A tiny little thing. I'm excited for the challenge of putting all these squares together, but also kind of frightened as well!
I know I've been really bad about blogging my squares on time. This July has been crazy busy with tons of trips and entertaining out of town guests. I just can't keep up. I'm making the squares on time though. I guess that's all that matters, right? I'm trying to at least get them up on flickr the day of, so you can always look there to see the most recent squares. I really think things are starting to slow down and I can have my schedule back.

I love African Mandala squares! They are just too pretty. I also really enjoy this pattern. It's super easy. I have to say my favorite cotton yarn right now is the knitpicks simply cotton. It is just soo soft and easy to crochet with. I wish I had more of it.

I had issues with this pattern. Thankfully, it turned out really cute, but not without a little cussing. When I made the pattern as written. I ended up with a coaster. Cute but not what I was looking for. So I used a bigger hook, added some more rounds and ended up here. I had to block it, but it's working. Sheldon asked if it was a Spiderman web potholder. Gotta love him.

They just keep getting better! Last night, my friend Levi suggested I make the grape potholders. I wasn't sure what he was talking about so I went looking. I assume he meant something like this but when I saw this pattern I had to make it. You all know how much I love the popcorn stitch!
Yarn Used: Sugar and Cream Cotton Yarn in Yellow, Rose Pink, Jute, Robins Egg Blue , Tangerine, and White.
This potholder is my reason for doing potholder week. It's just as perfect as I dreamed it would be! However, I must say Sugar and Cream yarn is the bane of my existence as a crocheter. I hate it so much. It doesn't feel good to crochet (or knit) with and it hurts my wrists every time I use it. I went and got some I love this cotton from Hobby Lobby tonight to use the rest of the week.

This one's name loses any sense after my color changes. Oh well, it's still a pretty square. I did have a few problems with this one puffing up in the center so it did need a good blocking to lay flat.
