Last potholder, start socks

I finished another crocheted potholder. This one was made with some yarn leftover from my last pair of felted clogs. It got plenty big - 8" x 8" - but Paul says he likes them big. It felt like alot of slogging with single crochet, though, so I guess I like them smaller!

This may be it for the crocheting. I definitely prefer the knitting, but it was a nice change.

Here's the recently dyed yarn, skeined up, prewashing. Looks like boucle, doesn't it? Pretty kinky after being in knitted condition for almost two years.

We had a long car trip on Sunday, taking Ben back to school. Lots of time for knitting. I couldn't resist the colors in this newly dyed yarn, so I started up a sock. Just a basic sock, two circular needles, toe up.

We took Ben back to Luther College in Iowa. He loaded up his little blue jeep, and we loaded up the Tahoe. I'm not really sure how he'll organize all that stuff in his dorm room, and fit his room-mate in, too!

Our traditional first day of school picture!

Do you know where I could find the pattern for that potholder? I would really appreciate it!

Also, I LOVE the socks! Beautiful colors & they look super cozy.
