Now, I find myself addicted to making those little potholders. "Loopy for loops???" Well, what can I say? It keeps my fingers happy when I can't think of anything else to do and I never have burned hands in my kitchen..not to mention no lack of hotpads to put pots down on. Try it, you'd like it! Best loops available from Harrisville Designs...don't use the nylon ones, which not only CONDUCT heat, but curl up like a dead spider when you take them off the looms. Nasty. Get the cotton ones and skip the first post on each side, so you always start and finish one post away from each end. Easier to crochet them off and you won't miss those extra loops.
