower Trio Pot Holder

Happy Fourth of July everyone!!!

Well today I am making Pork in Pipian sauce, for those who don't know what it is click on the link PIPIAN . I am also doing my crochet and watching some nice TV on the Sci-Fi Channel.

So here is a potholder of my own design. I got inspired this Fourth of July to make a nifty pot holder. Three flowers with leaves .

The back as you will see below has a raised edged that is to help the potholder be proped from the wall where it will hang, giving the it a raised surface look on the back.

At this time I guess I am experimenting with potholders. I get a lot of ideas from regular crochet stitches. I also get ideas from granny squares and Octagons and simple non square designs.

I have made this potholders with left over yarn making it economical and practical. I guess it becomes me, being a Taurus, it is just natural. There is a red Flower that it is suppose to mimic an anemonae, the yellow daisy and an african violet. I did the center with a blend of black alpaca yarn that is a left over from a long time. Finally I found something to use this las vestige of black left.

Thanks for stopping by and come back again as I will continue to make my 12" INCH Granny Squares and my Pot Holders and Dishcloths. We do have a potholder and dishcloths exchange every month at http://groups.msn.com/crochetdepot . August will be Dishcloth exchange. Come and join in the fun. Until later.
