crochet potholder

October 22nd, 2010

Since I crocheted over a stone a while back I’ve been working on little crochet projects here and there.  It’s nice to have a little project to work on for no other reason than it’s enjoyable to do. Crochet can be so odd and sculptural, like this potholder: it looked like some leggy sea creature when I was working on it and then with the last row it suddenly came together and became a beautiful flower with folded petals.  (Here is the ravelry link if your interested in the specs)

I’m not sure if these projects will be gifts or not, but the baby seems to think we’re keeping this one. Crochet can get very crazy, very quickly and this very apparent with potholders for some reason, but these bears are restrained enough to be just the right amount of cute.

Though I failed horriblly at facebook, I’m kind of enjoying twitter. If you would like to listen to me blather on about nothing at all there, I am elsiemarleyblog. Hey, have a good weekend!

    I get an F for my facebook usage. My husband gets an A+. I actually updated my status yesterday to let all my friends know that I do not check in EVER so stop expecting me to know what’s going on. If someone I know has a baby I expect a birth announcement… in the mail! Have fun tweeting.

    I wondered where you went on FB! Sorry it didn’t work out. I have not been a great tweeter at all lately. Those bears really are just the right amount of cute, aren’t they?
