Crochet Motifs

by Kate on March 21, 2012

I have been a little time poor of late and as a result, craft time has been virtually non-existent.

However, try working in a store that stocks such beautiful materials, I just want to sit on the couch and crochet.

Not at all conducive to writing a paper that is due next week.

The Trio

Anyway, these potholders are perfect for a quick craft fix, I get to play with colour and try out some new patterns without investing a lot of time.

The Debbie Bliss cashmerino aran is lovely to work with, so soft. Although, if you are going to be using the potholders I would suggest working in cotton.

Sarah is working on a little ‘yarn wall’ installation at the shop and these guys will be included, such a great way to showcase colour and the different types of yarn available.

Right in time for the cooler weather.

Have a great week x

Project details can be found on Ravelry.

Oh, can’t wait to see photos of that installation, complete with these lovely pieces. I have had my mind on pot holders and tea cosies of late. Must be the cooler weather and the addiction to cups of tea…
