Potholder Progress

Thank you to everyone who has wished me wellness this weekend! After many hours on the couch today snoozing I feel like I'm getting back to normal. Perhaps after a good night's rest I'll be in tip top shape for work tomorrow... That's my hope!

I was able to finish the potholder today, however it is not the entirely Magic version that I was trying to produce. That version is able to be folded in a way that creates a smooth square, and mine didn't want to fold. So, I stitched the top sides together which is why you see the scalloped edge. If I had done it exactly right you would see four sides that are all the same. Oh well... I piddled with it over and over last night and decided that I liked my scalloped edge just fine. Matter of fact it makes me like it even more...since it screams having my touch to the design, whether that was my original intention or not. It's really thick and I can't wait to try it out in my kitchen!

So, there it is... my potholder! Any thoughts? I think now I'm going to start this neck wrap that I found at Simple Beans made by Jenni. I have some great green yarn that I think will be just the thing...
