Potholder #3

Here is the 3rd Potholder of 5 for the 2010 Potholder Swap. Cornflower Blue, Country Blue Twist, and White are the colors. I am finally using up some of my cotton stash for this project. I love cotton yarn, it is so soft and so easy to work with. I had forgotten how beautifully this yarn works up. I will post the final finished potholder later this evening!

Perfectly Perfect Pink Purse

Just a small clutch for Girly Essentials!! Made with 100% cotton worsted weight yarn, and measures 6 inches high by 9 inches wide. Crochet button closure. Very easy and simple, the pattern can be found on the Lion Brand free pattern website. I have just been working on this a little each evening over the weekend and after work. This worked up fairly quickly and I will be making more for gifts this Holiday Season! You could modify this very easily to just a coin purse or eyeglass case!!!

Sweet Kitty!!

How can you not love this? Mr Kitty playing in the laundry basket. It never fails, I go in the laundry room and he jumps in the basket! He actually tipped himself over he got so frisky. He is really quite the character!!

My New Pretty Potholder

I have put my Crochet Sock Monkey on hold. I have been having trouble with his little face, and in order to preserve my work (this means not throwing him in the trash) and to save my sanity I have set him aside for the time being. I will finish him, I will finish him, I will finish him. Okay, I feel better.

So I have taken a potholder break. I discovered a new color palette from Lily Sugar N Cream called Country Colores. They are just beautiful! The pattern is called "Tried to Look Pretty Potholder" I found it on the internet. This potholder is made in Country Yellow, Country Red and Barnboard Twists. I just love 100% worsted cotton yarns!! So soft and yummy!! I hope you like it!!! Click on the highlighted link above to take you to the pattern source.
