I was going to make a sweater for my mother for Christmas. I bought the yarn, found a pattern, was all set to go. And then I realized that I had about a week left before I needed to put gifts in the mail and it was time to come to my senses. Instead, I turned to an old standby -- potholders!

I think one of the first crafts I did was latchhook -- I have vague memories of latchhooking some truly ugly potholders. These, on the other hand, are not ugly. At least I don't think so. With a S. Asian color scheme and theme; crocheted, with some embroidered flowers. One attempt at a hibiscus (maybe looks more like a palm tree, but tropical at least, right?), and some little flowers that I will persist in calling jasmine blossoms. I title this pattern "Sunny Desi Potholders."

Hopefully my mom will actually use these, instead of saving them 'for good,' as she is wont to do. And maybe in January, I can actually start a sweater for her for next Christmas...
