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!

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.

I seriously have no idea what pattern I used for this square or even when I made it. I was sorting through the squares for this blanket, trying to figure out how to lay them out for joining when I found this square and couldn't remember it. I searched through all of my blog posts and couldn't find it. I searched my ravelry queue and I couldn't find it anywhere. So if any of you can pin point what pattern this is, I'll update this post to include the information. I think it might be from 200 crochet blocks but I can't find my book at the moment.
Ok seriously Dana? I had a major brain fart on this one! Thanks to Marianne for reminding me that this is Adahia's pattern, I realized that I made this in the middle of the Granny a Day in May. It's square #111 I just must have forgotten about it because it was the only square I made with this color scheme during May. Ugh. I must be recovering from sleep deprivation or something. The real square #172 coming up now!
