I finished my potholders for the swap last week!! They are labeled, packaged and ready to go to the post office tomorrow.
Pattern: ha wish i could tell you the name of the book but it’s Japanese but the ISBN is 978-4-8347-2524-7 It is all crochet and very cute 🙂 this page has some pics of inside the book
Made for: Crocheted Potholder Swap
Dates: May 2009-i kept trying different patterns that when i finally figured out what i wanted to do i didn’t even make note of when i started i just wanted to make sure i got it done in time.
Yarn: Lily Sugar’n Cream in Hot Pink, Hot Orange, Wine, Jute, White, Bright Navy, Hot Blue, Summer Splash
Hook: H/8-5.00 mm
Notes: I didn’t follow the pattern completely. The back and front pieces differ slightly. I made mine both the same. Also it has a rose in the middle of the front and i decided not to do that. Was a nice pattern to work and easy to follow the chart. Making these potholders has kinda grown on me and so has the crocheting. i want to make more 🙂 I hope they are well received by the swappers that get one.
How was everyone’s Memorial Day? We went to the marsh and had a picnic. After we stuffed ourselves we walked around the marsh to burn off some of the treats we had 🙂
On our walk we saw some young-one of my favorite things about spring at the marsh.
Lots of them
So cute! I usually go right at the start of spring so you see them when they are really little but it was neat to see them when they are a bit older and bigger.
Some Swan babies as well
After trekking for quite some time on the horse trail we came across some people on horses and one of the gentlemen in the party let Little Man get on his horse! Even shared his cowboy hat.
How cool is that? My future cowboy did awesome on the horse and doesn’t he look so sure of himself on there. Haha, too bad we didn’t get a picture of his face when the horse actually moved a little.
Finally just towards the end of our walk we came across a straggler on the path
The turtle was just as interested in us as we were in him. When we moved a little he moved as well. Probably to keep on eye on us. It was a really nice walk and the weather was perfect. And even though it’s hard to tell with Little Man, i think he had a good time too.
Hope you all had a nice weekend.
