henrietta


There is certain vibrant charge to the air when spring seems to be nearing.  

A newness.  A deep, strengthening sigh.  A feeling of ahhhhhh....

I love that feeling.  And walking through the house with the sun's warmth through the windows, I start to visualize all that spring entails.


For starters, what's certainly needed are spring-like potholders. 

More specifically -- ones that will help usher in spring with their cuteness & quaintness.

From here:
(this book can be purchased as a download here.)


....the perfect spring-like potholder.




This is Henrietta.


She was sooooooo easy & quick to crochet & I used my g hook & Lily Sugar 'n Cream yarn.


Now.

Hopefully spring does indeed arrive soon (and that nasty weatherman has got it all wrong with his forecast of 8 in. of snow by Wednesday morning.....)

Loving that shade of blue. Miss Henrietta is a darling and would suit my sister-in-laws kitchen in a green/orange combo. Cherrie

Henrietta is so very charming, love that she brings a smile on the face whenever you see her. And the colours - I am always in love with that certain blue and the red and yellow makes it even more pretty. I could imagine that Henrietta looks good, too, on a pillow or bag, very funny and cheery. Most lovely.

Claire said...

Oh she's just gorgeous, I love her.......definitely Springlike.
She would brighten up any kitchen on a dull, grey day.

8inches of snow, wow.....

What a delight your blog is, and Henrietta is so cheerful! Thank you for being an inspiration to me!

P.S. Do you do your own photography? It's gorgeous!

Such a cute potholder - actually too cute to use - think I would hang her on the wall! The good thing about snow at this time of the year is that it will not last long - spring is right around the corner!

I LOVE Henrietta!! I went to Annie's Attic to find the book but it must be out of print. Is this a new booklet or have you had it a while? I sooo want a Henrietta of my own. Thanks, gelswood@aol.com

Our Wednesday is coming to an end on this side of the world. I wonder if you are getting the predicted snow. That book looks like it has some absolutely adorable projects. Henrietta is so very sweet. Have a great rest of the week. Tammy

La Mañosa said...

Aww, I love your Henrietta! She is really sweet.

I've been wanting to try a pattern for a potholder that is a shape of some animal or thing. I've seen a Scottie dog and a cottage and a few other things I'd like to try.

Bari Jo said...

Henrietta looks so cute. That seems to be a very interesting book of potholders.

Henny Penny is so cute, what a lovely idea to share with your readers. Thank you! Great colours and so cheery, would make working in the kitchen so much happier I'm sure.

Henrietta is precious. I will have to make her a sister to stay at our house! Thanks for sharing.

Oh, I just made myself a little rooster, but he's not a potholder.. Your Henrietta potholder is SO-ooooo CUTE!!! Just love her! ~tina

Marie said...

I love Henrietta! I also love the tatting and pillowcase in your previous post. I inherited my grandmother's tatting shuttles and learned how to tat from books. My grandmother tatted from the smallest thread--sure wish I could do that. I have trouble doing it with #10 thread. I have so much knitting and crochet to do and the tatting will have to wait.
Love,
Marie

lucile said...

I love your Henrietta! I can't find the book, though. Any way we can get the pattern from you? I would love to make some of these for a dear friend.
