it's hip to be square potholder


.
I can't get my mind off of this tunisian entrelac crochet.
.
And because of that -- all other projects have come to a stand-still and I am putting together combinations of colors. And more colors. Aaaaaand more colors.
.


.
My yarn stash is in our basement & I do most of my crocheting upstairs, so after about 14 trips up and down the steps of decision making....
.
Do I like these 3 colors?
No.
How 'bout these 3 colors.
No again.
.
I finally came upon a combination of three colors from my Sugar 'n Cream bits & pieces of cotton thread.
.

.
And what better thing than for this entrelac patchwork block to become a potholder?
.


.

I think I'll finish the back with one-colored square of entrelac and single crochet a border around the edge.

.

Wow. I can finally fill my kitchen drawer with cheery, bright & simply made potholders. Something our drawer is in desperate need of.
