caffe latte potholder



Yum. Coffee in any of its flavors or varieties is a liquid love in my every day life.


~~

A mystery wrapped in brown,

A fragile enigma,

Enveloping the senses,

With the earthy steam

Of a bean.


The mind wrapped in warmth,

The essence of dark roast,

Heating from within,

The senses thrill,

With every lingering

Sniff of the aroma

In the mug.

So I got busy with my mocha colored yarn and added milk white and bright aqua to complement the rich hue of coffee.



And I have seen this lovely potholder pattern that have seen pop up all over the web. Seeing it the first time I would have never believed that it is crocheted as individual blocks and then crocheted in a line with simple border of single crochet. (This is where my daughter wrapped it around her hips and determined it would make the cutest of belts.....hmmm.)




Then a gathering stitch is made through the center of each block and the flower begins to form.




But the real beauty is seen when the corners of each block is finger-pressed to form these caffe latte petals.




It reminds me of the foamy goodness in a steamy cup of caffe latte.

Nice potholder!!! I love the colors you have choosen. White-milk, blue-water and brown-coffee. I love coffee too and tea. I love coffees at Starbucks. When I was in the States last year I tried almost all the flavours.

blue and brown - it's just a great combination - earth and sky - and your work is so perfect (as usual!).

Thank you particularly for the assembly photos. It's is similar to the fold back method used on Cathedral Windows quilts.

I have another question I hope you will please answer: I would like to know the post or project/pattern for the first image on the left in your header photo, the blue motif. My email is nshour@comcast.net and I would really appreciate any info you recall. Thank you for a great blog!
