This Easter my family got invited to dinner for the holiday which absolved me of many of my holiday duties, but left me with a small quandary: what to give as a hostess gift?
Knowing that anyone who entertains could probably use potholders, I got out my vintage Classic Elite Waterspun felted roving (approximately a DK weight), a 6.5 mm hook, and using Square C-1 of the Better Homes & Gardens Granny Sampler as a foundation upon which to build:
I got to work.
Following the directions I had written from my previous adventures with this project, and with a few modifications, I had, in short order, finished crocheting both potholders that I had hoped to give my hostess:
Unfortunately, we were due to leave the house in just over an hour, and the potholders were still in need of felting.
Working diligently and with a laser-like focus (as well as accepting my husband’s offer to turn the crank of my hand-turned washer in which I do all the felting) I was able to get the potholders done (except for drying) just in time:
The dinner was lovely, and I hope that when the potholders dry, my hostess enjoys using them as much as I enjoyed making them.
