Birthday Potholders

Exactly one year ago I've written a blog-post with the same title as today, Birthday Potholders. It's my Mom's birthday again, and I've made a new pair of potholders for her:


Do you like the colors? Okay, me neither :) But at least the colors fit into my Mom's kitchen from the 1970s, and this time the potholders are definitely not meant for decorating the walls, but indeed for using them. My Mom really liked them and she was quite surprised, because she thought she'd only get the blouse that I've bought for her when we were birthday-shopping last week-end.

The potholders are made with the same pattern I've used for my own potholders a few weeks ago. The original pattern can be found on Tintin luomukset.

And now I hop over to The Crochet Boulevard to share my link. It's Free Topic Friday again - wanna come over and link your crochet, too?

Have a great week-end!

  10. Once again, gorgeous potholders. I am definitely going to try them. And I loved this colour combination. I am not surprised that Mom does not use these lovely creations and keeps them as wall decor. I would too. :)
    Love
