Thanks again to everyone who participated in this year’s Potholder Swap. I spent most of today napping, recovering from yesterday’s fun and hilarity, and admiring the delightful potholders I got in the swap. As I said yesterday, we were inundated with so many gorgeous potholders. It was hard to choose from so many beauties. I managed though.

This snail potholder from Evonne just blew me away with its tremendous cuteness. And it’s teal on one side and pink on the other – LOVE!

I also got extremely lucky and received wonderful potholders from my co-hostesses and from little loops, who by the way, sent us the most hilarious note with hers. I admit, I kinda bit it as far as crocheting potholders for all of them. I hang my head in shame now. After crocheting my five, I started on another four, but I had such a serious case of clawhand (or to be precise, my CT was causing me so much pain & discomfort) that I just couldn’t do it. I was able to get three fronts and backs done before admitting that clawhand had won and there was no way I would be able to join those fast enough without seriously hurting myself. I do intend to finish them off and send them to my fabulous co-hostesses at some point in the near future, however. In the meanwhile, I at least had some softies to present them which I hope they love as much as I love their potholders and this awesome bag Stacie made:

Tomorrow, I will take down last year’s potholders and rearrange all of them (this year’s and last year’s) in a carefully curated display of crocheted loveliness. Can’t wait to see them all up! I will post photos as soon as that’s finished.
