swap potholders

I did another small swap on ravelry. This one was a Thanksgiving Swap in the Vanna's Choice group, we were supposed to send 3 hotpads to our partner.

fall mandala potholder

I made one of my favorite kinds of potholders using the granny mandala pattern. This one is my favorite out of the set, it was really hard to give up!

fall hexagon potholder

I made a hexagon potholder also, this is always a fun one to make. I think I need to start using a bigger hook though, this one turned out a little small. I've had emails a few times about how to put this kind of potholder together, so I took some pictures while I was making this one, I'll be posting it next week sometime!

My partner said she had a blue kitchen, so I made her a blue potholder, hopefully it works with her kitchen! I used the scalloped potholder pattern for this one but changed the edging, I made picots at the top of each fpdc. I really like how it worked out.

I also sent along a dishcloth to match the blue potholder, I sent the blue one that was supposed to go out for the Annual Dishcloth Swap. I managed to forget to actually mail the package, so I missed out on that fun.

ps: the 500 follower giveaway is coming up this weekend!
