African flower potholders
This was just a quick project to use up some of the leftover James C. Brett Cotton On yarn. Also I needed new potholders and this pattern looked pretty. :)

I amended it somewhat from the original pattern because I thought the granny clusters might not provide enough protection when handling hot trays from the oven, so I substituted solid treble (UK) rounds instead.

In other news, I had a good walk with Brith this morning. It was my favourite kind of weather: sunny and bright but not yet too hot and it's still too early in the year for the pestiferous insects to be out and about. (Though I have seen some midges around.)

They look nice and solid and practical. Nice weather here as well. Really I should go out and cut the grass, but I can't help thinking that in a couple of weeks I can probably cut the grass without worrying. Of course by then we'll probably be into weeks of rain!

I've been putting off the grass mowing, but I must make a start today while the weather is fine, especially as I have a new mower to play with. :)

I hope that you'll soon be able take some time to do what you want instead of having to squeeze everything in around caring duties.

Thanks. I've been using them and they work really well, so they're useful too. :)
