I finished these two potholders last night. Aren’t they just cute as can be? Okay, now REALLY look at them — doesn’t the salmon color in one look just a tad more pink than the other one? Yeah, that’s what I thought too!! Even funnier tho — I’ve been crocheting them at night — yes, when it’s dark and watching TV — and I just didn’t notice the color until I took the picture and started tweaking it in my Irfanview software. THEN I saw the difference. Sure enough, I checked the yarn bands and they’re two different dye lots. Oh well — I was going to send them to my sister but I can guarantee you that if I do, she’ll notice the difference before you can whistle Dixie.
Anyway, the pattern is one that I found online on a blog written by a lady by the name of Eva in Norway and I just fell in love with it, so much so that I didn’t notice the dye lots didn’t match!! Mine don’t look quite as finished as Eva’s, but they were great for a first try and I’ll be making more. The yarn that I used was the old faithful Sugar N Cream color Butter Cream Ombre.
If you’d like to take a look at the pattern, here is the address for Topflappen, which I believe is potholder in Norwegian. Thanks for such a great pattern, Eva!!!
