March potholders

March is the last month for the potholder swap that I've been participating in all year on ravelry. I'm probably going to take a break from the swaps for a bit to focus on other projects that need to get done. Here are the potholders I made for the last member of the month.

This is the first potholder I've made using black. I like it and if I ever get more black cotton, I'll probably make more potholders with it. I used the super simple hexagon pattern to make this one, I love that pattern, it really is super simple!

The black is by Lily Sugar'n Cream. For the center I used Bernat Handicrafter cotton in cream and a variegated grey/white mix.

I also made a second potholder to send along as a surprise because she had said how much she liked the ones I made before. It's the Tried to Look Pretty potholder.

tried to be pretty in mod blue

I used cream and a new color I spotted while shopping called mod blue. So far I've only found two "mod" colors, I hope I find more because I really like them. Both colors are Bernat Handicrafter cotton.
