More Flower Potholders

Remember the potholders I've made for my Mom's birthday in September? She really liked them a lot, so a few days ago, she asked me if I could make two more. No, wait - actually she asked me if I've "coincidentally" got two new potholders lying around. Err... no :) (does anyone of you?)
Next week-end my parents will go to Austria for a little pre-Christmas vacation (they've started this two years ago), and my Mom would like to bring some little gifts, like my potholders, for their friends down there.
I used Jennifer Martin's Flower Potholders pattern again and a thicker cotton yarn this time:

I had exactly these four colors of thick cotton yarn, and maybe they wouldn't have been my no.1 choices if I had a whole range of colors to choose from, but now I think they've turned out quite pretty. I like the blue-ish one, in Germany the color's called "Petrol", but I don't know what it is called in English, the dictionary is no help here ;) Somehow I seem to be drawn to this color, because right now I'm knitting (!) a scarf in a similar shade - I hope I can finish it this week-end :)

  2. I would say the colour is teal. And I wonder why we call it Petrol in Germany - doesn't look a thing like it (colourwise, I mean)
    By the way, the potholders are lush and I like the colour combination a lot

  3. Lovely potholders ... I've never made one but yours could just tempt me to try. Petrol is definitely teal - and that sounds so much nicer!!

    And no, I never have spare things I've made lying around ... I'll be asked the same question regarding bags / purses when my mother-in-law arrives next week!

  13. These are beautiful and unusual, I like the colours too. I would say the blue/green is a deep teal. Petrol, when I last heard the term, was a deep grey blue when I was growing up..a while ago now.

  15. Very pretty! I agree with the others on the color petrol being dark teal. Petrol brings gray to mind for me! Great potholders.
