Hi I'm new to here, but I'm definitely not new to crochet.  I was sooo happy when The Happy Hooker came out.  I <3 it, one of these days I will manage to crochet every pattern in this ab. fab book.  This is the first time that I have used this technique before so without further adieu here is my FO

Great job on this!  I really like the colour combo.  I'm thinking about trying this pattern too, but I don't use potholders so it would seem like a waste of effort. 

Did you see the post of the person who turned this into a purse??  I think I might try this too.

 I've never tried this technique before either.  Was it difficult?

I have dreams of completing every pattern in the book too. Tee hee.

I saw that purse and thought someone beat me to it!  I was thinking about doing that as well.  Except mine would be a man purse, I was think of a messenger bag or something. 

As for the technique, it's so simple you hold the yarn that you are currently not using crochet over it on the wrong side.  I haven't perfected it yet, but I am making a few more of these for friends that I'll have it looking really good in a couple more tries.
