Last night before I went to the yarn drawer to choose some cotton to make another pot holder, I made the decision to choose the two colours that jumped out at me and to not spend ages trying to come up with the perfect combination. This purple and green potholder is the result of that experiment. When I sat down with my colours I had no idea what form it was to take, I just started going round and around until it was a flower.
It is quite a bold move away from the red and white but I think I like it.
Thanks so much for the apple pot holder love yesterday. To be honest I almost unravelled half of it before that post because it looked too big and red, but after reading all your lovely comments and adding a new colour into the mix, it is growing on me.
The challenge now is to find a wall to hang them on in a house where we seem to knock down any wall that is not load bearing. I have been wandering around the place vaguely suggesting that children's art work be removed from here or growing calenders from there but have so far only been offered an internal brown brick wall that will look waaaay too seventies covered in pot holders.
Have you entered my giveaway yet?
