I'm teaching the Textile Merit Badge to my Troop this month, so I'm trying to get a lot of items prepared as samples. I pulled out my potholder loom and made a few potholders
I picked out colors that would match my kitchen (you know... for after the class)
Then I followed the instructions in the Harrisville Designs booklet for a houndstooth pattern. It's just 2x2 alternating colors for the warp and the weft. Who knew it was so easy? I certainly didn't. And houndstooth is one of my favorite patterns. This is such a wonderful discovery for me.
So there you have it. The potholder is alive and well. You'll probably see me make more of these in the future. They're so quick and fun and bring back such wonderful childhood memories.
