Really--is there anything better than making potholders when you're watching a super bad B movie on Netflix?
I adore this pattern by Claudia Lowman! Fanciful Flower Potholders is one of those patterns that's addictive. . . you can't make just one. And they're so pretty! You just kinda have to sit back and admire your handiwork for each one you make. Then decide which friend is worthy enough to be given such a wonder of cotton to grace his or her kitchen.
I went through this same addictive potholder crochet mania a few years ago. This was before I discovered the magic of B Movies on Netflix and the Syfy channel. The lovely, bright colors of the sturdy cotton yarn. . . set against the backdrop of CGI sea creatures decimating humans. . .just a fantastic combination! And so entertaining! The bad science alone will keep you in giggles.
Man, am I old or what? I'd rather have yarn and a movie on a weekend night!
