Picasso Potholder
My RAOK Picasso Potholder, originally uploaded by plainsight.

Have I ever mentioned that crocheters are some of the nicest people on the planet? the folks over at Crochetville have a thread called Random Acts of Kindess (RAOK) where you can list things that you wish you had, and sometimes, you get them!

A few months ago, there was a thread about this potholder–a beautiful, geometric amazing thread creation–it’s an antique potholder in the crazy cool Potholder Museum.Someone took the time to deconstruct and create a pattern for it which is also on the site.

I wished for one on my RAOK list, and today, my wish was granted! Fran Doreham of Arlington, TX sent me this beautiful potholder which will become the first piece of art to hang in my new kitchen. Thank you Fran!

A wish granted!

    That is a beautiful potholder- Thank you for the link to the museum, too, that was cool. I printed out the Picasso Potholder and the Rocky Mountain High Potholder, too. I can’t believe that someone would want to make 200 potholders… They were beautiful, though! Great blog!
