Potholders Anonymous

My name is Crystal and I can’t stop making potholders!

In my last post, I mentioned that I couldn’t find quality-made potholders in the stores, so I decided to make my own.

Who knew they’re as addictive as potato chips??? (I sure didn’t!) 😉


It all started out innocently enough . . .

I finished the one you saw “in progress” last time.

And then I made another.

Next, I found a pattern for a nice thick one (with a pretty ridged design), and decided to give it a go.

And before I knew it, I was beginning another – with a rainbow color scheme!

Since then, I’ve bought enough cotton yarn to make several more. They’re so fast and easy – great to work on while watching TV – but I have a question…

Just how many potholders does one kitchen need?

I may have to set some aside as Christmas gifts.

Christmas gifts finished in April?

Now, that will be a first!



I’d love to hear your thoughts!
