I have neglected to post about the very fun Potholder Swap held by helloyarn and Adrian. Back in March they put out a call for people to sign up for a swap. Each participant was to crochet 5 potholders of the same design (varying colors OK) & send them in. At the end of the swap, 5 new potholders from various participants would be mailed out to each person.
Here are my potholders that I made & sent in:
Pattern: from this book
Yarn: elann Sonata in many colors!
Mods: many, both to meet swap specs & to make functional. Details here.
I sent off my potholders on May 15th. So, the deadline passed on June 8th, and I received my swap potholders this week! Here is what I found when I got home on Tuesday:
Starting with the green one on the left & going clockwise, they are from: Erin M, Jenny, Bertha, flintknits, and colorandtexture.
I love them! What a fun swap!
