I wanted to give this post a touch of Less Is More aesthetics. But I guess I'm failing big time because of the number of pics alone. Ah well!
This placemat and potholder are supposed to have an air of Japanese minimalism. Just so you know. ;-)
The placemat is made of simple double crochets - white with irregular intervals of colour.
The potholder is one big granny square, folded round a cotton potholder...
... I whipstitched together the corners at the backside - which is the side I like best.
Don't you just love the bunny? ;-) It's a souvenir from my recent travels.
BTW, what do you think of this ball of bamboo? I bought it ages ago.
It took me at least an hour to wind it from this skein. (As per usual messed up and got it completely tangled.) I love the colours and even the fact that it's variegated, because it's done so subtile... I have a lovely plan for it! To be continued...
I wonder what this week will bring. I personally have not very high hopes for this one. Luckily I can flee in my pastels. ;-)
Full speed ahead, I guess...
