I'm pretty behind in uploading photos to flickr. Here's the first of the lot - my swap potholders! These took me waaaay longer than they had any right to.
I used the Circle of Friends Square pattern, then added another repeat and hexagon-ed it. The lighting in these photos suck - the purple isn't nearly as dark as it appears here.
I was kind of bummed that I didn't make myself one last year (yet I'm completely unmotivated to crochet one now) so I made six this year and kept one for myself.
Oooh I forgot to mention - I used Araucania Ulmo for most of them and it's great to crochet with. One of the purples was a leftover ball of Jo Sharp Soho Summer and crocheting with it was awful - so splitty! I might buy a bunch of the Ulmo in blue for a blanket for me.
