Potholders: received

Thank you, guys, for the Budgie love :). I really love this little sweater, and feel it was totally worthwhile to write up the pattern for everyone to enjoy.

But now, onward! I feel like I have a huge backlog of finished projects to share with you! I'll try to go through them in somewhat quick succession because the details will get very dark and murky if I wait too long :).

Let me start by showing you the absolutely phenomenal potholders I received in the 2010 Potholder Swap (on Ravelry, on Flickr):


You know, people are so talented. Each one of these is a little work of art, and I love love love them!

Top row: Circle of Friends Square potholder by kelp!, and Snail Shell potholder by Color & Texture.

Bottom row: pane from a vintage bedspread by NJStacie, Lacy Potholder from a Japanese book by Maritza, and roqua squirrel by Maryse.

Huge thanks to the organizers, and to the talented ladies who crocheted my potholders!

Of course I wondered where the five colorful nuggets of goodness that I crocheted ended up, and I was able to track all of them down! Acid green and bright blue went to Maryse, the orange and dark blue one went to Bertha, the red and light green one went to Stacie, the magenta and cloud gray one went to Jenn, and the dark purple and coral one went to mamajanagreen. I hope you enjoy them!

I now have ten potholders total - five from this year, and five from last year - and I think that's enough to start a little display in the kitchen!

Gorgeous! I love your potholders. They are so beautiful.

I LOVE my Grumperina potholder!! Blorange is one of my favorite color combos! I can't wait to hang them all on my wall! You also got an amazing selection!!

I covet that squirrel!

All of them are wonderful, but the purple one has such a wonderful combination of colors. If I had a sweater that used those colors for a colorwork yoke, I'd wear it all the time -- one more thing to add to my daydreams of future knits!

I love the squirrel one!

What great work you all did!

They're all so cute, but the squirrel one is especially awesome!

I love the talent and love that fellow crocheters/knitters are able to bring into each other's lives. Beautiful.

Oh, they're all great!!

I just stumbled upon this website in regards to synthrapol. Spinners use synthrapol to clean oil, dirt, and grease from the wool before dyeing. It is also used to remove sizing and wax from new fabric before dyeing, painting,or printing it.
Loved your investigation of the synthrapol as well as vinegar.

Wow! Beautiful socks.
