done-donedonedone-dooooonnnnne!

I will sum up my potholder experience in a haiku:

Candy-colored hues
a pretty pattern to make
Ouch! I've got clawhand

So hooray for the potholder swap! Thanks to everyone who participated this year. In a few days, I'll be getting together with Adrian, Maryse, Stacie, and Cheryl to sort and send all the potholders. I can't wait to see everything you folks have crocheted. You are all awesome! Also, huge thanks to Maryse for letting me take a peek at this book so I could crochet these pretties.

Oh yeah, as far as the details go:

pattern: Lacy Potholder from Kyuuto! Japanese Crafts: Lacy Crochet
designer: Sachiyo Fukao
yarn: Aunt Lydia's Crochet Cotton - size 3
needles: Clover Soft Touch steel hook, size 2 (1.5 mm)
modifications: none

I did things a little backwards with this post, but dude, my parents are in town this weekend and I am exhausted. So exhausted I am writing run-on sentences and feeling okay with it. On a blog. On my blog. The horror! Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend!

So beautiful... so so so beautiful! These are fantastic! Hopefully the clawhand is not permanent :).
