Dazzling Dozen - # 7

Have you ever had a package that, despite your best intentions, kept eluding the mail? I can't be alone in this. It's the bill that you put on the dash board of your car - where it can't be missed - and forget to put a stamp on it. It's the gift in a box that never quite get's sealed. It's the letter that sit's waiting for a key element of the address. Tell me it's happened to you too!

Anyway, this is the potholder that was finished over a month before it had to be sent out and yet, it was sent over a week late and only then because I happened to be passing a post office in NY and decided that even without an accompanying note, it had to go out right at that moment.


On one side this is a simple square with a progression of warm tones in bands of varying thickness.


On the other side its a warmer version of the Patriotic Sunburst from Jan Eaton's book, 200 Crochet Blocks. The yarns were once again a combination of Tahki Cotton Classic and Elann Sonata. Future potholders should be even more colorful because I recently enhanced my stash of Cotton Classic by quite a bit.

Now I need to start the next potholder. Who knows when that will get mailed out.
