I know I disappeared but I really hadn’t been doing anything crafty lately. This weekend I had some time and decided to rectify that.

The idea of trying to make every single Christmas gift by hand is very intimidating to me. Instead I want to spend the year making handmade birthday gifts. My first test is my mom’s birthday on the 9th of March. Since I just started knitting a pot holder seemed like a simple project that would still turn out fabulous. I’m using these instructions with the basket weave pattern. The knitting only takes a couple hours so now I need to find a coordinating fabric :). I’ll use it for one side of the pot holder and then as an accent for some dishtowels (like the picture below).

Any ideas?
