Quickie: Crafting Practicality

I have a hard time finding potholders that I like/go with my kitchen. So, needing a craft, I decided to crochet. Again.
My tension is still a bit wonky (it’s HP weekend on ABC Family, excuse my words please) but that’ll even itself out with practice.
These were crocheted using Peaches N Creme 100% cotton (I small ball at WalMart will make 1, and it’s a little less than $2). You don’t want to use ANY acrylic yarn, because acrylic is plastic. Plastic + Heat = Melt.
Pattern found here. And quite honestly, I won’t be paying for new potholders anymore, unless it’s the supplies to make more of these. These are the BEST potholders you’ll get. They’re double thick (I’ll admit, I struggled with the pattern as a beginner crocheter) so NO heat goes through these babies!
I’m inlove with my potholders.
