View Full Version : FO - Fishy Potholder!

I'm way excited about this one... I normally don't make things that are supposed to be functional, but this potholder was so darn cute. I probably won't use it (for fear of getting it singed or dirty!) but I still love it!

very charming. I wouldn't use it either. It would make a nice gift.

It's a Fishy Tawashi (only you've chosen not to use it tawashi?...heh). Pattern found on Ravelry....I made one last year, still haven't used it....you can find pics of mine here: http://knittinghelp.com/forum/showthread.php?t=95995&highlight=Fishy+Tawashi (http://knittinghelp.com/forum/showthread.php?t=95995&highlight=Fishy+Tawashi)

That's the pattern I used :o) Only took about two hours to make... with many breaks because the cotton was killing my hands.

I envisioned making a string of these to use as a valence on my kitchen window...if only I had the ambition!

Adorable! I don't think I could use it either!

I really like it. I am trying to knit a potholder now, but it's taking me a while. The first color is tan, and I'm hoping to add green to it later if I can get to the store soon. Don't know why it takes me a long time to knit things. Just starting out, and it's taking me many hours. I'd like to create a couple of nice, thick tablemats to go with it.

Totally cute!

In bright colors, a great little kid toy.

It's adorable!! I would probably be scared to use it to though! LOL
