For some reason I had an itch to make old school potholders like the ones you weaved when you were a kid. So, last weekend I got a kit and came up with these. I love making them and plan on getting more loops to make some for Christmas presents.

I specifically asked my nephew to make these for me a couple years ago. (Although we had a rough time finding cotton vs nylon which just melts).

These are my favs and I love your patterns. I've nothing so fancy!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

I love these so much! Nostalgic, but way prettier than anything I made as a kid, that's for sure.

Those look terrific! Of course my favourite is the rainbow one, bottom left. They'd make excellent coasters/mugrugs too. Cute!

I love the patterns in them!  Mine were always just a hodgepodge of all the loops available.  Cheesy
