This is the potholder I sent to January's MOM. I got the idea for this one from this potholder and I've seen a few floating around on flickr. It's a super easy one to make, just make 4 solid squares and stitch them together. I love the way this one turned out, the colors together are really nice.
This one is called Vintage Kitchen Trivet, it's from the book Crochet Adorned. This is another fun pattern, I love how the back color peeks through! I've already got plans to make one for myself soon. I made this as an extra to send to a swap partner who didn't receive all the potholders she was supposed on her month. I looked on her ravelry page before making this to figure out what colors to use and I ended up picking her two favorites! It was well received, it makes me very happy when I can make someone else's day.
