potholders :: just the beginning

In this post I want to say a big thank you to Kathy Ann for such her great work to pair us for the potholder swap !
I'll be very happy to work for Britta, and surprise her in the mail during the first week of December.
I made my first potholder last week (not for this swap or I wouldn't show it, of course !) from a shiny cotton (the main color is actually a nice grey not blue-ish, but my camera lens is broken & fussy when it comes to get a decent picture).
I believe cotton makes the most convenient (& safer in the kitchen) potholders, what do you think ?
The pattern is from this book.
Have a lovely week ! It almost feels like Fall here in Western France and I look forward to cozy crocheting evenings !


  1. Very nice potholder..the color is lovely!

  2. This is so, so beautiful! The colors & design of your potholder are incredibly subtle and gorgeous!

  3. Hi!

    I didn't know you were France... :-) One of these years we may visit there... Another place to visit after retirememt...

    After all of these years I have not made pot holders. But these are pretty...:-)

  4. How beautiful! I can't wait to se what you'll make for me :-)

  5. This is gorgeous! Thanks for posting it!

  6. thank you, ladies !
    Britta : I'm working on it ! i'm selecting the yarn at the moment... suspense ;P
    Susan : like me you don't have any email available, but in case you need any info or want to chat, I invite you to contact through the ink "contactez l'auteur" on the top right of my blog pages. This is exciting and I hope you'll have a a great time here in our country :)

  7. That is so beautiful, I'm not quite sure though how you could use it as a pot holder...way too nice!

  8. This is so lovely, I would love to be able to make one of these
    sooo beautiful, is it in cotton?

  9. trixi : blushing !
    but it's made for use
    miss prudence : it's in cotton, and no doubt you can !

  10. I just wish I could read Japanese! I looked up the pattern book and can only find it in Japanese...ho hum!

  11. not sure how to reach you by mail...
    (but I tried to send you an email)
    no need to read japanese, all japanese crochet books have diagrams (which are great because an international language !)no written explanations to read...
