Heart to Heart....

I have been into potholders a lot lately.  I found a lovely pattern to make for fun and frolic, and it turned out to be a tad more difficult to put together than I thought it should. The pattern maker is Scandinavian (Carola Wijma) and the translation into English is a little off for the normal way of our doing crochet.  However, she does have a beautiful graph that is of help.  The Ravelry download is called Grandma's Heart.

There are so many gorgeous projects you can make with this pattern, but I wanted another potholder for my DSIL that was bright and fun.

Do you remember ever seeing one of those plant holders you put on the wall that is shaped like a heart?  Rather like sconces. I think if you had a ratty container that is small this would be the perfect cover up to use, sans loop, and have it coordinate with the colors in your room.  I'd think the container would have to be something you can hang easily, then pin this around to the wall or around the container.

Carola has some little purses made and they are just darling! Perfect for a little one to carry when wearing her favorite fancy dress!


  1. That is definitely one of the prettiest potholders I have ever seen. These are definitely faster to join than a blanket, aren't they?

  2. LOVE it . . . will have to check it out and see if I can read the graph . . . haven't read one yet, but this might be the time to try :0}

  3. Those potholders are soo beautiful!
