Crochetkari: Potholder blues

Potholder blues

Hi friends, Hope you had a good week and are now looking forward to a lovely weekend. And a great new month.

A big thank you to all those who wished my husband. (He was pretty surprised!). This month it is my turn to be happy as my birthday is on the 10th of September. I would love to get a big carload of yarn as my gift but I don't think my husband will take up any "yarny" hints (subtle of course) I will be putting out.

I have a lot of UFOs floating around the house (purses and a doily). Ever since I rediscovered the joys of reading, crochet is on the back burner. But I will get around to them soon. 

On the blogging front I got my blog  under its own domain name

Today I will share these potholders with you, that I made sometime back.

They are extremely easy to make and work up to a nice texture and thickness without too much effort. If any novice or non-crocheter is interested I will readily put up a tutorial, just drop me a line. `

On the reading front, I have finished reading one more book by Mary Higgins Clark.

A fabulous read. Excellent story with every chapter bringing a new twist in the tale. And once again a totally unexpected climax. Just could not put it down. 

Well, now I will leave you to your weekend plans while I go off to decide whether to read or to crochet. Oh, how I wish I could do both simultaneously!

PS: In case you are wondering, UFOs are UnFinished Objects! :)

Have a lovely Sunday. Take care.
Love xxx

  7. Hi! I love how your potholders turned out, both the pattern and the colours.

    Let me apologize for not thanking you for the nice comment you wrote on my website earlier this year. You see, I have to start my stoneage pc to approve the comments, and because of a new DSL connection I needed a new cable to connect the old wreck. Today I got it fixed, and then I saw your nice words. Thanks again! :o)
