~ Sharon's giveaway & a potholder ~

Sharon of 'Sharon's Eclectic Retreat' is having a giveaway - you have until midnight tonight, so hop on over and enter for your chance to win.  Good luck.  :)

~~~~~~~~~~~


I was doing some blog hopping yesterday morning and was checking out Stephanie's blog 'Simply Crochet and other Crafts' and found her 'double-sided diagonal pot holder'.  I liked the look of it so I decided to crochet one for myself.  It's a very quick and easy pattern to crochet.  I crocheted it with 1 strand of Creme de la Creme cotton in 'dalmation' and 1 strand of Knit-cro-sheen (sz. 10 cotton) in a medium blue.  I like how it came out - it's got a vintage feel to it.  Thanks for sharing your pattern Stephanie.  :)

  3. I like Stephanie's blog, she has some great patterns. I started making this potholder and am having difficulty figuring out the pattern. I would like to email her about it, but there is no way to contact her that I can see on her blog. It looks very straightforward, but for some reason I am just not getting it! Would you be willing to help me out? It would probably be easier to send you an e-mail with my questions if that is okay? Thanks so much :)

    1. Hi Sandy - I would be more than happy to help anyone out with patterns, but I would prefer it if you could leave a comment to Stephanie first. I would not want to step on her toes. :)

  5. Very vintage looking. I like the idea of the bone ring as the 'holder."

  6. I agree, it does look vintage and I have seen that pattern around somewhere before.
    Yours turned out really nice. I like how you added the blue.
    Have a Happy Easter Debi! (((HUGS))) Susanne :)
