My first potholders!

So, I've heard from a lot of people that once you try hand-knitted/crocheted potholders and dishcloths, you'll never go back to the storebought ones. Only one way to find out, right?

So here they are, made in 100% cotton yarn so they are super washer friendly and can handle the heat! First is a doubled over square potholder.

Second is what I have dubbed, "Mr. Turtle" His tail makes the loop so you can hang him. I think his feet are a little tiny, but hey, my feet are a little big, so who am I to complain. I think he's a cutie! I'm tempted to sew on googly eyes!
