littlebiskit, I wanted to hone my crochet and knitting skills this  year, too.   I'd love to know more than one stitch in each.  It'd be great to know how to knit more than just scarves.  Your pot holder looks great.  Thanks for the link to the tut, I'm definately going to give it a try.

I have used that potholder pattern before and its great. I also made some using that pattern but instead of closing it up, I left it opened and added a handle to make a really cute little girl's purse. I will have to try and find the photo but its from last year so I don't know if I still have it.

Everyone is doing great...and I am getting a ton of ideas for using up my stash of stuff. Smiley

Would one have to worry about acrylic yarn melting when it comes into contact with hot cookie sheets and the like?  That was occasionally a problem with some old potholders we had that were made with polyester blend fabric, but acrylic yarn seems like it is made of sterner stuff.  If that's unlikely to be a problem, it looks like an interesting project for all the acrylic yarn that I don't quite have a use for.  I could use a change from charity afghan squares.

Acrylic for potholders? I have heard a lot about it both ways.

When I was growing up, my mom was completely in love with the "new" acrylics - she used them for everything - we had no problems. I made little woven potholders - also synthetic materials - also no problems.

Then I started teaching knitting and the vocal opposition to acrylics started. I used only cotton or wool for potholders for many years after that.

Now? I am rethinking the thing. I have soooo much acrylic yarn, and my kids are all grown up, so YES, I will use my acrylics for potholders. 

I wouldn't recommend letting them stay in contact with a hot surface for too long, or be exposed to an open flame, but for a quick cookie sheet removal I think it would be OK.

All right, I'll give it a shot.  The worse that can happen is some odd fumes.

On completely different note, I like your penguin!

I like yours, too!  Grin Good luck with your potholders. I found a pattern and I may make a few tonight, too.

Some one gave me these very ugly pleated shorts.

I took one look at them and said "hey they would like nice totoros. (i am thinking a totoro themed Christmas tree this year)
I am going away for a couple of days so I am hoping to make them up in the evenings once the kids have gone to bed. Also granny will be there to help entertain them as well.

My sister bought me back this totoro from japan last year. So I'll use it for inspiration.
Hopefully I'll have a whole bunch of totoros to show when I get back! Also a good tan (not likely though, I usually just go red and then peel) Cheesy
