Crochet: 2 Swatches Finally Got Together and Tied the Knot, a Potholder

Tunisian & Regular Crochet Swatch Potholder

Hello! I am a very busy bee/nose-to-the-grindstone this week, trying very hard to keep on track of getting at least some of my January goals accomplished after all this sickness!

And I have the whole house to myself today – really excited!  (Joe’s varying schedule and boys sick at various times means this is happening for only the second time this whole month!)

I finished this potholder during my week off of the computer.

Tunisian Crochet Potholder

It’s definitely a “Finally Finished!” sort of project. I did the Tunisian Crochet swatch last February…

Finally a Potholder

…and, ah…did the yellow stitch in August 2010! So yes, very happy to have it done and in use. 

(With yet another, possibly pointless, conversation/lecture to the boys about the difference between a potholder and a dishcloth….)

I’m very much on a tear to get lots of WIPs finished and it’s wonderful. I plan to make it continue!

Off to work. Lots and lots of photo taking for a Things Bright Vintage shop update and basement organizing. What are you doing today?

p.s. As with most of my swatch projects, they are merely the colors on hand, but I have gotten much grief over them from the Ohio State and Michigan State fans in the house. Never mind that they are my university colors.

That’s so cool! Oh, and you won’t hear any griping from me about the color scheme — they’re my university colors as well (both undergrad and MA — neither of which was U of M)!

I also really liked the lacy layered backdrop! :)

Thank you, Pam! It’s the color of both my uni’s, too, so I’m good. ;) The backdrop is doilies I’ve layered for a background for my vintage shop photos.
