all done!

I'm happy to say that I managed to finish up my potholders for the swap and get them in the mail last Friday. Phew!

potholder swap "a sides"

potholder swap "b sides"

I had to borrow Adrian's idea of displaying her potholders on the clothesline - her photos looked so great!

These were crocheted with DK weight mercerized cotton yarn and a D hook. The back sides are completely different color combinations than the front sides.

This is the snail shell motif from the book Crochet Stitch Motifs - It's an interweave knits harmony guide book. The pattern is on pg 158.

I had so much fun with this swap and I can't wait to see what treats I get in the mail - thanks so much Adrian and Maritza!
